One mum has learned the hard way about handing over her iPhone to the kids.

Lauren Brown shared her funny story on LinkedIn about how her daughter had unintentionally hindered her career.

“In case you’re wondering how my career is progressing, my daughter asked #Siri to call me ‘Poop Your Pants’ which I didn’t realize until I was copied on an email to a client,” she wrote in the post.

“Let this be a cautionary tale to all you working parents!”

She added that “after the shock wore off” she was able to have a “good laugh” about the joke.

The senior manager included screenshots in her post attracting more than 1,700 likes and over 100 comments from other “working mums” and dads who had their own mishaps after their kids had borrowed their devices.

  • Haha that is tooo funny! Luckily I never had any issues like this.


  • Oh too funny! I have heard of young kids getting on their parents phones and running up massive credit card bill by purchasing things. Also a huge mobile phone bills from kids use.


  • Haha kids are the worst aren’t they! My son managed to disable my phone for 1 year! I had to take it to Apple to get it fixed. Needless to say he’s no longer allowed to touch my phone.


  • What a great story to tell in years to come hahaha


  • Hahaha how embarrassing, but totally funny story to tell for years to come


  • Kids sheesh lol


  • oh that’s so funny and so horrible at the same time


  • Pretty funny, but I don’t understand why people keep giving kids phones to play with.


  • Oopsie! It is kind of funny though!


  • Phones are not toys – it is sensible to not give them to children.


  • Phones shouldn’t be given to young children, this was pretty harmless but it could have been worse.


  • Oh dear I guess it could have been worse and at least she can laugh about it.


  • I’m not keen to give my kids my phone at all.


  • I don’t think it’s a good idea to give your child your phone. Bad things can happen.


  • I only give my kids my phone when I absolutely need complete concentration, otherwise they never touch it
