Normally, sending a text to the wrong number results in radio silence or a simple "sorry, wrong number." But there are rare times when the stranger on the other end of the phone decides to playfully engage in the conversation with the warmth of an old friend.
When a young woman named Syd texted a picture of herself trying on an evening gown, she reasonably assumed the photo would reach her friend ready with fashion advice.
Instead, the decontextualized photo reached a father and his six children.
Luckily, he was a kind (and uncreepy) soul who sent her back his thoughts on the dress.
He even sent a photo of five of his six children giving the dress a thumbs up.
This pure serendipitous interaction quickly went viral.
The sweet baby not pictured in the text photo is currently undergoing treatment for Leukemia, so the popularity of the tweet has helped spread the word about fundraising.
The hearts of the internet have effectively melted.
Given this response, Syd might text want to text family on purpose next time she goes dress shopping.
