I don't have a computer at home, so I post short post from my phone.

(This is a text convo between a friend of mine who lost their home)

Me: So, how are you doing otherwise?

Her: Not too bad, we have to rent a trailer now though

Me: I've lived in a trailerparkmedic, it's not too bad.

Her: What?

Me: LOL, sorry Auto Correct

Me: This job is going to send me to an early Gravekeeper

Ooooh, this is an interesting topic. So, as all are aware, I'm certain, I'm dating xx_wolfie_xx, and back in December 2010, when we first started talking, I was home visiting my family for Christmas. We stayed in touch via gchat, and at one point, i sat down on the remote and the TV switched on. I sent a funny message to him, and this was the ensuing conversation

Me: I just scared myself!
Him: Oh? How?
Me: I sat on the remote and the TV turned on. My butt has scary powers, it's trying to take over!
Him: You have a Nicaragua butt.
Me: ...


Not five seconds later my phone is ringing. I pick up, and don't even get a chance to say hello before, he's shouting (In the aisles of Target, while nicely tipsy, I might add...) "NICE. I WROTE YOU HAVE A *NICE* BUTT!!

I suppose it could have been worse. "Nice" could as easily have autocorrected to "Niagara".

I wonder if wolfie thought he'd written Niagara.

I'd have loved to have been in that Target. I'm sure he got a few stares.

He's lucky he didn't end up in Sightings :lol:

I love the Damn You Autocorrect site. Hubby has walked in to the house on several occasions to find roomie and I laughing so hard we literally can't talk because of some of the posts there. I rarely text, but I never have autocorrect on in the first place. :roll:

My dad once proceeded to call me "chimney" in a text message. I knew what it mean but still :lol:

I just found that site a moment ago and almost fell out of the chair just reading the first page.:roll::roll::roll:

So far I've not had any major boo-boos with the auto correct but I'm not going to put anything past my iPhone.:lol:

This one's not so much a phone autocorrect, but rather a very hilarious typo.

Basically, a conversation between me and a few friends on Facebook somehow turned into one that was NSFW. Eventually we agreed not to talk about sex for one minute, so I typed in *hums the Cantina Bang song* meaning "cantina Band song".

Only once someone pointed it out, did I realise what I typed. That just made it worse :roll:

Surely you people Jester. Is this the only thing you have to Rapscallion about? Just utterly Ree diculous. Cause I would think you could do Beckster.

I am often getting odd texts from my older sister because of her autocorrect. Which, of course, she doesn't bother correcting. I much prefer my phone, which I have set to NOT autocorrect. Since I am pretty much a walking dictionary, I'm usually better at correcting than any old piece of technology could be, thank you very much.

Someone actually commented it sounds like the title of a porn film.

I can't look at DYAC. Says page size is too large. :(

My phone did this once while putting in a contact. I meant to just list her with her initials, TT, but auto correct changed it to Titty.

First time she called, I was greatly confused as to why a boob was calling me and why a boob was in my contact list. Had a good laugh afterwards and fixed her name on the phone's contact list.

Add an h (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhang) and it is something entirely less innocent!:roll:
