Woman Accidentally Text Her Hermes Driver Instead Of Her Gynaecologist
So spare a thought for one woman who shared her gynaecological information with her delivery driver by accident.
Jessica Courtney says she was suffering from 'baby brain' when she quickly tapped a message concerning post-partum bleeding following the birth of son Jenson Carter, intending to send it off to her health advisor.
Instead, the full time mum was left mortified when she received a reply from her Hermes delivery driver Stuart who suggested she see her GP if she was worried.
Thankfully, the 22-year-old was pleasantly surprised to receive a "nice and professional" response from Stuart.
"When I picked up my phone and realised what it said and who it was from I was absolutely mortified," the Bognor Regis-based mum said.
"I literally just wanted to die, poor old Stuart. I couldn't believe I'd done it, I call it baby brain.
"I was having an issue with after-birth spotting that then got heavier.
"I decided to drop my health visitor a text about it because I wanted to know if there was something wrong or if I was having my first period after the baby.
"I didn't save her number in my phone and clicked on what I thought was her's, but it turned out to be Stuart who had texted me about a late parcel delivery."

Jessica's text reads: "Heya just a question, I've been spotting still since having the baby but it's gotten heavier the past two days, could it be a period already or should I be worried? Xx"
Stuart replied: "I'm not a doctor. I'm Stuart, your hermes delivery driver. If you're worried pop into the pharmacy or see your GP."
Jessica's response reads: "OMG THAT'S SO EMBARRASSING. Sorry lol."
Stuart replied: "It's safe to say that is the first time anyone has asked me that question!"
Stuart Mitchell, 43, who now works as a chef, replied to Jessica's text after he received it while at home on January 11th last year.
"I'm not qualified to dispense medical advice," he said.
"It seemed obvious she was worried about it and I didn't want to leave her hanging, I thought I'd better let her know somehow and that was the best way I could think to do it.
"I knew it wasn't a joke as women don't send those messages to any old Tom, Dick or Harry do they?
"That's why I thought I should get back to her and let her know in the nicest possible way because, of course, it's a personal issue.
"I just had to tell her I wasn't her doctor, it's as simple as that."
Yep, this is up there with the most embarrassing. We feel for you, Jessica.
