Default Autocorrect

Anybody have any interesting autocorrect stories to share?

1. Don't tread on me was changed to don't thread on me in a recent post.
2. My friend wanted to text me that he was going to buy some pencils for his girls. The text actually said I am going to buy some penises for my girls.

Emailed nursery scheduler at church to say I was unable to keep the nursery that Sunday. I meant to say, "I hope this doesn't cause any inconvenience" It was sent as "I hope this doesn't cause any incontinence".

I'm convinced autocorrect is programmed to do this. :-) Some of the words share like one letter, then you look at how it fits in the sentence...its enough to make the non-swearing person think wtf? It definitely puts some comedy into the day.

This only applies to Apple products...
If you open "settings" and click on "general" and then "keyboard" you can go to the bottom and open the tab that says "add new shortcut"
Now type any common word for the "shortcut" and anything ridiculous for the "phrase"
Now whenever she types "car" it will autocorrect to "potato"
And the best part is, you only need to infiltrate one device and it will affect all of them with the same AppleID
Enjoy

Our farrier told of the time he texted a lady customer about her horse. He texted He shows some swelling in the left front ankle. I suggest you soak his foot in warm Epson Salts water twice a day.

Auto-correct changed it to read: I suggest you soak his cock in warm Epson Salts water twice a day.'

A gay friend invited me to go clubbing one night. I intending to text "I had a long day. Think I'm going to hit the hay." But instead, the message he received was "Stop contacting me! I don't like you like that!"
