Darn you Auto Correct! Real life moments
« on: December 13, 2011, 01:04:58 AM »
Anyone ever had a real life darn you auto correct moment?

I had one recently.  BF was on his way over for the weekend and I sent him, I'll say slightly naughty text message.  He responded with "I can't wait to get a hold of you with my granny hands".  I laughed and sent back "Ummm? Granny hands? not my thing sweetie".  Moments later I got "Darn auto correct! Grabby, I meant grabby hands!"

Pedis=penis is probably the most common darn you autocorrect, but that's what got me.
I sent my MIL and SIL a text saying "Can't wait to get *penis* tomorrow" MIL responded "I don't need to what you and my son do. Unless you're planning more grandkids for me  ;)"

MIL and I have a really good relationship, and it was all in good fun/good natured teasing, but I was mortified
In the United States today, there is a pervasive tendency to treat children as adults, and adults as children.  The options of children are thus steadily expanded, while those of adults are progressively constricted.  The result is unruly children and childish adults.  ~Thomas Szasz

I was texting a friend of mine about our school's online registration system for scheduling classes.  It was super early so I guess my hand-eye coordination was a little off...

Friend:  "They will notify me if I make it off the list right?  They won't just put me in that class?"
Me: "The Ayatollah won't let you register automatically from the wait list." 
Friend:  "Hahaha Yeah, you know that ayatollah.  Likes to have his hands on a wide variety of issues, including our class schedules."


hehe  ::)

There's a cafe in town called Buli's, which my phone refers to as bulimia.

My sister (who works across the street from me): Want 2 do lunch today?
Me (working at another location): Can't, I'm stuck in another body today  (typed bldg)

About an hour later, after I'd forgotten earlier convo, and didn't notice the dyac anyway:

My sister: Whose body are you stuck in?
Me: Hog?   (typed Huh?)

So now the running joke if I can't go to lunch is that I'm stuck in the hog's body again.

My fiance was once texting me about a guy he knows that has a 'medical cannabis card'... Only it auto corrected to 'medical cannibal card.'

I think I made myself sick laughing.

My autocorrect automatically changes my sister's name to "Fatty".

I once texted my mom about my new boyfriend: 'I haven't found a thing about him that I don't like, even his gassiness doesn't bother me.'               She responded: 'Can I have a talk with him about fellatio?'     Her I-phone 'corrected' the way she had spelled 'flatulence'....     I had no words.... Lol!

I recall years ago someone posting on a very serious, professional board, that their company was hiring, and they were looking for people to fill management positions in "Ventricular and Monaural".

Great  ??? on the board, until the original poster shamefacedly admitted he had typed "Vancouver and Montreal", then "Spellcheck - accept all corrections".

To make him feel better, someone told a story about sending a letter to the "Soandso Lumbermen's Association" which spellcheck helpfully changed to the "Soandso Lamebrain's Association".
My cousin's memoir of love and loneliness while raising a child with multiple disabilities will be out on Amazon soon! Know the Night, by Maria Mutch, has been called "full of hope, light, and companionship for surviving the small hours of the night."

My friend had the best one. Back in college she texted her mother to say she was on a date and would be home in a while. It came out as "On a date with BF, i'll be good in a while". Her mother still asks her if she's being good.

The letter reminds me - I once received an invoice addressed to "companynames bacon-fed knave"... they meant to put "companyname & associates"

And of course there was that time when I used the dictation programme for the first (and last) time on the important college paper, and didn't review it before printing and submitting it... The only reason I got a pass was because my tutor knew that it was atypical for me and the only reason I had not personally spell checked it was because I was grieving a close relative's passing at the time. I still have to giggle when I think what must she have thought when she read the first sentance "The Sausage King rained for 50 years"
