Beginning to get pissed off by all these predictive text/autocorrect mistakes

Just opened about 4 different threads and auto correct/predictive text mistakes in the first few comments not making sense at all.

I'm not bothered by spelling/grammar mistakes because a majority of the time a sentence still makes sense if you've spelled something wrong. These new autocorrect and predictive text mistakes alter a whole sentence.

It's just ironic that something that's been invented to make typing easier and clearer makes it worse.
I also hate the hilarious (!) comments that follow an autocorrect error...or the obligatory "bloody autocorrect!"...just check before you post ffs.

Sometimes I have to fight my autocorrect. Just when I think I've won, it bitch slaps me like a ninja!

Buttock Sun 05-Jun-16 12:12:41

Turn it off then hmm

Autocorrect is an absolute bloody pita! Just goes to show how superior the human brain is to any programme.

NeedACleverNN Sun 05-Jun-16 12:14:05

No cos 95% of the time it does help.

You are being unseasonable.

I find it all rather amusing, and sometimes there is an element of parapraxis

MrsJayy Sun 05-Jun-16 12:15:31

I turned off my auto correct my typos are all my own workgrin

Highlandfling80 Sun 05-Jun-16 12:16:27

My auto-correct seems to change after I pressed send. So checking doesn't help.

My auto correct knows google <smug>

It's typical though. When ever an autocorrect thread comes up, it behaves perfectly. When I want to write a long paragraph of importance it fucks up angry

Yam definitely bum!

Buttock Sun 05-Jun-16 12:24:04

Today I saw someone type "Siamese buns"...I thought they were a real thing hmm...then I realised it was a sesame bun.

MrsJayy Sun 05-Jun-16 12:28:14

Siamese buns grin

My boss is Jewish and I nearly sent a text which had autocorrected itself to "I hate our Jews!😳😳😳😳 instead of "I hate our new". Luckily I spotted it before sending as that would have been mega awkward 😂😂

My old phone autocorrected DH's name to Greed.

My new one doesn't. I miss Greed.
