nvm wrong persom
from an 808 phone number, Monday, December 27, 8:49 PM EST

This is impressive because it’s a double misdirected text. It wasn’t supposed to go to me, but apparently it wasn’t even supposed to go to this OTHER Leila. So I have no idea who might need this information about how 808 is gonna b at grandma’s. I’ll just put it on the Internet in case any of you find it relevant.

from a 603 phone number, Wednesday, December 29, 9:52 AM EST

My dad calls me bean! But this is not a text message from my dad. For starters, I don’t think he really knows how to text.

from a 303 phone number, Wednesday, December 29, 12:39 PM EST

I have received so many text messages invitations to go ice skating this school vacation week. I haven’t accepted any of them, because I don’t know any of these people. But I’m glad they keep trying to include me, anyway.

Whoops. I slept through the second of these two messages. I hope Leila made it home okay without my aid.

Taste of thai now Debbie Fleming, CRS, ABR Realtor
from a 540 phone number, Wednesday, December 22, 11:52 AM EST

I can't tell if these are two connected thoughts (one about Taste of Thai, the restaurant, and the other about Debbie Fleming, the realtor), or, alternatively, whether this is a text FROM Debbie Fleming, and that is her sig line. Here's the scoop on Debbie Fleming. Does this clarify anything? Does it say "loves Thai food" on her website anywhere?
is it cioppino?
from a 775 phone number, Monday, December 20, 11:04 PM EST

In case you, like me, did not know what cioppino is, here is the Wikipedia definition. It's a fish stew developed in the late 1800s. Huh.
Can u pick up bread at clements on ur way back? I can tell u which loaf.

One sign that you’re in an over-controlling relationship is when your spouse doesn’t even grant you the free will to choose which loaf of bread to buy from Clement’s.

Is Leila really into our nation’s president, or, alternatively, is her last name actually Barackman?
Ahhh just got my ringgggggg
from an 860 phone number, Friday, December 24, 10:39 PM EST

Engagements are so exciting. Does the Leila Texts support picture messaging? I want to see a photo! As long as it is not a blood diamond, of course, as we are all socially conscious here on this blog.

I know a girl (Sarah, of the Forever Young Adult blog) who is really into adding “pants” on to the end of everything. If this isn’t a text from Sarah, then it must be a text from her soul mate.

Didnot make it i am so sad.
from a 770 phone number, Tuesday, December 21, 406 PM EST

This seemed like a lot of strong emotions on the part of Leila’s mom, so I texted her back to say that Leila hadn’t received her messages, and that she should re-send them by pulling Leila’s name out of her contacts list.

Sorry not sure how.
from a 770 phone number, Tuesday, December 21, 5:18 PM EST

So then I gave up. If I hadn’t been at work, I might have called her and walked her through it, but as it was, I just didn’t have it in me.
FWD: Scroll down and see Santa’s penis.

-Act your freakin age. Theres no Santa. You just wanted to see a penis !!! ☺

from a 701 phone number, Tuesday, December 21, 10:51 AM EST

For those of you who feel disappointed that the Leila Texts does not today include a photo of Santa’s penis, I suggest that you visit my cousin’s company's website, www.pornaments.com. They sell Christmas tree ornaments called “pornaments.” I think you can see where this is going.

So what do your cousins do?

Hey Leila. Where did u get that white dress from that u wore @ MIP?
from a 941 phone number, Wednesday, December 15, 7:32 PM EST

All I'm turning up for "MIP" is "Minor in Possession." Presumably 941 is not asking Leila where she bought that white dress that she wore to her court hearing after having been caught with alcohol.

from a 661 phone number, Sunday, December 19, 12:35 PM EST

Call me old-fashioned, but before I sign a lease with someone, I at least want to know the address of the apartment, or see a photo of it, or, I don't know, something. But, then, I am no a very spontaneous individual.

from an 818 phone number, Sunday, December 19, 11:04 PM EST

818, I am now going to explain to you the difference between cool people and uncool people. Listen closely. It's not that humiliating things never happen to cool people. They do. (Albeit less frequently.) The difference is that cool people are able to play them off. They're like, "Ha, ha, whatever," and they toss their hair and change the subject. Uncool people say things like, "Ugh, now you're going to tell Kelsey about this embarrassing thing that happened to me, and then you will never come over again, because you hate me now!" You can avoid this fate, 818. I believe in you.

