Guy accidentally texts NSFW message to his boss, doesn't know if he's been fired

All of us, at some point or another in our lives, have experienced that heart-in-mouth sensation of realising that we've just sent a message to the wrong number. Sometimes it's something innocent and easily-fixed with a simple, "Sorry, didn't mean to send that" follow-up message; but other times, it's far, far more complicated.

This was aptly demonstrated this week by Cory Hrobowski, who posted a screenshot to Twitter after accidentally conducting a very lewd conversation with his boss.

Cory, who is from Joliet, Illinois, tweeted a screencap of a text conversation on Monday with the caption, "At this moment I knew I f**ked up".

What followed was an exchange in which an unknown number messaged Cory saying, "I'm making you come at 12 on Friday."

Now, that message could be taken in any number of ways - especially from a stranger. Maybe it was an invitation to an appointment, or perhaps it was a bluntly-put chat up line. The only way to find out for sure would be to ask for some clarification.

But, instead of checking what the person meant (or even asking who the sender was) Cory fired back with this charming response: "First off you're not making me do s**t second off I don't remember scheduling any d**k appointments."

And then came the kicker: the sender was Cory's boss.

The tweet quickly went viral and, at the time of writing, is currently sitting at about 31,000 retweets and 87,000 likes. However, despite the huge amount of attention the post got, nobody was able to give Cory any good advice on how he should handle the situation.

"Okay I’ve still yet to respond can someone tell me wtf I say to this," he pleaded the next day.

"You just gotta text her from a whole different number," suggested one follower. "Pretend she has the wrong # and that you got a new phone too."

"Just reply 'I am so sorry, I just saw this. My girl must've had my phone and been paranoid as usual. Anyways, sounds good. I'll be there,'" said another.

Unfortunately, Corey didn't take this advice, and instead left his boss on read for a whole day. "I never responded and she texted me last night and said 'I’ll be giving you a call tomorrow to discuss the terms of your employment with us,'" he explained.

But did he answer the call? No.

So, at this point, not only had he sort of made sexual advances towards his boss, ignored her text, and ignored her call, he'd also broadcast the entire exchange to an audience of millions on social media.

And - as you might have been able to guess - it did not end well for him.

In one final tweet about the saga on, Cory posted to say, "Update... I don't have a job." And that was posted on Tuesday, meaning that the poor guy didn't even make it to his shift on Friday.

Hopefully, Cory manages to find himself a new employer very soon; preferably one that will warn him before changing phone numbers.
