A mother left her child cringing in embarrassment after texting him, but making a huge typo.
Posting on Reddit, the woman’s child uploaded a screenshot of the embarrassing mix up – and it quickly went viral.
The social media poster captioned the snap: “TMI Mum!!”
And, his embarrassment had fellow Brits in the CasualUK forum rolling around laughing.
The photo showed two messages on an iPhone screen from the contact “mum” and the first one read: “Dogging at Farnham again with my trusty tools.”
Alongside the words was a small snap of a bag with gardening gear inside.
We’re blushing at the thought of getting that text from a parent!
A quick follow up text from the poster’s mum said: “Oh no, that should be DIGGING.”
For anyone who doesn’t know, dogging refers to the practice of watching or engaging in exhibitionist sexual activity in public – usually car parks or woods.
And, 1,200 Reddit users quickly joined in laughing at the awkward typo.
One chuckling Brit joked: “You should buy her a nice set of knee pads.
“I know my knees always take a bit of wear and tear when I’m dogging.”
While another added: “Farnham eh? (Checks map).”
A third laughed: “Dogging is just as much a British tradition as gardening is.”
Another poster pointed out an uncomfortable truth and said: “Autocorrected for Mum there, what has she been talking about with others?”
And another noted: “Never been more relieved at a message, eh?”