So these are two totally unconnected text messages, from two texters who do not know each other, to two different Leilas. But if only we could put them in touch! They would have an incredibly happy back-and-forth of sharing children's photos, and no Leilas would have to be involved.

I'm dubious as to whether this is a real Leila Text. Something seems off about it. Regardless, here is my advice to you, 770 (and what I am positive Leila would say, too, if she ever received this message from you): You "think" you are "maybe" in love with him? Honey, before you "work up the courage to say so," you best be DAMN SURE. Because what is the point of destroying your perfectly good friendship/undermining his relationship with your best friend/getting in trouble with the law if you only THINK he's worth it?

Do you want to go to church and then out to dinner? or, do you have other plans for tonight?
from a 515 phone number, Saturday, November 20, 12:57 PM EST

We plan to be home around 4:30. why don’t you do your shopping and be ready to go to church at that time.
from a 515 phone number, Saturday, November 20, 1:22 PM EST

I didn't know Saturday night was a popular time to go to church. What branch of Christianity is that?

"Not still no no you have to anger yourself I did not say that you went to the house -this ontrol to desire nothing more xq I said to him already something arriving at the house."

I really, really need to work on my Spanish idioms.
B Guria esquecemos do remedio eita!!!
from a 774 phone number, Friday, November 19, 5:27 PM EST

Babelfish says, "B Guria we forget it eita remedy!!!" So, that sounds bad.

DISNEYLAND! I am so jealous of Erin right now. I knew I should have learned to play oboe or something.

Are we doin trivia tonight at beachclub?
from a 412 phone number, Wednesday, November 17, 1:17 PM EST

Here's all the deets on Wednesday night trivia at the Beach Club, if you want to challenge Leila and 412: http://www.facebook.com/teamtriviaplus
Hi leila i miss you a lot i will call you soon lots of kisses lots of hugs elle says hi and gives lots of kisses and lots of hugs ron says hi
from a 703 phone number, Tuesday, November 16, 10:32 PM EST

You can tell that 703 and Elle are chicks, because they're both saying hi and sending Leila lots of kisses and hugs, whereas Ron is a MAN, and that's why he just says hi, no kisses or hugs. Men don't show their emotion like that. It makes them feel too vulnerable.
Hi r u in vegas... If so r u broke yet hahaha
from an 860 phone number, Tuesday, November 16, 7:45 PM EST

No, bitch, I am a master at the craps table. What, are you broke yet? Is your mom broke yet?

from a 310 phone number, Monday, November 15, 3:28 AM EST

Sometimes I get annoyed when I receive text messages at 3:30am, but this one is 100% legitimate.

