It happens to us all.
The phone rings, you answer. The person on the other end asks for a name that does not belong to you or anyone in your home. You politely state that they have the wrong number and you both hang up.
The same scenario is now beginning to pop up more and more in the text messaging world. My understanding is that protocol is to text the person back letting them know that you got their message and not the party they were trying to reach.
Sometimes, however, you get a message that throws you for such a loop that you can’t possibly text the person back. In my case I was in such hysterics that I dropped my phone.
Because the message I received read:
Welcome to the Partners OB Team Pregnancy SMS demo.
You are 5 weeks pregnant.
Now, in my world, that is an IMPOSSIBLE task without a little lot of divine (or medical) intervention and some serious explaining to my honey!
Add to that the fact that I am now on birth control for recent medical issues and this text is just that much more hilarious.
I shared the text with my honey and she nearly fell out of her chair. I believe her comment was “wouldn’t THAT be funny”!!!
I’m certain that somewhere some soon to be mom is anxiously awaiting the results of her pregnancy hormone test. She is assuredly hoping for the answer I already know to be true.
I, on the other hand, am ecstatic that it’s not me!
