An acquaintance/friend of mine sent me a misdirected text a couple of weeks ago intended for another friend of hers with the same name. No big deal. I let her know, she apologized – done.
So, today, I get a picture message from the same friend. When I open it, I’m rather shocked to see that it is a picture of her. With her legs splayed out in her bathtub. Granted, the picture is taken in such a way that I can’t really see anything truly naughty, but…yeah. Now, to me, she’s obviously having fun with some guy, and I’ve got no issues with that. I’m not offended by it or anything, but I feel badly for her to have inadvertently sent something so personal to someone else.
I then immediately get a second text with this deep apology, and a promise to change her other friend’s name in her phone. And I’m just trying to figure out how to respond. Do I text her back laughing it off, or sincerely accepting her apology? Or is it less embarrasing for her if I don’t respond at all?
What would you do?
