Woman Accidentally Texts Boss Huge Bottle Of Champagne Minutes After Saying She Couldn't Get To Work

A woman made an absolute howler of a mistake when she accidentally text her boss a photo of a bottle of champagne at a party just moments after she'd told him she wouldn't be able to make it into work due to the bad weather.
Roberta Clark, 20, from Drumchapel in Scotland, was called into work by her manager last Tuesday, but sent a text to tell him she wouldn't be able to make it into work because of bad weather - which saw Scotland battered with snow and plunging temperatures.
In reality, Roberta, an electrician, was actually enjoying herself at a pal's gender reveal party in Cumbernauld.
Moments after sending the text saying she wouldn't be able to make it in, Roberta then sent a shot of a bottle of Champagne, chilling in an ice bucket, alongside the words 'dare me to pop it?'
But instead of pinging it to its intended recipient, Roberta accidentally sent her to boss.
Spotting her clanger, Roberta then quickly came clean - replying: "I'm so sorry I meant to forward that on to someone else.
"I'm at a baby reveal I'm so sorry was not meant for you."
Incredibly, Roberta didn't get the heave-ho from her job as a result of her mistake and her boss simply said he'd see her tomorrow. He sounds like a pretty easy going guy.
Roberta's girlfriend Shannon Watson 21, who shared the story online, said: "She was left mortified.
"After she accidentally messaged him the photo, she got really worried but thankfully he replied saying, 'See you tomorrow!'"
You had a close shave there, pal. Let that be a lesson to us all to not tell lies... or to at least check that we're replying to the correct person before hitting 'send'.
Last year, a woman was left red-faced after she accidentally sent a very personal text to a Hermes delivery driver instead of her health visit.
New mum Jessica Courtney, had meant to send a text to the health visitor asking for advice after experiencing some postpartum bleeding, following the birth of her son Jenson Carter.
But instead she sent it to Hermes delivery driver Stu, who handled the whole thing quite well to be fair.
He replied: "I'm not a doctor. I'm Stuart, your Hermes delivery driver.
"If you're worried pop into the pharmacy or see your GP."
