You said WHAT? People share their funniest texting autocorrect fails – including a mother who said her son was ‘adopted’ instead of ‘accepted’
- My Health Gazette rounded-up some of the funniest autocorrect fails ever
- From the baffling to the frankly obscure, these messages left recipients shocked
- Among the corrections are caskets instead of castles in declarations of love
As many of us know, a misplaced autocorrect can drastically change the meaning of a message.
So spare a thought for these people who had their texts unintentionally altered by technology, with dramatic results.
My Health Gazette has rounded-up some of the funniest messaging fails from around the world – including a correction which mistakenly sees casket instead of castle being used in a declaration of love.
Another confuses a burglar with a squirrel (leading the unfortunate reader to panic), and one sends wet sloppy kids rather than kisses.
Here FEMAIL reveals some of the funniest autocorrect fails ever…
We’ve all had crazy days – but not usually as crazy as ‘devouring’ infants in taxis, with this mother’s autocorrected messages telling quite a tale
This savage autocorrect disaster could mean the relationship is doomed, after the sender seemingly threatened to buy their partner a casket
One might expect news of this magnitude to be worthy of a phone call. This text was so shocking, it apparently took a full five years off the recipient’s life
Adopted, accepted, there’s a big difference. Unless you’re dealing with tech, in which case, they are the same thing
Well that could have gone horribly wrong…asking your pal to get pregnant before they come over – even if they are a really good friend – is a favour too far
Autocorrect takes an increasingly bizarre turn as it transforms the common phrase ‘pick me up’ into ‘pickle me up’. What was it thinking?
We may never understand what this person was actually trying to say. Perhaps they were pondering some of life’s biggest mysteries. Do ducks have jackets?
This autocorrect disaster could have ended in a call to the emergency services, with the phone bizarrely changing ‘squirrel’ into burglar
Most people would probably have a pretty major fight if their significant other was driving around with a corpse. Good thing this sender actually meant a Camaro car instead
Punching DVDs could be a new age technique for venting your rage…or it could just be autocorrect ruining standard words like ‘face’ again
There’s so much to unpack here. Wet sloppy kids? From a dog? Thank goodness this one is the phone’s spellchecker going rogue
