21 Texts That Are So Funny I'd Happily Pay Overage Fees For Them

Recently we shared a post about texts no one — and I mean NO ONE — wants to receive, like this one from a father to his son's 19-year-old girlfriend:

2.This boyfriend who got hammered and did something regretful...in the most wholesome way possible:

Text message exchange. One person says they messed up while drunk and ordered a bunch of presents for the other person’s house. The other responds with, "wut" and "omg."

3.And this guy who got a wrong text and made the person who sent it really, really, REALLY regret it:

4.This woman found an old phone full of her texts to her junior high boyfriend...and they're just so LOL-tastically junior high:

5.This boyfriend who responded to his girlfriend like this (she was looking for a romantic answer but — SPOILER ALERT — didn't get it):

Text exchange where one person asks another a question, which leads to a blunt response and a humorous complaint about their heart being cold. Ends with wanting to live in their head

6.This boyfriend who had an equally unromantic response to his sweetheart of a girlfriend:

Not on Wednesday:

And not even on Friday:

Screenshot of text conversation: "Who is picking me up?" Response: "I've placed bicycle parts by the exit to your school. You'll have to assemble it to ride home. Good luck." The conversation includes emojis and a reaction GIF with text "NO, I'M SERIOUS."

Text messages read:"Happy birthday man" on Nov 19, 2021, followed by "Thanks dude"."Happy birthday man" on Aug 28, 2022, followed by "Thanks"."Happy birthday big man" on a Monday, followed by "Thanks"

14.This guy who got stoned and responded to his own message:

A humorous text conversation where a person shows their hand holding a pencil, then texts, "You still at work?" Respondent replies, "No I'm home!" Finally, they admit being high

Screenshot of a humorous text conversation. The first message shows a small image of a goldfish, followed by, "Hey, Mind if I get closer?" The next message contains a larger image of the same goldfish, with the reply, "Sure?"

I'm pretty sure he sent these just for the halibut.

An iMessage conversation about a goldfish is shown. First image shows a full goldfish, second image shows a close-up of the goldfish's face. Text: "Can I get a little closer?" "I guess?"

Or maybe this is his way of being roe-mantic!
