What I Meant to Say was...

I have a love/hate relationship with the auto correct on my iPhone.

If I turn it off, I want it back on, to help me text loooong words.

And when I have it on, it changes my words, resulting in crazy sentences. Grrr...

The other day, my niece asked if I meant to call her a HOE (word I was going for: HOPE).


So, of course, there's already a website dedicated to it:
http://www.damnyouautocorrect.com/


I go there to laugh my arse off:



DAMN YOU, AUTO- CORRECT!


LOL!

hahah! This reminds me of an email typo I once sent to a colleague who hadn't been paid her wage for over two months. I wrote, "So, have you been laid yet? hehe

Bahaha hilarious! I feel the same way about auto correct, but these were down right hilarious!! Mine are normally super stupid, but it makes you want to throw the phone across the room at times!

Kelly said...

Funny!
I'm not much of a texter so no autocorrection for me. But the wrong words do occasionally fall out of my mouth! :)

Anne said...

Ahahah auto correct makes me insane at times!

Hoe? Oh well, I suppose there are worse things to be calling someone. I once managed to describe my best friend as my best fiend - whoops!

Matthew Rush said...

Hot rubbing sounds really uncomfortable. I do love that website though. LOL!

Meream said...

Haha hilarious! I shall now waste the last few hours of the day on that website. :)

PS. Yep, I made the rosettes. :)

This happens to me all the time!!!! I spend more time trying to correct what I said that it would be easier to call!

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

LOL. My iPhone does that to me as well. Sometimes it's easier to call than let the autocorrect make me look like an idiot. :)

That is hysterical! I too have a love hate relationship with my auto correct. But I think it's more love. I think.

That is too hillarious. I haven't done much texting, but plan to join the revolution after x-mas when I get my smart phone. I don't know how I'll deal because my spelling's so bad I need all the help I can get.

Autocorrect sucks!! My iPhone has a life of its own, I tell ya. But this just makes me smile :D See?

WritingNut said...

Ahhh... too funny! Auto correct can drive you crazy!

Shannon said...

Krispy said...

Love that site! My sister showed it to me because she has been burned by her iPhone autocorrect too.

Lourie said...

I need auto correct because I am such poor speller, but yeah it can really mess you up. "Hoe." BHAHAHAHAHA!
