The bad and nasty things autocorrect has done to you.

Recommended Posts

Today I sent a text reminder from my tablet about the rocket team presentation with NASA and stated that we would be taking the team out for ice cream after to "celebrate" except that autocorrect, obviously written by deviants, changed it to "celibate" and I sent the text without noticing it.

 

Thank goodness for 4H moms with a sense of humor!

That's a good one!

 

I once sent a text invite to very close family friends, to come over and hang out.  The kids would play, the mom and I would work on some project we were doing.  I don't remember what I tried to say about the dads, but basically we invited him over to hang out with DH and "lick themselves"!   :svengo:

I texted my husband and ask him if he had heard back from the guy about his deck. Auto correct changed the E in deck to an I.

Auto correct says "you disgust me" every time I put "you" in a text. The first time it REALLY upset my dd (then 15) I can't catch it, it puts it in after I hit send. I just have to remember not to use the word "you".

Your child might have pulled a trick on you. Mine programmed my phone to type "I'll kill you" every time I wrote "love." Luckily I am a stickler about checking forr mistakes before I hit send. :o

Mine once changed "wishing you peace" to "wishing you fetus."

 

I caught it before sending. It would have been extremely inappropriate to the situation.

I had a friend who was asked to give an estimate about something. She responded "I'm such a bad assessor about those things." 

 

What she actually  sent was "I'm such a bad ass about those things."  She has a new nickname now.

Back when I homeschooled, autocorrect would always change "homeschooling" to "homehooking", which always made me giggle.

 

I've had that happen.  And homeschooler become home hooker.  Once I said we were having chicken noodle soup for lunch and it autocorrected to chicken noodle poop.

I once texted a fellow homeschooling mom "I'll be bringing (daughter's name) back in under 15 minutes." The autocorrect sent- "I'll bring (dd name) to the undertaker in 15 minutes." Wow! I was glad she'd had autocorrect issues like that too.

When we first got our phones it kept changing DD's name that starts with an S to Satan.  I texted my husband once "Satan and I are at the DMV."

 

A friend's husband is named Craig, and my phone always corrects to Craigslist.  "You and Craigslist can come over later!"

OP thanks for the laugh.  Usually, my problems with Auto Correct are that I have a word that is spelled correctly, but, I used the wrong word. Their VS there. During the past few days, I sent a WhatsApp message to one of the 3 WhatsApp Groups our HOA has. (Administrator, Neighbors and Zumba).  Well,my phone speaks English and I was writing in Spanglish.  The Auto Correct corrected a word I had written in Spanish, and replaced it with an English language word.  I did not realize that, before I sent the message. In your case, it is good that your group has a collective sense of humor.

Lol!  Your dd and mine must have the same name, as we have the same problem!

Autocorrect, even back on Blackberry, would change my oldest's name to Sudan. Every freaking time. We finally just started calling her Sudan in all of our texts and it's become the family inside joke. Hey Sudan! I guess we should be grateful it was Sudan and not Satan.

I knew someone who was texting me about an Asus computer and her autocorrect kept changing it to "anus."

 

I had a girlfriend who was in Medical School. in her class, there was a guy whose last name was Anus. Everyone told him that he needed to become a Proctologist.

I swear to you that I laughed so hard, at 2 or 3 of the replies, that I was afraid that I would choke...

I sent a text to my dd once (at college) that said "I am suicidal."  I can't remember what it was supposed to say...but nothing even remotely close to that!!  I saw it within a second or two after I sent it, and was able to set things straight pretty quickly!

On the iPhone it's Settings>General>Keyboards>Text Replacement.

 

There has been much pranking (which autocorrect would like to change to "prancing") in my house with this little feature. DH once programmed mine so it said "woof" every time I typed "ok". One of the kids got ahold of my dad's phone and programmed it so it said "meow" every time he typed no or something common like that. 😂

Oh man... My kids are asking what's so funny! Think I got my laughs for the day! I have had a few that I can't remember. I did accidentally send this 👺 Emoji to someone once (red faced angry guy with big nose for those not on iPhone).

My friend always gets "God" in place of her son's name, Gideon. So she tells people all the things God is up to on a given day; i.e., "God will be at the park today," or "God's taking a shower."

That is some serious special snowflake syndrome there!

I'm a tutor. 

 

The word tutoring frequently gets changed to torturing. For some students it may be true.  :huh:  :lol:

I can't think of good ones I've sent. My MIL once sent  a group text to at least 60 people that said, her mom (90) was in the hospital with an STD.

I think I've told this one on here before but it was hilarious. DH was texting his mother who was coming to our house for Christmas. He tried to text "our church does incense, will that be okay?" but it changed incense to incest.

Fortunately, this was a note for myself, but when I typed in the VBS saying "Hooray, Jesus!" it auto-corrected to Horny Jesus. So wrong!

This made me remember...when Facebook messenger first came out with the giant emojis you could send, I made a mistake. A friend of a friend was diagnosed with cancer. We weren't really friends in real life, but she was a Facebook friend. I went into my messenger app to send her a quick message and while I was there, I noticed something new. I clicked On the emojis out of curiosity, having no idea that by clicking I was actually sending. Of course, the one I clicked on was the giant, green puking emoji!!! I was horrified. I quickly typed up a message explaining what I did. It was so embarrassing. Thankfully, she has a great sense of humor and she told our mutual friend that it gave her a chuckle.
