Ah, the wrong number text. An awkward situation for all involved - but, with the right perspective, anything is an opportunity for humor. These screen caps of responses to wayward accidental texts are a triumph of imagination, forgiveness, and - dare we say it? True art. Sure, you could just ignore a text from a wrong number but where's the fun in that. These people took their smartphone by the emoji keyboard and/or reverse camera, and crafted some of the best wrong number text responses ever.

What's the best way to respond to a wrong number text? Rank your favorite replies below, from cleverly timed memes, to graceful pun usage, to outright trolling. Use these examples as inspiration for the next time you receive a booty call from some unsuspecting stranger who was given the wrong digits, probably on purpose. If there's any doubt in your mind that these aren't totally real, just remember what my grandmother always said: If it's on the Internet, it must be true!

How do you handle it when someone sends you a text to the wrong number? Are you irritated, disappointed, or excited for the possibility of making a new friend? Has anyone ever sent you a funny response when you goofed up and sent a message meant for your tender lady to a total stranger? 

Check out these shining examples of opportunistic folk making the best out of a strange situation, and vote for the funniest wrong number text responses that you wish you thought of. Don't worry though, now you can use them in the future!
