Most of us have had a slip up along the way – one where we’ve sent a text meant for one person to someone else. If we’re lucky, it was something innocuous or only slightly weird.

If we’re not lucky, we could end up like these 12 saps, who accidentally sent some totally awkward texts to their parents.

12. When you realize your mistake too late…

But at least it wasn’t a dirty text.

11. This one isn’t so bad.

It’s kind of sweet and I love that the dad gave him crap for it.

10. Do you suppose she noticed?

She definitely noticed.

9. You’ve got some ‘splaining to do.

Assuming your father knows why phones default to certain words.

8. You know she didn’t buy that.

She was just too tired to deal with it.

7. He expertly trolled her.

I can feel the sympathetic pit of dread in my stomach.

6. Well this is wholesome.

I bet that was the best mistake ever.

5. Dad knew he wasn’t talking about reverting to his childhood.

Also that was a terrible cover story!

4. This one is killing me.

Of course that’s what Mom is worried about.

3. “There is something wrong with you.”

Only a true, loving parent could say something like that.

2. I have no idea what’s going on here.

If I was his parent, I also would never want to know what’s going on here.

1. When your parents share everything.

Now you can be embarrassed twice!

I’m dying of secondhand embarrassment.
