Darn You to Heck Auto Correct!

Haha.

Sometimes I think the people who designed auto correct made it do weird things just to get a laugh.

It couldn’t have had anything to do with my fat thumbs.

Darn you to heck, auto correct.

PS. Much love to my older sister Tomi Ann who has been such a support through all of this.

When my boyfriend and I first started dating, we were talking about going out to a movie. He was making suggestions and asking me if I was interested in different ones. He suggested one that I wanted to see.. And this is what autocorrect said in response "yay! I'm super inbreeded, let's go see that one!" A year later I still have yet to live that one down....

I texted my sister on Thanksgiving when she & her bf were waiting for a 10pm sale to start & accidentally sent "How's the lube standing?" Mot sure if it was auto-correct or fat fingers or a combination. LOL

My sister and I were texting about her husband's family and she was telling me that they weren't doing gifts this year because things were tight for his parents. I told her that she should get them a gift anyway, because it sounds like they need it. She proceeded to tell me that his dad had just bought an iPad. My intended response was, "That why things are tight?" But good old auto-correct comes along and changed it to, "That why THONGS are tight?" I didn't notice it and she didn't bring light to it, but then I reread what I had put and died laughing.

I was texting my sister about my daughter's birthday cupcakes.  I wrote something about using the "leftover batter," and it changed it to "ghetto batter."  Not as funny as yours or most of the other commenters' autocorrect mishaps, but my sister and I still giggle about it.

Harriet--my cat--is thinking that lice are human fleas! Funny, Dan! Now I know why I'm grateful, in the world of computers, for being good at spelling! Too bad I can't survive without a calculator, but I digress...all I could see was those bottles of lice treatments and you washing everything in sight with it...but I don't know if it works on electronics...:-D Make it a great day!

Every time I try to write a letter that starts with p, out converts it to the bad p word. (5 words, ends in y). Funny one though is my email address. Auto corrects jesscake into headcase. That one is kind of legit though. I operate a cake business from home with a 3 and 1 year old...so it kind of fits. Lol.

I have to go back to the time before texts to have an auto-correct story. Word and email spellcheck used to always try to change my co-worker's last name from 'Hittle', to 'Hitler'. It rarely got past me, but occasionally...fortunately, she was used to it.

HAHAHAHA!!  I sent one to my son a couple days ago for his birthday asking him when he wanted to go out for birthday dinner and caca.  I meant cake.  I know they say that when it autocorrects to a weird word, it's because you've used that word.  I have never in my life used the word 'caca,' much less sent it in a text to someone.  Until now.

Well, the way my Japanese mom used to say Rice when she didn't have her dentures in sounded like "lice" too. LOL!

I texted a friend last month that I was having a "nostalgic kind of day" but I sent her "I'm having a nice dog dick" kind of day.  I use the voice to text feature a lot.  Sometimes to my own demise!

My female friend meant to text her younger male co-worker "Let's rock this thing!" and instead texted "Let's rock this THONG!"  Can you say cougar? Which is what he immediately thought she was!

My grandmother's husband is named Hib. When I type it on my phone, it autocorrects to HIV! How is HIV is embarrassing to send to your grandmother!

the new waitress texted that she '...got sick last night...' only it was not the 's' that was used....go one letter over...as a gay guy that seems a perfectly reasonable excuse to be late to work to me. occasionally anyway.

I went to type. "Good morning Gorgeous!" to my boyfriend. Before I could notice it, I had sent, "Good morning go orgies!"

Autocorrect has embarrassed me a couple of times! I swear I have never typed some of the words that it auto-corrects to. I try to type Saturday and it comes out as "STD's". Eeeek! Good for a laugh, tho.

May the lice be with you. LOL Still not as good as my manifest dysentery on a history test or an entire class writing about Navel warfare.

@SocialButterfly That might not have been autocorrect. The 'i' and the 'o' are right next the each other. Whoops!

@Cynthia Balzomo You gotta watch those navels, man.  When they get to grumbling... things tend to go south, quickly, from there.

@ImpishKitten Ha ha ! My 2 left hands are taking care of that for me, that and the fact that I vaccumed the keyboard and sucked up 2 keys, and the letter "a" keeps getting stuck (kiddies eating in front of the computer) sigh ! ;)
