Found this article and after checking out the site, I found that this often gives me an abundance of laughs.


What with all the walking and texting, dining and texting, and talking and texting that goes on, it's no wonder that communication sometimes breaks down.


Throw in auto correct, and you're guaranteed some jaw-dropping mishaps. That's probably why the blog  Damn you, Auto Correct which collects text exchanges gone wrong, has proved so popular. Since launching in October, it's garnered almost 300 million page views.


Here are some gems randomly selected from the archives:


Exchange #1: We need to talk


    "Be warned: I'm dumping you when I get home tonight."


    "Fine with me. I was just thinking we could use some time apart."


    "...JENNA??? I got autocorrected. I mean to write jumping you not dumping you. And you're telling me     you want to break up?"


    "Well this is awkward."


Exchange #2: Shocking News


    "I've got to tell you something. Are you sitting down?"


    "I am actually. What's up mom?"


    "Your brother was adopted!"


    "What??? What are you talking about? Why are you telling me this over a text? Call me."


    "Oh this damn phone. I wrote accepted and the phone changed it. He got accepted to Yale!"


Exchange #3: Dangerous dealings


    "Hey Taliban. Does someone your size usually wear an xl shirt?"


    "...auto correct! I typed "tallman"


    "Well now we're on a FBI watch list. Thanks."


Exchange #4: Now that's a bad date


    "So how was the date last night bro"


    "...first date we went to dinner and then walked her home. then i killed her in the woods outside her     house and left"


    "Killing her seems a bit harsh. Did she order the lobster and filet mignon at dinner or something?"


    "***************KISSED..."

Simple solution. Just don't use autocorrect.

Fortunately my phone give me the choice if i want to correct it or not but if I'm in a hurry I've almost caught myself just double clicking which means I could have been sending one of the above...

Strangely about the same time Cory posted this I rediscovered that "site" (DYAC) and was laughing so hard was reduced to tears. Sadly, most of them are NSFPL (Not Safe For Police Link), but those are seriously the best ones.


What makes them even funnier is that the autocorrect feature builds its wordlist from previous texts the person has been using--frequency counts too. In other words, if they are getting a lot of words replaced with *cough* risque ones, it's because they've been using those words frequently in other texts for *cough* some reason. ;)


If you're not overly sensitive, Google DYAC.

Some of those are crazy funny...and how many of us have these mishaps? I know I do all the time; usually not nearly that funny
