Autocorrect and predictive awkwardness...

I think the time is right for a good Friday night selection of embarrassing things your modern technology has sent to people on your behalf.

I'll kick off with a couple of my own genuine boo-boos -

- Several times I have sent "kind retards" to people

- I once requested someone to call my "landmine"

- And the weirdest of all, I used the phrase "fart about" in the normal way, autocorrect changed "fart" to "Gary". I've never knowingly typed the name "Gary".... I think this was the most bizarre of all, certainly raised the most sniggers.

Over to you...

Without trying to remember specifics, the number of times I've replied to people with non-English language names without checking to see what the autocorrect has done to their names remains a major cause of embarrassment.:mad:

My ipad has just been updated to iOS 13.1.2. If it was bad before, it is effing awful now. It doesn't seem to autocorrect any more... just picks any one of twenty six letters for each letter typed. Result = utter gdftlygourk.

manually correcting the blasted thing is tiresome

Ugly got upset because I pointed out that he was dimmer than a broken torch.

"TocH lamp" is, I believe, a more colourful and erudite phrase.

Did he tell you to get fucked?
 
I almost replied to one of our German clients offering "Fuhrer help" if they need it

You may feel that you knob me but i can assure you I have never been knobbed in my life. That is not about to change either so please divert your knob unwanted attentions elsewhere.

Out of curiosity only, are you undergoing gender reassignment?
