11 mortifying drunk texts that prove it's never a good idea

Put. Down. The. Phone.

YOU’RE ON A night out, having the craic, and for some unknown reason you feel your hand slowly moving towards your phone to send some form of mortifying message.

It might be to someone you have your eye on, it could be to a friend – it really could be anyone. But one thing you know is you will wake up the next day with so much regret.

But you can comfort yourself that others have woken up to worse:

1. This subtle inquiry at 3.48am

Just checking they were still awake.


2. This guy replying to himself

Going massively viral might have helped the hangogver.

3. Reading back over some attempted navigation in the nightclub the next morning is cringe central
