Bizarre text messages sent to wrong number

And people wonder why I don’t ever answer numbers I don’t recognize…


#3

I sometimes wonder if there are a lot of female dogs named “Karma” (or indeed “Carma”, as in this case)


#4

I have a relative named Carma, but she’s not a dog.


#5

No, she’s right. Carma IS a bitch.


#6

I really wonder what all this texting is doing to people’s brains.


#7

My Dogma.was run over by Carma.


#8

It’s certainly a mental exercise trying to decipher them!


#9

I was wondering if he/she wasn’t talking about karma, but some other woman named “CARMAN”, since the text was “CARMA N IS THE REAL BITCH”-- with so much poor spelling and “grammer” there is a lot of room for interpretation. I probably would have started defending “my good friend Carman”, a la “Why bring Carman into this, she is not a bitch, she happens to be a Coptic nun and and she has never even met Dawn!”


#10

Yeah the ‘stroke girl’ phrase really creeped me out.


#11

I just hope the person doing all that texting wasn’t driving at the same time. Then again it might explain a few things.


#12

My take is that Dawn, who just suffered a stroke, relayed the wrong phone number to her relative, who is understandably distraught and lashing out haphazardly while trying to juggle logistics around getting Dawn safely home.


#13

Even with the information that was scrubbed out, it seems like it would still be relatively easy for a bored and empathy-challenged group of internet trolls to identify and harass this person, who, while comically presented, seems to have actually had to deal with some shit. Why not continuing scrubbing, a-la [city name, state name] and b______ and T________ ? Maybe Bobbie and Travis are psychopaths, and the caller really has had to deal with a mind-bending web of lies, or vice-versa. The whole thing comes off more mean spirited than funny.

I got a gmail account early and chose my first name, a dot, then my last name for my address. I’ve learned a lot about all the other people with my name. Glad this doesn’t happen with texts.


#15

Hmmm. Are we related? My mother and my cousin are both named Carma, and they’re the only two I’ve ever heard of with that spelling.


#16

I agree. I thought the timing of the “joke” was not so funny. The texter seemed to be dealing with a friend or relative (Dawn) who not only had had a stroke, but appeared to have a lot of drama going on around them complicating the situation. Texter seemed to also be part of the drama, IMHO, but I didn’t think it was kind to make fun of her.

Here’s an example of how to do it right:


#17

I dunno, I think she got the right number and this “thebearpoker” is lying! That makes the most sense!


#18

It bothered me too because I thought “stroke girl” was a back-formation from “stroke magazine.”


#19

My first reaction is to wonder if the person who initiated the text exchange might be suffering from some mental illness (bipolar)? Perhaps not entirely cool to push her buttons.


#20

People apply this same steadfast logic (No way I’m wrong ! Can’t fool me!) to voting. Le sigh.
