An Imgur user that goes by the name velaskin shared screenshots from a text exchange he had with an unknown number. The women sending the texts believed she was communicating with her 18-year-old daughter, Jess, and refused to believe the 35-year-old man wasn’t Jess.
As reported by the Daily Mail, the case of mistaken identity began as the mother asked who she thought was her daughter to pick up a few things on the way home, namely milk and lunch “meet,” which ended up being turkey and ham. When he responded, telling the mother, “I’m pretty sure you have the wrong number. I’m already at home,” the woman said, “Stop playing and can u go back to the store.”
He continued by insisting the mother had the wrong number, and asserting he was “not going to the store for you.”
Getting obviously frustrated, and still believing she was talking to Jess, the mother insisted, saying, “Jess I need you to grab that or I am not taking you and Brad to the movies tonight.”
The exchange continued as he stated, “milk and turkey sound delicious ham is gross,” and asked, “what movie are we going to see?” This caused the mother to ask, “Since when did u start hating ham?” to which he replied, “I’ve always hated ham. Sometimes I think you don’t even hear me.”
As the messages continued, he admitted to dreaming of the day where “I would get a wrong number text just so I could mess with the other person. Today was that day…”
The mother still wasn’t convinced, asking again if the person she believed was Jess had gone to the store. He asked if the woman thought she was texting her child, receiving the mother’s response, “Your father will be home for lunch in 30 mins.”
He responded, “I am a 35 year old man from Wisconsin. I swear. I could have messed with you so bad,” continuing by saying he didn’t because “a child is involved I just can’t bring myself to do it. You have the wrong number.”
Even after sending a photo of himself and his wife, the mother still didn’t believe that he wasn’t Jess, or that Jess wasn’t around. She said, “Who is that? Brads family? I am calling his parents if u keep this up.”
The conversation continued with the mother canceling the movie plans along with a credit card belonging to Jess.
The texts finally stopped once the mother realized that the recipient of her messages was indeed, not Jess.
