The Time I Sent Someone Porn. Accidentally.

Yes, you read that right. I sent someone porn. Accidentally. Let me emphasize that - it was an accident. A very embarrassing accident.

You're probably thinking to yourself, "Hmm...how do you accidentally send someone porn? That sort of thing never happens to me."

Well, that sort of thing never happens to me either. Until now. Yes, I'm a porn distributor, a purveyor of filth, a dealer in smut, a dispenser of naughtiness, if you will. Oh, the shame. Oh, the horror. My face is turning bright red even now as I think about it.

So, here's a top tip. If you're going to forward something on, make sure you read the whole thing first. Especially the top part. You know, the top part - the part that most people normally read first. Don't do what I did, which is skim right down to the bottom part, think to yourself, "Oh, that's interesting. I bet so-and-so would find that interesting too." Whatever you do, do not hit send. Do not forward the link on to so-and-so. Please, trust me - DO NOT hit send.

Oh sure, they'll find it interesting too. Just not for the same reasons you thought they would.

So how did this happen? I was doing some research for some equipment we want to buy for our boat. Just an innocent Google query, which pulled up a list of innocent links. Or so I thought. Clicked on one. Did not read the top part. Then I hit send.

The next day, so-and-so said to me, "That link you sent me was a little risque at the beginning, didn't you think?" I actually didn't know what so-and-so was on about and given my middle-aged hearing issues, wasn't actually sure if so-and-so said the link was risque or the link was gray. "Maybe so-and-so doesn't like gray font?", was what went through my head. Here's one thing I've learned about what people who are losing their hearing do - they just gloss over things and move on. I've become that person.

So, I ignored the whole risque/gray comment and moved on. "Did you see that list at the bottom? Wasn't that interesting?" 

I'm pretty sure what so-and-so was thinking was, "Isn't it interesting that she doesn't think what she sent me was risque. Wow, she's into some weird stuff. Let me just keep smiling and try to end this conversation as quickly as possible. This one's a nut job."

Later that day, I went back and clicked on the link to check out the information at the bottom part again. Unfortunately, this time I read the top part too. And it was naughty. Very, very naughty. Wow, who thought something you could buy for your boat could be used for such {ahem} interesting purposes.

Since then, I've apologized to so-and-so with a very bright red face. Fortunately, so-and-so just laughed it off and said it was funny.

Yikes.

Moral of the story. Make sure you read things carefully before you hit the send button. And, if I send you an email, you might not want to open it up.

True story. I wish it wasn't.

  1. LOL - great story and reminder. I did similar, only worse, I gave porn to a kid (technically I gave it to my daughter to give to her friend) - it was a dot to dot of a couples travels around New Zealand that I picked up at Paper Plus on a table with all sorts of gift items, and no indication that it was naughty dot to dots.

  2. We need that kind of entertainment around here! How boring would Indiantown be if we were only supposed to read about boat items instead of porn? :)

  4. Hahahaha!

    I could be way worse. I have a friend that brought her portable hard drive over to my desk one day at work. She wanted to show me some pictures of her vacation to St. Martin. Well she clicked on the wrong folder and I got see some pictures of her and her husband that I am sure she didn't intend for me to see. ;)

    Fair winds,

  5. I asked my PA to buy a particular men's magazine (cars technology fashion etc) for my ex husband for Xmas. She told me that she couldn't find the one I wanted and so had brought something similar and wrapped it up for me. Thank fully I unwrapped it to add another gift to the parcel and had a look at the magazine and realized then that it was a porn magazine! Not really what you want to go sending to your ex husband!

    1. Thankfully you averted that! Can you imagine the look on his face if he had opened a package with a porn mag from his ex? Great story!
