Don’t you love it when you’re trying to text people and you really want to get your point across about how you feel about a certain situation or a person. And everyone know’s the best way to do that is by the usage of curse words! I’ve done a post in the past where I discussed alternative expletives, but now, I’m talking about the actual curse words. You have to put them in the text because just typing them makes you feel better. And then you press the ‘space’ bar and that’s when one of your worst enemies kicks in: autocorrect!
It automatically changes the word to something that sounds nicer, but lacks the same eloquence that your previous word have had. So, you backspace and try again. Sometimes it works, and you can spell the ‘correct’ word and get your point across. Other times, it refused to acknowledge that ‘f*ck’ is the word you want to use instead of ‘duck’. Another one is ‘shut’ for ‘sh*t’. Then ‘mother trucker’ for ‘mother f*cker’. That and ‘mother forklift’. ‘Damn’ simply drops the ‘n’ and it becomes okay to use.
It’s very funny to watch your phone attempt to fix you as it adjusts your spelling. Quite frequently, I will accidentally send out a text with the autocorrected word in it, and then send another text with the real curse word that I managed to finagle in there. Look phone, just send the message I want to send, and don’t try to tell me what to say.
And on that note, it’s been real!
