22 Funny Pocket-Dialing Stories

No matter how far technology advances, innovation has yet to overcome the power of the butt dial.

To that end, these Redditors have shared awkward, funny or wholesome pocket-dialing experiences that will, at the very least, remind you to lock your phone before taking a leak.

wickity_whack 11y I once went to a friends house to borrow her penis shaped cake pans for a bachelorette party. We sat there for a few minutes talking about penises, she had two different sized pans so there were some jokes told... then I noticed I was sitting on my phone and butt dialed the Child Welfare Provincial Emergency Duty line.

BigRedKetoGirl . . 4y My kids' dad accidentally butt-dialed me once when he and the kids were driving somewhere. I could hear the kids just cussing away, and their dad laughing, then he reminded them that they could only cuss while they were alone with him, and only in the van past a certain road in town. Made no sense. Years later, he apparently forgot that, because when I let my son start cussing in front of me when he was like 15-16 years old, his dad had a little bitch fit about it, saying it was disrespectful for our son
Siestasam 11y I pocket dialed a girl that I was semi-involved with while I was taking a piss. And it was the longest piss of my life. I didn't realize it while I was doing it.

Razor311203 4y I used to hang around with a girl that was a bit... Clingy.

I'm really paranoid, and I said in a loud voice HELLO?, and I got no answer, the inhaling became louder and ragged, I tried 3 or 4 times again and whoever it was hanged because they probably heard me. Three months later, I find out she was keeping my used shirts and smelled them. ... 465
