Recently, I interviewed a person who was being advised of their rights in a family law matter. It turns out that they sent multiple, repeated texts messages over a several hour period while under the influence. Some were funny, some incoherent, some to the intended recipients and a few that were not. It was the ones that were not to the intended recipients that caused the problem.
A text message sent is a message that cannot be recalled.
