13 People Share Their Most Memorable Autocorrect Fails
Autocorrect: we love it and hate it at the same time. In an ideal world, autocorrect would correct our typos. In reality, we often find ourselves having to go back and fix autocorrect changes before sending our messages. Yet, we don’t always catch these changes, and that can lead to confusing text messages.
You can probably relate to sending a text to someone and they respond with some sort of confusing message. Then you realize the text you sent wasn’t what you meant to send. There is some glaring change made by autocorrect.
It is possible to turn autocorrect off, and maybe we should all do that. Yet, if we did, we wouldn’t have the memories of these funny autocorrect changes. Scroll down for 13 examples of really bizarre and memorable autocorrect fails.
Autocorrect just changed my text from, “I’m going to save my muffin” to “I’m going to shave my muffin” and now my husband is racing home toward some real disappointment.

Just went to write “homophobic” in a text and it autocorrected to “jomo jobo” and unfortunately that is so funny and I will be adopting it. I’m sorry your dad is jomo jobo

My phone changed “I’m doing well” to “I’m dying well” and now I’m worried autocorrect knows something about me I don’t.

I texted my wife “Tonight after the kids go down, let’s wine and dine” except my phone changed it to “wine and die.” It’s almost like auto-correct knows how hard it is to be a parent.

Today, I received a text that said “Good morning” and when I texted back, auto-correct had changed it to “Good nothing.” And with two cranky kids, I’d say my phone had a pretty good understanding of the situation.

My phone changed “jingle all the way” to “jiggle all the way”. Well played autocorrect.
