Texting Error

At Riverside, Brother A is running the sound controls...  The sound was too soft, so another brother texts him, trying to get him to make the sound louder... 

He texts Brother A:  "LOSER"

Brother A, not knowing what this means, guesses that he must mean "lower", so he lowers the sound even more...  causing his friend to think that Brother A must really be a loser.
