84. Embarrassing typos

“He was going to pick up food and some other thongs.”
What?! Other things. He meant other THINGS.

The thong thing here is, it isn’t just anthoer another average typo. This is one of those good ones that holds the power to embarrass you very much.

“Just a sex sec”

“You go tit got it, right?”

Whoa, the fact that those words happen to fall into a perv-y category is not coincidental. I’ve visited a website called Autocorrect Fail, where people submit screen shots of their text conversations with other people and got a bunch of ideas, so those words are still on my mind. Sorry folks, it will pass. Anyway, some of these can be extremely embarrassing, and they all happen because the phone corrects them (the phone thinks its smarter than you).

Some letters are just not supposed to be next to each other though. Have you ever trying looking at the word “Pumpkin”? Try it now, its awesome. It has all of the letters piled on the right side of the keyboard. Pumpkin. Pumpkin. Yay, entertainment!

I like words, I think they’re cool. However, I am not the typo police and even though I spot typos in an instant, they only bother me for about two seconds and then I get over it. Not a lot of people are like that though. For some of you readers and writers out there, a typo is the equivalent of a person with a huge pimple on their face that is about to burst. It just makes you want to not look at it, say something about it, or fix it!

Do typos and incorrect grammer grammar bother you?

  4. Typos and incorrect grammar drive me absolutely insane…and yet I do it myself ALL the time. Ridiculous.

    However, the most annoying thing that I saw this week was from a girl on Twitter. Apparently, she was hungry and decided to let everyone know by stating that she wanted “chicken-fil-a” for lunch.

    BAM! Just slapped her in the face with a dictionary…

    I don’t like seeing misspellings and such either but I have to see them so often that I can’t get angry about it anymore. I have similar feelings towards business documents that overuse exclamation points, caps lock, and comic sans font.

    Of note in the awkward department are T9 mobile phone automatic type assists that tell my friends I’ll be over as soon as I’m done feeding my father’s acts (cats) or as recently as today, being told that I’m going to a tongue party. (I think “tongue” was somebody pushing the keys a few times too many.)

  6. I’m okay with incorrect spellings but incorrect grammar annoys me for a few seconds…I think I’ve become used to them though…

  7. Oh man, the other day I was writing a post about a prompt from Plinky where it said to describe what clothes you would have on your own clothing line. I was talking about book shirts, and someone later informed me that I made “a bit of a typo”.

    …I sort of left out the “r” in “shirts”. Awkward.

    Oh goodness, totally guilty of accidentally typing “sex” instead of “sec.” I was chatting with a guy I had a massive crush on a couple years ago, and I wrote “Oh, back in a sex….Oh no! I meant sec!”…I was mortified….he was amused.

    I wrote this funny poem and put it on my blog — no! this is NOT an advertsment —- not realising I had put the word’ puckish ‘ rahther than ‘peckish’ which made MUCH MORE sense anyway it didn’t bother anyone: they either saw the error or self-corrected but only one person down the chain picked it up. And do you know what? that’s the only comment he had to m\ake on the whole poem when others said plenty. that’s cruel, man

    You missed an apostrophe out of the word ‘it’s’, when you wrote ‘its awesome’.

    I’m sorry, it bothers me – I can’t help it! 😉
