favorite typos - what's yours? (Read 154 times)

    Auto-complete and spell check give us some wonderful typos. You wind up not with just a garbled word but a completely different word that can have some unexpected meanings.  Sometimes I fight my text messaging when I'm trying to communicate and it thinks it knows what I wanted to say!

     

    Here are a couple I've enjoyed lately:

    In a post somewhere on this site giving a race report (quite a race it was!)  the person ended by saying "I picked up my metal, ..." 

     

    This is my real favorite. In a post about wearing an extra layer to keep muscles loose  in the cold weather, "The guise at the gym must think I'm a wimp."

     

    Run across any good ones?  I'm  not thinking of  the grammar police stuff where we gripe about people who write about how they want to loose weight, but something where they wind up saying something just a bit different.

    Brrrrr

        Cockeyed got turned into bananaeyed by a filter language program on a forum. It made me giggle.

        My hubby got named "Bhubaneswar" by my iPad. No idea how that happened but whenever I type "Mark", it subs that word. WTH is it even?! It made my FB status post that day! It still makes me giggle uncontrollably.

          Autocorrect changed my Wife's son "Jordan"'s name to "Hoecake". He will forever be known as Hoecake.

            I have only had a Iphone since August and I'm not very good at texting or checking

            for errors.

             

            I have sent some pretty embarrassing ones to my 21 yr old son. I can't remember

            that particular word I meant to type but it ended up as "whore"Blush and we just don't

            talk like that in our family!LOL

              Was it made of gold, silver or bronze metal?

                  Was it made of gold, silver or bronze metal?

                   

                  and wasn't that metal awfully heavy after running the marathon?

                    My son came running in from the next room to see why I was laughing so hard! Bhubaneswar?!!!! My stomach hurt I was laughing so hard at that!

                    Not an auto-correct typo but memorable - I work for a small town newspaper building ads. The local Clock shop was having a "huge blowout on Grandfather cocks".  Luckily we caught that error before it went to press lol.

                          I've misdirected texts... thankfully none have been too embarrassing though.

                            These auto-corrects.

                             

                            So funny!  I started laughing so hard at these that I was crying, and DH came into the room and couldn't figure out what was wrong, which made me laugh/cry even more.

                              Not an auto correct, but this one always cracks me up.

                              They'll tell you that failure is not an option.  That's ridiculous.  Failure is always an option.  It is the easiest and most readily available option.  It's your choice though.
