When auto-correct ruins your life ...

Brookie had a birthday, so we shouted hooray!

To express her appreciation for all those who shouted hooray, she wrote the following Facebook status, "Thanks for all the Birthdayness everyone! I had a great day and got spoiled by Adam!"

P.s. Adam is her husband.


I respond with, "I love it when Adam spoils me for my birthday."


I was a little surprised when the next person who responded said, "TMI!"


I was more than a little confused. I didn't know how Brooke's status was inappropriate, because I knew

mine certainly was not. 


I returned to it to see if I had read her status wrong or was missing some secret, hidden married

implication and no, I was sure I hadn't.

 

I then looked at what I wrote, because I thought it was clever.



THAT is when I realized I had not said, "I love it when Adam spoils me for my birthday."


No, no.



Auto-correct had opted to help me out a little. Resulting in:




"I love it when Adam soils me for my birthday."




And this is why we love auto-correct.




I cannot decide which is better, this one or the time when I texted, "No worries" and it came out as "No

uterus."

That is funny. This is why I try to always reread texts before I send them. I am rather paranoid that my phone will say something I didn't intend. :)
