Funny Foto Friday: iPhone Auto-correct

There is still time to enter the giveaway!  Go here to enter for basically free money.  I've been burying money in my back yard to sprout a money tree, but all that grows are weeds and trees that shed Melissa Etheridge albums.....as if I hadn't wasted enough money on those.

This past weekend, I finally joined the 21st century and got an iPhone.  I’m actually a bit of a gadget guy, but for some reason I was still carrying around a 2006 version of the Treo smart phone. It was as heavy as a brick, and made my pants pocket look like I just saw Jessica Simpson naked, but it still made phone calls so I was just fine:
The old phone is totally jealous

However, with new found technology, comes new found problems. Enter: Auto-correct. For those of you still living in 2005 like me (bring back Kelly Clarkson!) auto-correct is when the iPhone completes a word that it THINKS you are typing. Both my wife and I have had our run ins with it (turns out we were having tator-tits last night instead of tator-tots……sounds great to me!) but the examples below really take the cake. Happy Friday!

Doesn't everyone ride one of those?

Obviously, someone is going to be sad at Christmas

Ha - the silence was deafening

Ditto

What does the iPhone have against Disneyland!?

If that is an app that I can buy, I'll take 4 please

.....no comment....

I KNEW there was a reason that place was so busy!

That websites constantly has be ROLLING. My favorite thing to do with my phone is the "text to voice" feature. I swear the phone is HIGH.

Chad said...

Dear iPhone:
I never mean to type 'tome'; I usually mean 'time'.
Also, 'fir' should be 'for'.
If you ever see 'mote', I probably meant to type 'note'.
Thanks,
Chad

I love my iPhone.

These are hilarious. Amen to everything Chad said. Plus, WHY must auto correct assume EVERY TIME (cockslap) that I type "miles" I MEAN "mikes"???

"I just ran 6 mikes" is bad enough, but now that I'm out on the bike again and "riding 10 mikes", it's giving me a reputation.

I'll seriously done "whore foods" - I'd like to know who thought whore should be used more that whole.

Emz said...

wait - maybe they should be used together?!

Runners Fuel said...

Love it! I took auto correct off my phone.

Hi! I'm Erin said...

That website never fails to make me laugh.

The "worst" thing I've done is the time my husband texted me to tell me about a good grade he got on an exam I tried to text back "Good job, hon!"

It autocorrected "hon" to "Jon".

My husband's name is not Jon.

Heather said...

You made my day. That is seriously one of the funniest things I have ever seen. I'm on page ten and still cracking up.

The Accidental Runner said...

I actually just laughed until I started crying...too bad I'm still at work and everyone probably thinks I'm nuts!

SupermomE12 said...

Those are great!! I hate the auto correct. Last weekend my sis was coming up to see us and I told her to bring up her snow clothes because my hubby was thinking about "shedding" (should have been sledding). Not near as funny as these though.

LOL I have cramps I'm laughing so hard.... amazing, simply amazing.

Courtney @ I CAN DO THIS said...

The first time I went to that site, I stayed up for like an hour reading it and laughing so hard I cried!

Morgan said...

That is my only complaint about this new gadget, auto correct is the devil! I told someone the other day I was going to get them uranium. I can't even remember now what I was trying to say but I just remember thinking, how many people do you know just write uranium?

ShutUpandRun said...

I like to defecate my house at the holidays. Or my whore.

TutuRunner said...

awesome. i friggin' love that website.

Spike said...

Whorehouse bisexual dongs and cookslap. What a great world we live in.

The Green Girl said...

LMAO. I laugh now but I get angry when my phone does it.

Detroit Runner said...

Adam - that was one of the funnier posts I've seen you put on here. Great post!!!!!

misszippy said...

And some advice...don't comment on blog posts with your iphone! Done it, not pretty.

The Sean said...

the phone really believes that people are using whores a lot...

Pam said...

HA! I have spent HOURS on that web site laughing my ass off. My Droid is just as bad. I texted my friend a couple of nights ago to ask her what kind of SHOES she got... not what kind of SHITS she got.

EricaH said...

Very funny, I may put my auto-correct back on just to see what kind of random stuff i can text to my friends and family.
And welcome to the wonderful world of Iphone. :)

Andrew Opala said...

Treo! So you're the one. Now Sprint/Verizon can finally turn off that part of the network.

Staci said...

Great post. I wanna get an iphone just so that i can get these wicked corrections. Should I be worried that my husband loved the divorce / disney one the most?

Gracie (Complicated Day) said...

That autocorrect website literally had me crying.

Christina said...

I'm in tears laughing so hard. That is the best.

Quix said...

Those are awesome. I turned off my auto correct. :)

Kelley said...

SO funny! It happens to me all the time, and can be embarrassing depending on who you are talking to. I am going to check out that site!

Sarah (A Runner's Heart) said...

This made me laugh out loud! I hate Auto correct most days, but it sure makes life a bit more funny sometimes!

Chanda M. DeFoor said...

Ha, ha! I saw these on an email the other day. I know they're fake, but they cracked me up!

Scrappytbear said...

omg that was the funniest thing! I laughed so hard and Im working so it had to be quietly;) Ive had my share of autocorrect issues but NOTHING like that. I think the camel whore was funniest; why on earth would a phone think THAT was what you meant and change it for you? GREAT laugh!

Al's CL Reviews said...

I can spend hours on that site.

Laura said...

#4 is definitely fake. "Defecating" is spelled wrong. Unless the person regularly uses the word "defacating" and added it to their dictionary...
