I can't copy and paste all the photos, so I'll have to do a hugely illegal thing and tell you all to just click the link. It's hilarious.
Man mistakenly texts wrong number, Paddy Power live tweets conversation

It all started innocently enough.
WE CAN‘T help but feel for a man who has been dubbed â€œWrong Number Steveâ€ after sending romantic texts to â€” you guessed it â€” the wrong number.
Poor Steve texted someone he thought was a girl, Jess, whom he met at a bar recently in Dublin, Ireland.
But in a cruel twist of fate, he mistakenly sent the texts to the administrator of a betting agency‘s Twitter account.
Instead of replying â€œwrong numberâ€, @PaddyPower decided to play along, asking Twitter users to join in and suggest responses using the hashtag #PPtexts.
What began as a practical joke soon turned into a cringe-worthy string of texts that had the Twittersphere cheering on â€œWrong Number Steveâ€. Perhaps even crushing on. Just a little.
We‘ve got no idea if this is just an elaborate publicity stunt by the agency or if indeed poor Steve is in fact a legitimate gentleman, but we still think it makes for hilarious reading.
So give us a shout out Steve, we‘d love to hear from you.
