When it comes to the exchange of conversation and information, many people these days prefer to text over the traditional phone call or face-to-face conversation. Some people will call it the decline of communication while others will call it the innovation of technology. With the handy invention of smart phones, you can now take a photo and send it to someone within minutes. Before this, people would take pictures on a camera, get them printed either at home or at a drug store, and then mail the photos off to their recipients, where they would reach their destination within days or weeks. In today’s world, the ease of picture sending is almost too easy, and can result in catastrophe very quickly. Phones are meant to store thousands of contacts where someone can be holding several conversations at once. How often do we say to someone, “Oh sorry, wrong window” or “Sorry, that was meant for someone else”? It happens more often than it should.
These errors are created from moving too fast. Sometimes sending something to the wrong has little to no repercussions. But what happens when you’re sending a photo to your honey or significant other, and then it turns out you sent it to your boss or your grandmother? A whole new level of embarrassment happens. If it has happened to you personally, then you can probably relate to the feelings of wanting to completely cut yourself off from the person, change your name, move to a different country, get plastic surgery to conceal your identity, and more. What is probably worse than the accidental delivery itself is when that person decides to share it with the rest of the world, meaning they want to share it with the Internet.
In this video are some of the most embarrassing photos that have been sent to the wrong person. Whether it was the sender or recipient who posted these photos online, may they serve as a reminder to all of us to double check who you are sending stuff to, and may they serve as an example of what happens when you don't slow-down in your life. Accidental photos are also a great way to get to know a different side of a person. Whether the photo exposes a secret life, or you learn how your grandmother handles an awkward situation, accidental photos are actually quite embarrassing for both parties involved, not just the recipient.
From nudes being accidentally sent to bosses to drunk photos being sent to parents, these embarrassing photos were mainly sent from the younger generation, but the older generation isn’t completely innocent. Since the older generation is still getting acquainted with our technology, accidentally sending photos to the wrong person is something that happens occasionally, but their intended recipients aren’t quite as cruel as to post it on social media for the world to laugh at.
If anything, this video is pretty much a wide-range lesson in how much you should be interacting with your professional contacts on social media like Snapchat, Facebook, and more.