What are we practicing, though? Are we practicing instruments, public speaking, or kissing?
Hey u up
@[[?$90N from a 978 phone number, Sunday, November 14, 9:22 AM EST Pretty sure this text is from a girl named Allison. Don't you think? Doh, I'm a day late, but Happy Anniversary to you! from a 757 phone number, Sunday, November 14, 6:07 PM EST This seems somehow like an appropriate text for the 2,001st post in this blog. ## Saturday, November 13, 2010 is my best friend heyyyy bella its leilaa ur my best frienddd everrrr and so is livvyy and thats probebly what i have a picture of from a 401 phone number, Saturday, November 13, 8:53 AM EST Believe it or not, this is my 2,000th posting to the Leila Texts blog. Honest to God. I have spent nearly three and half years of my life transcribing misdirected text messages, and now I have a collection of 2,000 of them. This is a major milestone. I think we can safely say that no one else, ever, has compiled more text messages intended for strangers named Leila. In the spirit of this moment in Leila Text history, I'm glad to be able to share this text message from 401. It is all about friendship, the true foundation for the Leila Texts. (Except for the ones that say, "Leila i hate u.") If you have some spare time, take a look through the 2,000 archived posts. No two are exactly alike. (Text messages are like snowflakes, apparently.) And if you've run out of Leila Texts to read, you can always read my book. It's not about text messages, but you still might like it: http://www.amazon.com/Mostly-Good-Girls-Leila-Sales/dp/1442406798 phone Cant we just do the sleep over again another time {NEVER SAY NEVER} From a 615 phone number, Saturday, November 13, 10:19 AM EST No, we can't. Obviously, when Leila said she "couldn't sleep over," 615 heard her saying "tonight." But what she really meant was "forever, because you snore." You want to go to dinner with ben and vivian? ben just text me from a 203 phone number, Saturday, November 13, 7:59 PM EST Oh, Ben and Vivian are such a charming couple. We really ought to go on more double-dates with them. What a lark! HEY WAZ UP AND UR DEAD!!!! ;) Maddy (; from a 760 phone number, Saturday, November 13, 1:08 AM EST The combination of the death threat and the smiley faces makes me suspect that Maddy is living out her own real-life version of American Psycho. we are in pigeon forge. just past the clarion at light from a 770 phone number, Friday, November 12, 5:46 PM EST where are you from a 770 phone number, Friday, November 12, 5:46 PM EST This is not the first time 770 has been to Pigeon Forge. I still don't know why she keeps going there. Someone who seems to be affiliated with Pigeon Forge commented on the last Leila Text that mentioned it but somehow that didn't really clarify things for me. Do you have a party lined up? from a 443 phone number, Thursday, November 11, 8:32 PM EST Dude, have you MET me? I'm almost offended that you'd even feel like you have to ask. Moms being stobern and maen from a 781 phone number, Wednesday, November 10, 4:27 PM EST Somehow, with that spelling, this sounds way worse than if Mom were being just stubborn and mean. Hey.i dont think we should go out anymore.we dont talk or hang out.srry can we still be friend. from a 201 phone number, Tuesday, November 9, 5:11 PM EST Goddamn I love this text. This is all of middle school summed up into 160 characters. Yes, 201. We can still be friend, provided that doesn't mean we have to start talking or hanging out. By the way, if you're wondering whether I replied to this person so that he knows he effectively broke up with Leila: No. I did not. I hate you >.< from a 781 phone number, Tuesday, November 9, 3:39 PM EST Being a Leila means having a community of constantly supportive friends. i just got the e-mail confirming Ash's enrollment in PAA :-) from a 619 phone number, Monday, November 8, 6:53 PM EST I assume Ash has been enrolled in the Population Association of America. Or maybe in Polyacryclic Acid. Happy, Happy Birthday to you. I hope you have a great day. Love you from an 850 phone number, Monday, November 8, 7:45 AM EST graham HAPPY birthday Leila! Greetngs from Virginia Beach! Love you! from a 509 phone number, Wednesday, November 10, 10:47 PM EST So whats up there Birthday Girl? Tmrrw is the BIG day huh? Another year older? LMBO its hell gettn old!!! from a 602 phone number, Saturday, November 13, 6:40 PM EST This has been a big week for birthdays. Thank you all for your kind wishes, but, alas, my