Autocorrect – it can be your best friend or your mortal enemy…
How many times have you typed something – be it on your phone or on your computer – only to realize the words that are on the page have nothing do do with what you meant to say? Or worse, how many times are the words pure gibberish?
Autocorrect is famous for changing my name to Hitler. Seriously?
But every once in a while autocorrect is genius…
Setting: My Den, my husband holding his Ipad
Action: My husband texting Mike, our security guard
“I just texted Mike and told him to walk by and pick up dinner.” My husband said to me.
“Ok, I will get a container for it,” I replied.
TWEET, TWEET, TWEET – the sound of an incoming text
“What did he reply?” I asked.
My husband, staring confused at the screen, “Anticipate the difficult by managing the easy.”
“Mike said that? That is deep!” I replied.
“Do you think….”
TWEET, TWEET, TWEET
“Yep, autocorrect.” My husband replied.
“Genius.. I have got to remember that one!”
