We’ve all been there – you get overzealous about a message and shoot it off without thinking, before spotting a typo. 

Most times they’re harmless – but occasionally, they dramatically change the meaning of the whole text. 

Bored Panda collated a selection of the most hilarious texting fails from around the world, including both spelling errors and speech-to-text mishaps. 

In one instance, a woman from the US misspelt ‘leaving’ as ‘lesbian’ – which had her husband in stitches. 

Elsewhere, a mother in Oklahoma warning to ‘drive carefully’ accidentally instructed her daughter to ‘drug carefully’.
