It's a dangerous thing, the ol' camera roll. All too easily you can end up showing someone something horrific from one of your WhatsApp groups that just pops up out of nowhere - or worse still, an intimate snap.
Danielle Cain learnt this lesson the hard way, sending a photo of her bare a*** to the carpet fitter.
The hairdresser had been messaging Carpets At Home, as you do, and the company asked her to send through pictures of her stairs and landing, so staff could provide a quote.
The 31-year-old obliged, but along with the stairs and landing, she also sent Carpets At Home an unsolicited pic of her burnt backside.
Explaining how the mix-up in June 2019 came to pass, Danielle, from Wigan, UK, said: "I had been on the sunbeds and burned my bum.
"I've been kind of speaking to this lad and I was telling him about it and he said, 'Oh my god, send me a picture,' so I did - that's why it was on my camera roll then.
"When I was asked to send a picture of my halls, stairs and landing, I've clicked that as well.
"I realised instantly that I'd sent that picture when they all came up on my screen.
"I looked and messaged them, 'Oh my god, I didn't mean to send that! I'm so so sorry, I've burned my bum on a sunbed.'"
Having realised her error, Danielle replied to Carpets At Home, saying: "Omg, omg omg wtf I'm so sorry I didn't mean click on that last pic Iv burned my arse on the sunbed ffs I'm so sorry. I'm dying."
By this point though, the damage was done.
Fortunately for her, there was an understanding woman at the other end of the phone, who was more interested in talking about her underlay than her red rear.
She replied: "Don't worry about it. Luckily I'm a girl so I can make sure the lads don't see the pictures. Based on the picture for our budget carpet including underlay and fitting would be from £160 this includes gripper or without underlay would be more around £125."
The conversation continued like this: brief bit of chat about Danielle accidentally sending through a picture of her burnt buttocks, then back to underlay.
Danielle said: "Thank god for that!!!! Hahahaha I'm absolutely mortified. That's brill, would u recommend underlay? Xx"
Carpets At Home replied: "Oh don't worry about it. Underlay gives you a better feel underfoot on the carpet and will make the carpet last longer."
So it seems Danielle got lucky that the woman on the other end of the phone was so damn professional. That said, her cooked a*** has now made it all over the internet.
Ashley, the social media manager at Carpets at Home, said: "It gave me a good laugh, it really did.
"It's funny some of the stuff you see within the flooring trade. It doesn't happen all the time but when it does it cracks me up."
Oh, the flooring trade - it's a laugh a bloody minute.
