Communication via text presents its own unique set of challenges. So much gets lost in the emptiness of it all. It's very hard to communicate tone via text. Three people could read the same text message and take three completely different meanings from it.
Although, some texts are very blunt and there's no getting around what the sender was trying to say. Keep reading to see some text messages that really threw us for a loop.

What's The Point Of Texting, Then?
If you can't send cat videos via text, then what's the point of texting?
I think that sad face emoticon is the only appropriate response to a text like this.
I can't tell if this grandfather is joking or if he really hasn't heard the phrase "love birds" before.
If I had to bet on it, I'd say he was joking.
