Damn You Auto Correct

I was warned. I didn’t heed advice. It wasn’t the first time and it certainly won’t be the last.

Call it my wiring. If my curiosity peaks, there’s almost no way of stopping me. There’s this pull inside of me that just needs to know, needs to explore, and needs to get to the bottom of it especially if someone says, “Maybe you shouldn’t.”

I’m being pretty dramatic here but it really is true.

At the wedding this last weekend in California, I was talking to this kid at the reception. I’m calling him a kid because to me he was; yet he was actually 28 years old. I guess not technically a kid but a kid to me.

Anyway, we were talking about a whole bunch of kid like things…I’m really just razzing him here…we were having a serious discussion about the meaning of life and experience. No we weren’t either!

We were talking about texting for no other reason then I received one, while standing next to him at the wine bar, that got jumbled up and I started to laugh out loud apparently. He asked what was so funny. So I showed him the text which, in turn, caused him to join me in what became more of a fit of laughter over something really stupid.

Alex told me about this website, “Damn You Autocorrect”. I’d never heard of it before which is not unusual. I’m not always on top of my game when it comes to professional web surfing. Kids are for this educational purpose, for me at least, and I learned this from the kid ;-) at the wedding.

I’d forgotten about it until last night when I got an email asking did I remember the website and have I looked at it yet and did it make me laugh?

(Of course I do), (No, I hadn’t), (Oh My Goodness, YES)

I was laughing to the point of tears, so hard that my daughter walked into the room and said, “MOM, what is so funny? What are you looking at?” almost in an accusatory tone. All I could do was show her.

So inappropriate. So hysterical. So addicting!

She’s warned me in the past about getting started on “Stumble Upon” saying it wouldn’t be a good thing for me. Does this kid know me or what? I didn’t but if it’s as funny as DYAC, maybe I should.

Alex should have warned me about this but then again, he doesn’t really know me.

If you haven't seen this before, check out this link or google it. I'll warn you that most are inappropriate but silly fun...


  1. This is just what I need sitting at this computer getting paid to do nonexistent work.

    1. Arnebya,
      Go check out that link. I swear I was laughing so hard I was crying. So inappropriate but couldn't break away! And that's my problem. I get lead down a path and I forget to turn back around until it's too late.

  2. This is friend has sent me some of these... But would a phone change something to nipples? I'm going to start blaming all my subconscious typings on autcorrect from now on in...(There are the things you type and the things you would love to put out there!)

  3. I think it might change to nipples if you've used that word before in a text. It's a guy. He probably had. I'm not sure how it works only that it's hysterical. There's lots I'd like to put out there secretly but don't. I'd be too embarrassed.

  4. I absolutely love that site! It cracks me up every time!! Thanks for reminding me of it so that I can check it out again.

    1. So after you peruse that sight, go to the top and click on "Wong Number Texts". way too funny and I never should have started this.

  5. Oh my word but those are funny! Thanks for sharing the site... I know what I'll be doing this evening!
