Can anyone tell me why we need a simple little phone or an Ipad to tell us what it is we are trying to say? Personally I find it a little intimidating. I type my version of Hydrangea. Maybe my spelling is a bit off, but not to the point where the recipient of my text can't understand. I look before I send, and it now says--Hydrant, just like magic! Not even close! It has changed from a beautiful flower to something on which dogs do their business. Now just imagine the sentence combinations!!
"Your hydrants are so very beautiful, that I stop to admire them while walking my dog."
Well, we know the dog does only he doesn't show his admiration with his eyes.
There are times when my daughter texts me things that have my jaw on the table first and then laughing till I cry. Honestly, wouldn’t you rather everyone think you are a poor speller or prone to typos than unintended risqué comments? And they call them SMARTPHONES! Maybe they should be re-named smart aleck phones.
I am sure there must be a way to shut this unwanted service off, but finding it when you are electronically challenged, is well, a challenge. So I guess I will just have to be diligent in checking everything before I send.
I say join the campaign to stop the auto correct right now. Tell your friends, write to your congressmen, just make sure you look before you BLEEP and your WORLDS haven’t been CHARGED…otherwise known as...look before you leap and your words haven’t been changed!
