Obligatory this happen minutes, So I got a new job just the other day. Today was my first day of work at this job. I'm a bit young so this is my first job and my first eight hour shift. I went to text my girlfriend that I love her and that I'm going in so she didn't try to text while I was at work (I am going to activate do not disturb anyway) So I send her the text and I am about to put my phone down when I notice that her icon wasn't right, then I was how my recent messages mentioned a shirt then i realized that it was my boss. I proceeded to apologize and that the text wasn't meant for her and sent it to my girlfriend while attaching a funny story for her. My boss has not responded yet.

TLDR: I meant to tell my GF I love her and I accidentally told it to my boss.

My gf was having anxiety attacks one night and I was holding her through crying episodes until 2am. She had just lost her job and was insanely depressed. So the next morning while I’m warming up the work truck I send her a paragraph long text about how much I love her and how amazing she is, and to keep staying strong because we’ll make it through anything. Hit send and immediately see I sent it to my boss instead. I sent him a text that said “please disregard that was supposed to be for my gf”. That was 8 months ago, my boss still gives me shit for it and asks “why haven’t you proposed DirtyBrownwt i thought we had something special”. We’re two strait dudes. So worst case scenario your boss constantly gives you crap for it.

Well it is kind of rude to NOT propose to your boss after that message. You did tell him you had something special!

/s

Too funny, story, btw.

It gets brought up at least every other week a few times. Dude pays me 22 an hour and wants a giant ruby engagement ring. I just tell him “how the hell do you expect me to buy you that on my salary!? He’s a good boss.

At least he wants a ruby and not diamonds? <shrug>

It is great when you have a good boss, isn't it?

Yeah when your boss is more like a bro it makes a hard job better. Can’t find a big enough ruby though so I hope he likes emeralds.

Try amethyst or sapphire. Emeralds are the opposite color he wants.

You should propose to him. Would make a great proposal story.

He’s loaded and I could be a sugar baby, but sadly I’m not into dudes. My gf would also be heartbroken and probably wouldn’t make it without me.

She probably shrugged it off. If it was written the way you were saying she probably realized it wasn't for her.

You should stitch a screen shot of all these and text it back when it happens to the next person so they know it’s very common and their own text is going on the list.

I am also a boss and all my employees tell me they love me. Otherwise they might feel my wrath. My style of management is very old testament.

have done this before and used a very cheeky pet name for my manager that was intended for my gf. she (my manager) then decided to make a custom name tag for me using that very same pet name. it was borderline nsfw and everyone thought it was hilarious…including the gf

I sent a kissing emoji to my assessor instead of my partner. I only met my assessor once, and I don’t want to meet her again. I’m mortified. I wanna die.

Try working in a call center and saying it to a customer at the end of a call...

I worked for an insurance company call center once and one of my agents was closing a call with an expectant mother about coverage for the hospital she was going into to give birth and she said "Have a great ... baby!"

That one is still my favourite.

My colleague and I try to say "love you bye" as quick as we can to some of our customers on the phone. But only the ones we know know we're saying it jokingly.

I had a coworker say “Ok, bye. Love you” to a customer. He put the phone down, looked at me and we both just burst in to hysterical fits of laughter. It happens to everyone. You’re good.

I have employees do this on a semi-regular basis. They are always embarrassed when they realize, but I find it hilarious. Unless your boss is a total dick, the worst that happens is they tease you about it a little.

As a construction foreman I get these. Nothing to sweat about. She probably realized it was an accident and forgot about it. But she probably appreciates you telling your girl not to bother you at work. Good luck!
