of three people using mobile phones in England have sent text messages to
the wrong person by mistake -- often with highly embarrassing consequences.
The tales of text message
misfortune emerged from a survey of 700 people by British Internet mobile
services provider Bolt Blue.
They include a man who
told his girlfriend he was going to share a bath with her and "soap her

Another man, from Bristol,
texted a friend to ask for the number of a girl he fancied but accidentally

More than 50% said they
preferred to flirt via text than face to face or on the phone and 43% had
been dumped via text.
