$%&*@% Auto-Correct!!

What's your experience?

A help or a hindrance?

Sometimes it makes me look like a blithering idiot.

I go back and forth, turning it off and turning it on.

Every time I type where I'm from, auto-correct changes it. I'm from Donegal, not Done Gal.

turned it permanently off, and life is much better.

Awful, I was texting crema marfil (a type of marble) to someone and it corrected to crematorium. The person the text went to had his young wife die very suddenly the previous month. I was mortified.

So what happened, R4?

by Anonymousreply 512/11/2012

I explained what happened and apologized profusely. I'm still embarrassed.

I'm much smarter than it is. I never use it.

Sending the word 'cock' by auto correct, to my mother was horrifying.

OK, this is just too good to be real.

Admit it R3, you did that on purpose, just to stir things up.

I am convinced that Auto-Correct continues to correct your shit even after you press "Send" and your post wends its way through the interwebs.

There is no way I could NOT seen some of the "helpful fixes" Auto-Correct perpetrates.

A friend asked me if I had heard from someone, and I replied, 'No message, no pics no mutton.'

It drives me crazy. People say I can turn it off but I can't find a setting that says autocorrect. Can someone help me??

I was texting my dad "I'm putting these damn lights up on my balcony" and it was auto-corrected to "I'm putting these dildos right up my butthole."

Very embarrassing.

R12, assuming we're all talking about iPhones here, it's Settings > General >Keyboard. You can toggle Auto-Correction to off but leave on Check Spelling, so that it will highlight any entries it questions and provide suggestions but not auto-correct them.

I once texted my mom "I can't wait to taste your pussy!" I meant to say cooking!

UZO clever, R17

Here's betting R4 doesn't know the origin of "mortified" but loving the wordplay if he does.

Auto-correct is being blamed for people's failure to proofread?

I had a sweet cat named Boppie. Auto correct insisted on changing her name to Nipple. Nipple. WTF?

I really miss her. RIP Boppie.

I'm convinced that half of auto correct issues are things people really wanted to say.
