Can I Blame this on “Damn You Auto Correct”?

GG of The Glad Gardener is back at World’s Worst Moms with tales from the teenage trenches. This latest one about her 15-year-old daughter will make you long for the days when cell phones were those giant, shoe-boxy things that businessmen used while riding in limos.

There are some times when my stupidity amazes even me. 

Last night, at 8:37 p.m., I sent my mom this text:

Earlier when I went to the girls room to talk to Cassie I opened the door and it smelled really really bad like someone had either bad gas or pooped in there. Awful!

At 8:38 p.m., I receive this message from Cassie:

Umm you sent that to me… And its Oreo’s cage (Guinea Pig), I was gonna clean it today but didn’t.

OMG, how embarrassing! I seriously wanted to hide and never talk to her again. But I replied with this:

Cud u please please clean it soon? I wasn’t sure if u were sick or there something wrong in there. Not like it’s easy talking to someone about that kind of thing.

Then sent this one again right after that one:

Also very sorry about that text.

She replied:

You thought that was ME!?

I replied:

Wasn’t sure what or who it was. To be honest I thought your dad had spent time in there and farted a lot. Smile. Was kinda worried.

She replied:

LOL its alright I’m not upset, I’ll clean it tomorrow morning.

I replied:

Ok glad you’re not sick or dying! Smile. Poor Me… I sleep in the same room as your Dad even when he has gas. Yuck. But its a part of getting older.

She replied:

That sucks :/ lol haha you will get there. Smile

I replied:

So will you! LOL

Wow. . . that whole situation could have turned out SO much worse than it did! I still don’t see how a guinea pig’s cage can smell like human gas but oh well. She says it wasn’t her, I guess I will take her word for it. . . this time. 

I never did send that text to my mom.

Love the interaction with your daughter. This is so funny. She sounds like she's a smart one with a great sense of humor.

another reason I am glad we don't have text messaging – I would screw it up daily!
and for the record – kids do stink! I don't get it, but I GET it.
