Irrational Comma Placement and Other Hilarity

How the fuck do people take these pictures??
First and foremost, you must know that the irrational comma placement is NOT my fault. I blame it on poor eyesight (yes, mine) and longish fingernails. After all, the comma on my phone is right next to the space bar. They're both TINY (and a little blurry).

So my, texts tend, to look, like this. And it's just too fucking hard to move that nano-cursor around to delete the commas (although I do make the effort about 50% of the time). If you receive one of my comma-filled texts, you must remember that I am not quite that irrational. I may misplace a comma here and there (admit it, they can be confusing), but never in the same way as my phone.

I have also had some auto-correct instances which I catch (and never remember.....see next paragraph. And I have no idea how to take those pictures.....see picture) and fix before they go out.

But if you want to see some really funny auto-correct issues, check out Damn You Auto-Correct. The Husband and I read a few the other night and laughed our asses off. 

Have you had any memorable auto-correct funnies? Any irrational comma placements (or am I the only one??)?

Have you been there?

    LMAO! I love that web site...I flipped through a few of them just now and was literally LOL in the office here at the day job.

    If you are using an iPhone, to get a screen capture press the power button and then the button on the bottom front (whose name escapes me right now) of the phone and you'll hear the little camera sound. Your screen shot will be saved automatically to your "Photos" folder.

    I do a lot of proof-reading when I'm using my phone. I have to. Auto-correct is NOT my freaking friend!!! I missed one when I was laughing at a friend's auto-correct snafu a couple weeks ago and as I was making fun, I typed and sent without proofreading.

    "Auto colorectal" is now a a regular word in much of our phone to phone correspondence. :)


Yes! I've been there, Claire!
