Darn You to Heck, Auto Correct

Haha.

Sometimes auto correct gets you into trouble.

And when that trouble is with the opposite sex, feelings get hurt, purses start swinging, and explanations become both essential and urgent.

Such was the case with this text between me and Kelsey Blue Eyes this afternoon.

Of course, “neediness” was supposed to be “nerdiness.”

And cortex? A bit ironic that auto correct would change the words “auto correct.”

Darn you to heck, auto correct.

PS. Kelsey Blue Eyes is too awesome to ever get mad or swing her purse at my face. For the record.

drunk texting + auto correct = wishing mom a "g-spot new year"  doh!

I also hate auto-correct most of the time, but its cool that you hang with nerdy girls.  (no auto-correct!)

For some reason my mother in law's old phone consistently changed by brother in law's name from Bryan to 'Aswan'. I don't know how Aswan is a more acceptable word in her phone than Bryan, but she never seemed to figure out how to fix it in the 2 years she had the phone. My husband and I have referred to him as such ever since

I personally think it is awesome that she plays Magic, at tournament levels no less. The auto-cortex... Errr... Correct rather, is funny. But Kelsey gets the win here IMO.

My friend was at my birth with me recently and we were up late, so she sent a text to her trainer to cancel their meeting in the morning.  Unfortunately it read  "Sorry, I'm not going to be able to make out in the morning", instead of "Sorry, I'm not going to be able to make it in the morning".  He had a good laugh over that one.

I sent a text to my mom asking if she wanted to go out to get pedis (as in pedicures). It was only after I hit "send" that I realized auto-correct changed that to "penis". My mom didn't really know what to say to  that. Hahaa!

this one time i sent a text to my mother that said "We are good can you breed the kids for me?"  I meant to say "We are good can you BRING the kids for me?"  Awkward!!!!

I have a funny one from earlier too. Not quite as funny but DYAC corrected my daughter Sandrine's name to "syndrome" for someone. ;-) "where does syndrome want to go". ;-)

My son was typing a report for science. He was telling a story from the viewpoint of a rock. His story was suppose to read " It was getting hotter and hotter. I was in the subduction zone" However the computer corrected subduction to seduction.

Ha, awesome. My favorite of all time was from my mom. On my 10 year anniversary, she texted me, "Enjoy the celebacy!" I hope she meant celebration! LOL
