In a world where technology and multi-tasking is the norm, we’ve all been there. As soon as you hit “send” you realize that snarky text about your boss, was sent to your boss, or that “selfie” you sent to your significant other mistakenly went to your mother-in-law. After the initial shock, you text a friend for advice and quickly work to undo the damage.

That is exactly what happened to SAVE MY ASS(TM) (SMA) friends and co-creators Gillian Burke and Wendy Hall.

Whether you send a text intended for someone to the wrong person; you’re dating and not sure how to initiate flirting or banter; you’re in a relationship and want to spice things up; or you receive a text from someone and truly don’t know how to respond, SMA was created to help you.
