26 of the Funniest Times Someone Had the Wrong Number

If a number you didn’t recognize texted you “Ham,” would you respond? What about if they texted you “Atlantis” a few days later? 

A Redditor recalled these one-word texts he received from a wrong number, noting that he never responded, and the texts ultimately stopped. Just speaking for myself here, but I would’ve immediately texted back with “Salami” after getting the “Ham” message. There’s honestly no reason not to. That’s an opportunity to make a meat-loving friend. What if he was a butcher trying to find a pal who loved ham just as much as he did? Now we’ll never know. 

Other Redditors have recalled the funny messages they’ve received that were meant for someone else, and we’re thrilled that Uncle Steve found the pudding.

TheOrionNebula 108d When I got my new cell number the previous owner Edward never updated his social network. After so many conversations with his associates I pretty much became Edward, as I started to learn about his life. I resisted ever being cruel or an asshole and just simply integrated into his social circle. I think the worse thing I did was ruin his chances on purchasing a couch off of Craig's list. As the seller kept messaging me and I started to obsess over the framed horse photo in the background. She refused to throw in the horse... so
