Wrong number texts have taken over where the wrong number phone calls left off after we all started carrying smartphones around, and the texts are raising the bar with the addition of photos and increased anonymity.
Now you don't even have to talk to creep someone out, you can just send them a photo like this!

Generally speaking the process is the same- you get a wrong number text, you write back "wrong number bro" and they write back something like "sorry about that".
But every once in a while the person texting you is so persistent they refuse to believe they have the wrong number until you give them some physical proof.