birthday is actually in April. U know that boy from jump n jamin. well i dreamed about him for some reason .promis me u can keep this a secret. from a 951 phone number, Sunday, November 7, 12:46 PM EST No, I'm sorry, I cannot promise I can keep this a secret. I poked around the Jump n'Jammin website a bit, and I didn't immediately see any hot boys. But obviously they are out there. Just got your message. just got home from my brothers. Lew and i stopped at the outlets. ask me if i bought a new red coach bag. Yes i did. Me bad. from a 916 phone number, Saturday, November 6, 7:58 PM EST You're right, 916. You ARE bad. I condemn you and your capitalist ways. ## Thursday, November 4, 2010 Teacher stands: r there any idiots in here if so plz stand (student stands) t: y do u think u r an idiot s: i dont i just dont want u standing by urself from a 518 phone number, Tuesday, November 2, 3:11 PM EST See, that's what an LOL text looks like. Live and learn, 225. Have fun in Denver. text me when u get bored. Don't spend to much money at JJills. from a 916 phone number, Sunday, October 31, 8:58 PM EST Is it cold? from a 916 phone number, Monday, November 1, 9:58 PM EST Wake up and get to class! from a 916 phone number, Tuesday, November 2, 9:15 AM EST I don't honestly know that I've ever spent any money at J.Jill, let alone too much money. Hope you guys had all the pizza you wanted. Casper ate it from a 248 phone number, Saturday, October 30, 10:11 PM EST God damn it, Casper, I was saving that for lunch tomorrow. Hello,how are yu,and wuna dayte me,and are a nudyst,lyke I am,and what du yu phor a lyvyn'?And it's me,Alexis Hendrix-Buford from a 719 phone number, Saturday, October 30, 3:08 PM EST Um, apparently this is like a common text message? In all my years of Leila Texts, I have never seen anything quite like this. Good to know I can still be surprised, I guess. Heey tell mom to answer her phoneee from a 225 phone number, Saturday, October 30, 12:43 PM EST I mean text bacck not answer lol from a 225 phone number, Saturday, October 30, 12:43 PM EST I guess I'm just not laughing out loud at the fact that 225 accidentally said "answer" instead of "text back." Maybe I don't have a good sense of humor or something, but it's just not doing it for me, as a stand-up routine. Im gonna be so close to u love from a 619 phone number, Friday, October 29, 8"03 PM EST Ew. P and s is on your email. I changed the last paragraph as discussed. Call me questions. Have a good weekend. from a 617 phone number, Friday, October 29, 7:59 PM EST "I didn't only add the 'P' part of your P.S. I also added the 'S' part. You're welcome." Why? ~Forever & Always ~ from an 803 phone number, Friday, October 29, 5:59 PM EST This is such a funny coincidence because my sig line, too, sounds like a misappropriation of a Donna Lewis song title. Is Still Going To The BathroomWa leila is still gooing to the bathroom mommy is waiting for leilaa to finish.then she wioll change hr ommediately from a 917 phone number, Friday, October 29, 1:23 PM EST My name appears twice in this text message, but in neither instance do I understand why. I love my child! from an 850 phone number, Friday, October 29, 11:38 AM EST It's unsolicited text messages like this that give the mommy community a bad rap. did you see what your sister wrote on facebook i want to kill her i am so mad what is wrong with her1 from a 978 phone number, Thursday, October 28, 7:57 PM EST Better question: 978, why should Leila be held responsible for her sister's facebook failings? Leila is not her sister's keeper! Go to http:\\hcgdietinfo.com from an 805 phone number, Thursday, October 28, 3:54 PM EST According to this website: "hCG Dieters lose an average of 1 to 3 lbs per day while modifying their metabolism and eating habits for long term results." Think about this. Someone out there is losing three pounds EVERY DAY. And that someone could be Leila! Does that seem weird at all? She could have said hello, and it was and ipod lol from an 860 phone number, Wednesday, October 27, 10:26 PM EST Those were words, but, taken as a whole, they seem to have lost their meaning. where canu get contacts...i want them so i can scare mah 3 yr old cuz... DJ from a 254 phone number, Tuesday, October 26, 9"55 PM EST That's a lot of planning to put into scaring a three-year-old, which, in my experience, is not all that hard to do. I assume 254 is looking for creepy contact lenses. You can be way older than three and still be terrified by those.

