So you woke up with a hangover and the horrifying realization that you called or texted someone in your intoxicated state. Here's how to fix your drunk dialing or texting disaster.
Step 1: Take stock
Take stock of the situation. If you drunk dialed a distant ex looking for a little somethin' somethin', just let it go. Calling back to apologize or explain won't improve the situation -- it will only make you look lamer.
Consider deleting ancient history from your phone.
Step 2: Heal the anger
To repair an angry lash out, write the victim a brief, heartfelt email apologizing for your ugly, slurred words. If you have bad blood to settle, suggest a sober meet-up to hash it out calmly.
Step 3: Control damage at work
If your drunken digits involved a work colleague, you've got some explaining to do. Grab them the next day you're in the office and casually say you're sorry. Throw in a white lie for good measure -- an event like a bachelor or bachelorette party or a reunion with old college friends can often serve as a passable drunk dialing excuse.
Make sure your lie can't easily be discredited.
Step 4: Lie big-time
If you drunk dialed or sent a drunk text to a current love interest, it's time for a real whopper. Tell them you were roofied, a friend stole your phone, aliens invaded your body -- the more extreme, the better. If you play your cards right (and your drunken message wasn't too obscene), they may laugh it off and give you another chance.
Step 5: Get an app
Protect yourself in the future with an app designed to deter drunk dials and drunk texts. There are ones that block you from using designated numbers for a set period of time; others that require a friend entering a password to override the block; and even breathalyzer apps that include drunk dialing and drunk texting lockdowns if you're over the limit. Of course, you could simply stay sober. But what fun would that be?
Did You Know?
95 percent of cellphone owners surveyed admit to having drunk dialed.
Damn. Just drunk texted this girl I adore, who was my neighbor for a few years, just moved out and we got somewhat close. My drunken mind decided to tell her I could give her a better massage than they do in Thailand and that my fingers and tongue could do amazing things. My numbers been blocked for a few days now but I managed to call and apologize to her voicemail. I fkn hope she comes around but man... This Chinese girl is DIFFICULT. last thing she texted me was 'that's gross..' Then blocked me. She won't text or call me back to say not to talk to her again or anything. This is the worst, being left to hang like a dirty old pair of wet underwear on the line. I need closure!! Ugh!!
