Welcome to Urban Word Wednesday! New words, phrases, and sayings I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life) brought to you by ME…and the Urban Dictionary. You are gonna love these!
Freudian Click: 1. sending an email/text to someone by mistake. 2.To accidentally send an angry or rude e-mail/text that says what you really think about a person. 3. To open a hyperlink or computer program you were not intending on opening in the first place.
Attractive cousin of the freudian slip.
Examples Of Use:
- “SHIT! A second after I hit “send” I realized that I made a Freudian Click and emailed a love note to my ex instead of my boyfriend. So embarrassing!“
- “Dear Kim, you are a two-faced bitch. I can’t believe you told Mary that I said she needed to lose 30 pounds. Like YOU are one to talk fat-ass!!!“
Natalie: “ohhhh shit…I was just venting…I didn’t mean to send that! Damn, another Freudian Click!“
- “I wanted to open Firefox, but I was thinking of that blog post I wrote and accidentally opened Word instead. Another Freudian Click!“
A few months ago, hubby and I discovered text messaging and…I gotta say…we went a little crazy; trying to out-text (is that even a word???) each other from the most unusual places.
So….hubby picks me up for lunch and I have an evil grin from ear-to-ear.
Hubby: What…what did you do???
Me: Didn’t you get my text? hain hain!
He stops and checks his phone.
Hubby: No…I don’t have any text. Why?
Me: Shut up!
My face turned white!
I yank out my phone and sure enough, turns out I sent this text:
“Guess what…I am taking a shit while writing this text message…LOL”
to some stranger. Talk about a Freudian Click!
Odd…the person never replied?!?!?!