That is an uncanny number of waffle houses for one street to boast. Come business casual and drive safely from a 312 phone number, Tuesday, October 26, 8:32 AM EST Those two rules can take you far in life. ## Sunday, October 24, 2010 R u going to c justin? Prema from a 740 phone number, Sunday, October 24, 7:17 PM EST Guys! It's Prema! She's BACK! It's been more than four months since we last heard from Prema. We were all missing her, I know. This text message doesn't quite fill us in on where Prema's been since June. But, hey, it's a start. Tell mom that i am mad i waited a longtime 2 c that movie from a 313 phone number, Sunday, October 24, 6:47 PM EST No way am I telling Mom that. You know she always shoots the messenger. If you're mad, then you take it up with the lady of the house. Gud job at da game from an 817 phone number, Friday, October 22, 7:12 PM EST It's true, I scored a touchdown.

I am a great secret-keeper! butt butt butt from a 951 phone number, Monday, October 18, 8:40 PM EST Never let your five-year-old son get a hold of your cell phone. well on my progress report he put my average is under a 55 when i been doin my work and have least a 85! ("|Vi?S??it|") from a 315 phone number, Saturday, October 16, 4:19 PM EST There's a mega-big difference between 55 and 85. One is failing, one is not. Is Leila failing? Or not? ## Friday, October 15, 2010 Could u send me another adorable pic? from a 406 phone number, Sunday, October 3, 12:04 AM EST What am I, your own personal cuteoverload.com?

Hey, Beeyotch, did you know Carla is coming to NYC in May? Road Trip with a BRIT baby! You in? from a 512 phone number, Thursday, October 14, 5:29 PM EST I don't know, will we have to drive on the wrong side of the road? i discovered your leila text blog when i was googling my sister named leila. what is even funnier is i found a recent text written from my stepmom from a 908 phone number, Wednesday, October 13, 8:40 PM EST Obviously this is not a Leila Text in the technical sense, since it's not a misdirected text message. It reached me just fine. Nonetheless, I'm sharing it here, because this is so cool! I love when this happens. And then people can finally explain to us what their texts mean! Like 908 told me that this one was about booking motel rooms for his sister Leila's wedding. So now we know! I also love that 908 got in touch with me via text message. That brings it all full-circle. Family, who fed zorro? christian's lunch box is here? oxm from a 978 phone number, Wednesday, October 13, 10:01 AM EST I assume Zorro is a dog, and the parent of this household is asking who fed him. And also, who fed Christian, since his lunch box is here. (Christian is presumably not a dog, though I guess he could be.) Ur a brat from a 717 phone number, Tuesday, October 2, 8:28 AM EST Nuh-uh.

I told jen i would see if we had blue leggings, we do. If i wait for the sale next week they may be gone, with my discount they would be 43 dollars. from a 614 phone number, Wednesday, October 6, 1:37 PM EST I cannot conceive of a store where leggings cost$43 with an employee discount. That means they probably retail for like $90. I love leggings, but honestly. What store do we think 614 works for? Due date May 2. She is 9 weeks now. We have a pic and heard the heart beat. from an 865 phone number, Wednesday, October 6, 1:18 PM EST Not to be as superstitious as I am, but aren't you not supposed to tell people (including the entire internet) until the second trimester? holy shit girl, it is ur birthday? what does that make u? 37? u kno, u only get sexier with age ! lub u! from a 970 phone number, Tuesday, October 5, 9:36 PM EST This is the first time in my life anyone has ever told me, even inadvertently, that I "only get sexier with age."

Mar is their only coworker who knows about it. Leila and her secret bf called out “sick” so they could spend a romantic day together.

Not unless Mar opens her big mouth, that is… HAM!!!!!! from a 951 phone number, Saturday, October 2, 4:47 PM EST Ham is the new bacon, apparently. oct 16….yard sale from an 864 phone number, Saturday, October 2, 1:55 PM EST That’s this weekend, folks!

Crazy shit going on this week! from a 706 phone number, Tuesday, September 28, 11:54 AM EST CRAZY SHIT. Stacey aint going. Joni is going. It's nearly impossible to wrap your mind around. HAPPY 18TH BIRTHDAY from a 214 phone number, Tuesday, September 28, 1:07 AM EST Leila spent most of the day smoking cigarettes and running from strip club to strip club.

Should i order a sandwich for you and Chelsea? from a 248 phone number, Saturday, September 25, 5:41 PM EST This text message confused me a great deal because the protagonist in the book that I'm writing is also named Chelsea. So when I got this text, I was like, "No, Chelsea doesn't need a sandwich because she just ate dinner.... I mean, Chelsea doesn't need a sandwich because she is a figment of my imagination." hey leila i put UN down on my resume with your number and said i had been working for a little over a year doing staging and art direction from a 619 phone number, Friday, September 24, 11:15 AM EST So let me see if I've got this straight: If Leila's potential future employer calls me to check out her references, I am supposed to tell him that I am a supervisor at the United Nations, for which Leila had been doing staging and art direction for a little over a year? Okay. I can do it. I'm not sure it will "sound believable," but I'll do it. did i sound like a knucklehead? antibiotics, nyquil, perkadin (for my knee?) from a 248 phone number, Tuesday, September 21, 10:17 PM EST Yeah, bro, you sounded high our of your mind.

