What was your worst mistake while writing a text, email or letter to someone?

While I don't really know my worst mistake while writing an email, I can recall my very first mistake.
My company had just recently gotten email (yes, I am that old! lol!) and a client sent me an email. His email said he apologized for asking this question but here is his question, blah, blah, blah.
So I responded by starting my email with "You do need to apologize." And then I went on to answer his question.
His response to my response was short and snippy and I thought, well that is odd for him. So I read our email chain and realized I left the word "not" off of my response. My response was supposed to read, "You do NOT need to apologize." Ooopsss, one little word matters.
Hahahaha! I called him right away and we had a good laugh.
I wish I could say twenty years later I do not still make those mistakes but I still do. There is something about me not seeing my mistakes until after I hit submit/send. So in emails, I do not see it even with proofreading before sending and the same for places like here. I proofread and think it is correct, but probably 50% of the time I still have an error. This is why an edit button would be really handy. lol! :)1
Once I had a guy friend, who really just appeared to be my friend although I had a huge crush on him. Well, when we had had a stupid fight I sent him a message saying: tell me when you are back! (Atleast i thought so, but autocorrect had changed it to: tell me when you are my babe! This all was in our language)
Not that bad but not a very nice situation either1
I was texting an ex and told him I would never want to be with him and to leave me alone because I found someone I really care about.
Sent it to the 'then' boyfriend by mistake. Took a loooooooooooooong time explaining that one, but I showed him the messages and he believed me. I'm not with either of them anymore anyway lol.1
One time I tried to text a friend to tell her I was making pitas for dinner, and it got corrected to potassium.0
in turkish to live is "yaşamak" and to lick is "yalamak" and i was texting this guy from work and I've written yalamak (lick) instead of live and things got complicated.

I wrote sex instead of sec.
The X and the C are right next to each other on the keyboard and typos happen but the person I was talking to kept insisting that it was a freudian slip.0
I make very few mistakes in spelling. That hurts me.0
I got dirty with my grandma 😂0
Well i was trying to type just one more sec but i wrognyl typed ust one more sex :D it was funny.0
One time I poured my heart out.
That was foolish of me.0
Once i sent a naked pic to a girl i was seeing (or so i thought). Turned out i sent it to my mom. Things got awkward at home lol0
