I'm admin on an FB forum for PTAs. Someone has just commented on a thread about Santa's Grottos, apparently they're going to decorate theirs with "snowflake netting across the windows, a blow up father christmas and tree on the outside, oh and not forgetting the *snow top foof*"

I laughed so hard. What's the best typo you've ever seen/done? I did confuse lick and kick once in a dirty text...... could have been a bit ouchy.....

I think I’d quite like a snow topped foof. I wonder if I can create the effect with some fake snow?

Classic grin

I was goimg on a first date recently. We had decided on a coffee and dog walk.
There is a cafe next to the canal. He asked whats the plan? I responded ' Pear Tree Hall and anal?' hmm

Maybe some talcum powder would do it?

@inmyshoos on a first date?! Was there a second?

Our school sent a text saying "don't forget the willies"

I got an email once about a clinic nearby that now had more appointments "however, they will shit early on Wednesday"

Well I suppose Wednesday is as good a day as any for an early shit. Not so much a typo as an unfortunate font but a workman with a van parked near my dds school had the surname Clint in gold rimmed writing, from a distance it looked like it said B Cunt repairs. The older kids and parents did snigger

On HIGFNY a few weeks ago, the amusing typo was from a pub advertising "good foof". grin

Someone on here wrote about being annoyed that their neighbour had been cutting their ‘Holy Bush’ I sniggered at that, as did a lot of others I think 😂

Ages ago, I wrote an email to a colleague who was on maternity leave about who'd received what in the workplace Secret Santa, and sudoku book was autocorrected to sodomy book.

My colleagues email constantly tries to autocorrect his sign off to “Kind Retards”

He’s worried sick one day he’ll miss it before he presses send.

On a side note my phone just changed sick to suck above but I caught it in time grin

This to friend (names changed obv!):

“Hi Lorraine, sorry but I kissed Dave earlier so that’s not much help!”.

Lorraine replied:

“Oh really? Was he any good?!”.

I had no clue till I re-read! Then grovelled for her forgiveness at my typo!

Lorraine is married to Dave. Lorraine is my best friend! She thought it was hilarious. I’ve not seen Dave in a while and I shall run away when I’m next due to see him incase he thinks he’s gonna get his face snogged off 😂😂😂

Someone at work had a document to send to me and they messaged to say they would "poop in the internal mail"

Years ago I worked for a bottled gas company.

I had to do a memo out to staff to remind them not to taken half empty cylinders home. Had a bit of a finger mix up and wrote:

"fart filled cylinders" instead of "part filled cylinders"

Luckily the boss spotted it before it went out - after showing the whole department!!!

On my first day in a new job, my autocorrect changed "lunch" to "lube". As in, "just popping out for lube, see you at 3pm".

My favourite has to be my colleague who once asked the IT team in a passive aggressive email to 'empty their bowels before using the dishwasher'!

I've done loads but the ones that made me laugh for ages was one when I told partner to use microphone (which he never had before, or since!) for his text to friend and ask him how Helen was - he didn't realise until it had gone that it had put "How's Hitler" ... made worse because friend is Jewish confused

Once I had ordered a toy for another friend's son and text her that the fidget pubes had arrived

My first legal job was for a firm which specialised in miners' compensation claims. I was new to the game and did not realise what an inexact science audio typing was, largely because I was far too busy strutting up and down with my dictaphone pretending to be Ally McBeal.

As a consequence I sent a letter of claim referring to the loss of earnings suffered by my client as a result of his debilitating vibrator white finger...

I told a client I was running late to meet that I’d love a cock instead of a coke. Thank god he found it hilarious.

I sent an email to several (very senior) members of our local county council. I was also REALLY pissed off with them all, but trying to be nice (through a barely suppressed snarl).

I started the email

Dear County

except, I missed out the o....

Very, very, very fortunately, I did spot that one before I hit send, so it probably doesn't count. But I do run cold whenever I remember what I nearly did.

I was meeting up with my adult son at the weekend. When I got there, I texted "just parked and walking through town now."

He texted back "I wouldn't do that, you'll probably get arrested!"

I was puzzled until I realised I'd sent him "just parked and wanking through town now." blush