Maybe Leila was just busy, okay, 425?!? Or maybe she just didn't get your text at all. Stop being so overprotective, jeez. Leila, in your professional opinion, hlow long do drugs like marijuana and lsd take to clear the system for a urine test? Do diet and exercise help? from a 218 phone number, Thursday, September 23, 10:59 PM EST Sometimes the Leila Texts require that I provide information that, unfortunately, I just don't have at my fingertips. My guess here would be that marijuana and LSD clear the system at different rates, and that both take a few weeks to make you clean for a urine test, and that diet and exercise may help, but not significantly. In short, I would guess that 218 is screwed for whatever drug screening she has to take. But I open this up to you, dear readers. In your professional opinion, how long would this take? Hypothetically, of course.

Really? What does a U.S. boy do, then? Watch baseball and drink a Budweiser, maybe? Does he drive a Ford and look at the Grand Canyon while wearing Converse?

This is weaird
from a 313 phone number, Sunday, October 3, 10:59 AM EST

Sometimes adults are shocked by how many text messages teenagers send in the course of a month. I don't know why. If they can average four texts in five minutes, then 10,000 in one month should not be such a stretch.

Could there be a sadder statement? “I love your mom. Though she don’t love me.” What could be worse than urequited love (with Leila’s mother)?
Sorry for drunk texting not sure why i was angry last night. Have a great saturday!

from a 651 phone number, Tuesday, September 7, 3:26 PM EST

I am stymied. This isn't French, other than the "merci." A few words in here are German, but not that many. None of it is Portuguese. What IS this?

In case you ever wondered what it means to be the recipient of the Leila Texts, it basically means that I spend a lot of my life on Babelfish.
Leila its Cassidy go on youtube and type in tails of adventure slideshow. i think youll like it!

Here is what you find when you type in "tails of adventure slideshow." It is more or less exactly what I would be doing right now, if I were 12 years old.
hey girl wtf
from a 770 phone number, Monday, September 6, 4:10 PM EST

This calls to mind a classic text message invented many years ago by me and my best friend Allie. Some boy had acted toward me in a way that was totally baffling, and we determined that I should send him a text that said, simply, "wtf i hate you." I never did it, but only because I was scared, not because he didn't deserve it. I'm glad to see someone out there (770) has the balls to say what I never could. Sort of.
Boys suck. they dont listen or care. jeff is out of town weekend of 17th of sept i will be by myself.

Boys do suck, that is true. But going out of town for a week is not the primary reason why.

Yes. Michaela, it is sundown to sundown. 4:42 PM does not sundown make. This is true of all Jewish holidays, so best to just learn it now.

Remember when the mall used to be a super-cool place and you were always arranging to meet your friends there? That was a great social scene.
Hi dear i called afsaneh twice there was no answer i left message each time do you think i cal her again?
from a 409 phone number, Wednesday, September 1, 6:19 PM EST

No, I think you can text or email her, but I think at this point you've done the phone thing to death. Some people just don't check voicemail. Afsaneh may be one of them.

I have to wonder what 757's relationship is to Leila that she felt compelled to share this with her. Maybe Leila is really interested in rotten food?

from a 302 phone number, Tuesday, August 31, 7:26 AM EST

As you are likely aware if you read this blog a lot, I hate it when people text Leilas to say simply "whats up." I guess it's a little better when they throw in some spice and say "Wats kraka-lackn." A LITTLE better.
Maman joon i am testing my new fon tell me if u got my mssge
from a 310 phone number, Tuesday, August 31, 1:17 PM EST

Considering the number of misspellings in this text, I guess it's most likely that 310 is trying to say "Mama and Joon." But what I prefer to believe is that 310 is French, and he calls his mother maman. Is that so much to hope for?
poop! yay!
from a 610 phone number, Tuesday, August 31, 7:13 PM EST

The Leila Texts started going downhill around the same time that they started giving cell phones to five year olds.
