I just sent an email begining:

"Dear Shat"

I need to set fire to my computer and run away forever.

His name is Shay.

WanderingTrolley1 Mon 17-Jul-17 07:58:58

I'm sure he's had this before. Maybe.

carart Mon 17-Jul-17 07:59:20

Haha! Poor Shay 😞

Gileswithachainsaw Mon 17-Jul-17 07:59:49

Oh god grinblush

Do you think he will see funny side?

Fiction, not fact however the typo in Curb Your Enthusiasm about "My Beloved Aunt" was genius

A few months ago I emailed to introduce myself to an important work contact called Nazli.

Guess which letter I missed out?! blush

How about an email to everyone in the company introducing yourself and advising of some changes? Naturally you carefully use spell check and being polite you apologise "for any incontinence caused" . Not me, btw !

I sent an email to a lesbian couple, parents to 3 kids, ending in, "if you have any father enquiries, please let me know"

To set the scene my boss was rather age sensitive. In reply to a text she sent asking me to do something, I replied okey dokey.....except pre-emptive text changed it to oldy foldy. Never could persuade her it wasn't intentional.

I accidentally typed

Hope you have a sad journey home instead of safe.

Unfortunately, he (now my ex) accused me of writing it deliberately and he had a massive temper tantrum.

grin sorry I have no really embarrassing typo's but really needed a good laugh this morning!

Pubic services instead of public services is a fairly frequent one in my line of work.

One of the girls I used to work with was called Natasha but liked to go by Tash. Spellcheck would always correct it and I can't tell you how many e-mails I sent saying "Hi Trash". Fortunately she saw the funny side.

A work colleague arranged a site visit to a derelict house & sent me an email saying - 'It's very muddy so you will need your willies' (autocorrect didn't recognise the word 'wellies'!)

TheWildRumpyPumpus Mon 17-Jul-17 08:50:55

My phone autocorrects Heather to Heavier (awkward in this instance) and Sarah to Satan. Always spot it just as I hit send!

UrethaFranklin Mon 17-Jul-17 08:52:24

I deal with a lot of Chinese people for work and sent an email to a guy called Yida. Autocorrect changed this to Yoda...

bettyetty Mon 17-Jul-17 08:54:10

Follow for laughs 😂

SmokingGun Mon 17-Jul-17 09:02:34

Frequently emailed a customer called Brendan and missed the n off of the end. Luckily he always replys with only at the weekend so sees the funny side.

I've missed the o out of count and sent and emails saying kind retards rather than kind Regards blush

When I was a baby lawyer I did a placement in a firm which handled miners' compensation claims. I had a lot to learn about how accurate legal typists were and assumed that my dictated letters were broadly accurate. Send out a load of letters updating clients on the progress of their "vibrator white finger" claims. blush

I once replied to email about lunch choices for a day out at work. Fish pie, Thai curry, lasagne etc.

I said "The child is sounding really tasty to me" when I meant chilli blush

I worked for a government department with an ancient database that you couldn't alter once you'd saved the text. My friend one day missed the o out of county. It still says cunty on that particular record.

BringOnTheScience Mon 17-Jul-17 09:12:17

I used to work with a chap called Chitral. Auto-correct preferred Clitoral.

I was in the water industry. Boreholes auto-corrects to brothels.

ConstanceCraving Mon 17-Jul-17 09:13:35

Haha. I'm guessing it won't be the first time he's had an email like that!
