Urban Word Wednesday: Freudian Click

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:

  1. 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!
  2. 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!
  3. I wanted to open Firefox, but I was thinking of that blog post I wrote and accidentally opened Word instead. Another Freudian Click!

True Story:

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?!?!?!

Got an embarrassing or funny Freudian Click story? Come on…make me feel better about myself and share the wealth…



  1. Jillian Dodd - Glitter, Bliss and Perfect Chaos says:

    Very funny. I’m sure your husband thought that was hilarious. You know how men like bathroom things.

  2. That was too funny. I’ve never actually done a ‘freudian click’ but I’ve seen the aftermath a couple of times.

    The text story is a classic, though! There but for the grace of God go I!

  3. Tee-hee. Guilty of #1 over here end of last year. It was the early morning hours, I was medicated on pain med and foggy texting without my glasses. The babble text about my feelings, lack of support and needs went accidentally to an ex vs. current guy. Ex never responded…(gah).

  4. Oh my. LOL. I have done plenty of things to embarass myself but surprisingly I have never had a Freudian click. I’m certain now that I know what it is, I’ll have one soon.

    You will be the first person I tell. LOL!

  5. Haven’t had a Freudian TEXT click but have experienced some voicemail and low phone battery disasters.

    Most notable, talking with the guy who’s now my husband and discussing (in very vague terms) the idea of living together. We’d only been dating maybe three months so this was a “feel each other out about the concept talk.” No sooner do I say, “If I’m good enough to live with I’m good enough to marry,” when my phone DIES. I had to live with those famous last words for 4 hours till I could get back to a charger.

    Moral of the story: NEVER leave your car charger at home!

    • ROFL!!!! Riot…I can totally picture and feel the anxiety THAT must have caused. And then the endless wait to get to a charger. Sounds like it turned out for the best though. LOL!! Great story Jenny…thanks for stopping by and sharing!

  6. Oh Natalie! John and I had a great giggle over your Freudian Click story! Thanks so much for sharing! Would so love to see your face when you realized what you did and the face of the person who actually got the text! 🙂 LOL!

  7. oh that’s funny! I haven’t had that happen….yet! But it’s something that I’m kind of paranoid about so I’m always triple checking before i hit send.
    btw, OMG, love, love, love the new blog design! It’s gorgeous! the site looks great – congrats. 🙂

  8. Oh, the Freudian Click, that’s so funny. I love your urban word Wednesday.

    Yeah, I’ve had a few FC’s, but the best one was when we were in Scotland and I kept calling my husband, but he wouldn’t pick up. Finally I texted him, ‘hey dumbass, why won’t you take my call?’ I get a text back saying, ‘Because I don’t know who the f*** you are!’

    I was one digit off of the number. Oops. My husband, of course, thought it was hysterical and would text that phrase to me every so often. Hey dumbass, what are you doing today? So not funny.

  9. How funny! I’ve never heard of Freudian Clicks, but had a friend who sent this doozy.

    Friend to Husband: You’ll never guess what I’m not wearing.

    Friend’s Boss: Ann, this message is inappropriate.

    Friend: OMG! It’s not what you think. I just got my leg brace off!

    Friend’s Boss: Maybe we should continue this conversation in the HR office.

    Friend: That won’t be necessary. Sorry.

    Friend to Husband: S**t! You’ll never believe what just happened. Mark is a *#$!

    Friend’s Boss (Mark): Still not appropriate.

    I don’t think my friend made eye contact with Mark for months. LOL.

    You and Hubby are the funniest people I know!!!! LOL
