What To Do If You Accidentally Press The Send Button

We have an overcast sky here and the rain just stopped. It’s so cozy and I don’t want to do anything today. But I got this crazy idea for a blog post and it cannot wait a day more.

Has your thumb ever had its own consciousness and suddenly you pressed send in the middle of typing your replies?

I did. Many times. My thumbs are unreliable. One time, I was writing a blog post using my WordPress app but I accidentally pressed “Publish” instead of that gear icon. Not only that, it got published twice. What the heck is wrong with my thumbs? I had to delete both abominations of a published post and continue writing, grumbling at my thumbs while doing so.

The same goes when I’m commenting on a post and when I hit reply/send midway, I’m like

I want to show an example made by my good blogger friend and inspiring human being Kiya of Flawed Silence.


She didn’t just handle the embarrassing pressed-send-accidentally scenario really well but I could also relate to her a lot. Then a couple of days ago, I found a rather cheeky solution.

Basically, all you have to do is to disconnect your Internet connection while the WordPress app is loading the unfinished comment/post. That’s what I did the last time it happened (which was last Wednesday), it would say error and go back to being a draft. If this happens on your computer, just close the window as fast as you can. Better to start again, I always say.

There you go! This is a completely random and not-so-helpful post but yeah. 😅 

And if you can’t help it and it’s already out there, relax bro. Do what awesome Kiya did and coolly embrace your fingers’ clumsiness. There are far graver mistakes to make. So don’t worry, at the end of the day, you’re still alive. πŸ˜‰

Happy typing, awesome peeps! 💃

  1. Aw thanks Kate for featuring me in yet another amazing post πŸ˜„ honestly that image is most likely my face when I accidentally hit send…and then by the time I disconnect it’s too late. I think the worst is hitting send on whatsapp, instagram or email…seriously there should be a please confirm you want to send button πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    I discovered on my gmail you cam delay sending by up to x seconds you want so you can unsend if you hit send LIFE SAVER

    1. As much as I can, I shall feature thee πŸ˜€ Yes! The development folks at every social media app, email and WordPress should have that confirm button like “Are you sure you’re not going to embarrass yourself?” πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
      Wait what?! I didn’t know that, thanks for sharing!

      Okay wait, I guess you can either just accept it and be like, “Oh crap, that wasn’t for you sorry” or you blame your sibling or mom. That’s what I would do haha XD
