London student left red-faced after sending selfies to a stranger

A student has shared the hilarious text exchange she had after mistakenly sending selfies to a complete stranger. 

Twitter user Umulkhayr, 23, from London, decided to send pictures of herself to her phone via text message after running out of storage. 

Unfortunately the masters student saved her own number wrong by one digit, resulting in a very embarrassing mistake.

The surprised selfie-lover was confused after receiving a reply from what she thought was her own number, resulting in a comical conversation which quickly went viral on Twitter.  

Law student Umulkhayr, 23, from London, decided to send pictures of herself to her phone via text message after running out of storage- but was confused after receiving a message from what she thought was her own number

Taking to the social network, she wrote: ‘I saved my number so I could send photos to myself and it turns out I got ONE DIGIT wrong and I was sending my selfies to a complete stranger.’

She then shared a screengrab of the conversation, starting with pictures of her selfies. 

The stranger then replied: ‘Who is this’, to which Umulkhayr responded hilariously: ‘It’s me’, before adding: ‘Who are you’, and ‘I’m confused I thought this was my number’. 

She then received another message from the amused stranger, reading: ‘Lol this is my number’.

Continuing the Adele-inspired conversation, during which both continued to describe themselves as ‘me’, Umulkhayr soon realised she had saved her number wrong. 

‘I thought I was sending pictures to MYSELF. I am so sorry’, she added before revealing she had unwittingly swapped the number four for a five.

‘I am so sorry’, she wrote again in upper case, to which the unflappable stranger replied: ‘Looool that’s coool’ (sic). 

And the hilarious conversation was met with amusement online, garnering almost 10,000 retweets and over 26,500 likes.

Umulkhayr replied: ‘I genuinely thought I was having a convo with myself, I’ve never been so confused’.

And another user wrote: ‘I would have freaked out’, while one added: ‘This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while!’.

Replying to the hundreds of messages Umulkhayr later admitted she had never been so confused, adding: ‘I almost broke down when I realised! I’ve never been so baffled’.
