A 40-year-old woman has slammed a delivery man who mistakenly sent her a message about the delivery of a hot tub.
Tracey Binnie from East Lothian received a message from the man asking when they could deliver the hot tub. He then apologized and explained that the text was for another person.
The mother-of-one found the funny side of the situation and joked that the stranger could still deliver the spa device ‘if he wanted.’
For some reason, the delivery man mistook the joke as an invitation and said he would be expecting Binnie to jump in with him.
“It was completely unexpected and a complete shock to get a message like that, but also just the nerve of the guy to turn around and say that,” Binnie said.
“I’m assuming he was selling his hot tub as the first text was along the lines of ‘alright mate, when’s a good time to drop the hot tub off?’ – it was just a completely normal text.
“As a joke I texted him back and was like ‘wrong number, but you can send around the hot tub anyway if you want’, and that’s when it started to get a little bit creepy.
“I half expected him to reply and say ‘oh, sorry about that’ and just have a bit of a giggle about it, which is fair enough.
“I didn’t expect to have a response like that, but in hindsight I wonder if it was crosswires but no my take on it was that it was a joke, but he turned it into something ever so slightly different.”
Binnie shared the conversation on Twitter in a bid to raise awareness of the sexism many women experience on a regular basis.
