Woman sent MIDDLE FINGER emoji to Council (by accident)
The social media message exchange between a UK council social media officer and a resident has gone viral, with thousands of people sharing a conversation just too funny to miss out on.
In the hilarious Twitter exchange a confused Brenda M Boyd gave the council the middle finger by accident on April 3 after asking whether they had resumed the garbage bin collections.
After the council answered that their services had been resumed, by mistake, Brenda sent out an emoji of a hand showing the stinky finger.
In truth, she wanted to send a thumbs-up sign and was ashamed and shocked when she found out what she actually sent.
The council replied by saying:
“Just checking Brenda… Is that the emoji you wanted to send?”
Brenda then said:
“It was meant to be a thumbs up, but I may have the wrong glasses on – sorry if it was offensive.”
She continued saying:
“Oh my goodness I’ve just had another proper look – really sorry.”
Funnily enough, the person behind the computer was not offended by Brenda’s emoji – quite the opposite in fact:
“Seriously Brenda don’t worry about it. You’ve brought tears to my eyes. After a weird couple of weeks, it’s good to laugh.”
The hilarious conversation has been seen thousands of times and here is how people around the world reacted:
“Don’t mess with Brenda, particularly when she’s got the wrong glasses on,” one person said.
Another person wrote:
“Sure Brenda, blame the glasses. :D”
A third Twitter user said:
“Yeah…. That emoji was close to hand as it were…”
“Hahahhaha ahaha Just thinking of how I would have handled it and no way I would have asked was that the right emoji just would have sat starring with tears in my eyes Face with tears of joy”
A Facebook user said:
“Omg i had to widen the screen. I was looking for the aubergine till i spotted the middle finger lol. That is something i would do” 🤣🤣🤣
BBC’s Breakfast host Dan Walker also shared it around and said on his Instagram page:
“This has made me howl with laughter”
