I think saying his kid took a photo of him would make it worser X)
Obviously it's something bad or embarrassing. Just face the people in your group as soon as possible and bring it up. Try and laugh it off if possible otherwise give the best reason you can or make the best excuse you can so you can put it behind you otherwise you'll end up worrying what this person or that person thinks.

Technology eh?

If a cat can play games on an iPad ( seen a YouTube clip of it ) then I et they could use whatsapp

wise words

Well, it's the morning after the night before. Thought about it a lot. A LOT. it's done now- no point faffing about on google trying to find a way out of it.. im doomed either way

blimey, the derrty minded on here....just to clarify - it wasn't a nude (sorry to disappoint) ...(that's numpty's forté)

The image wasn't even mine to broadcast.. ..but in haste, i posted it on the group discussion where it REALLY shouldn't have been!!!.. i know they've ALL seen it now cos i can tell they've been on whatsapp like ten mins after i posted..worse still, no one's even commented on it or made a light hearted situation and by the time i came to my senses, it was too late to post a message on there - a follow on from the pic...arrrgghh! they're probably thinkin all sorts. (insert red faced embarrassed emoticon)

good call abt pinning the blame on the cat- i've actually annoyed him by getting his paw and trying to operate the iphone with it, and yep- it's possible! but i wont be going down that route. . . im just gonna keep quiet and hopefully when someone leaves their phone on the table next time we meet- im goin in and hitting that delete button. although, they've all seen it now so the image's in their heads..forever....

ohhhhhhh...im gonna stop thinking abt it now. . which i had done (to a degree) before i got notified of new posts on this thread!.

end of.

On a serious note, I would go and visit everyone it's been sent to and ask for their phones, and then destroy their phones on the spot.

Then buy them all new ones for Christmas.

HTH.
