I ADORE my MAC to pieces – and I mean pieces. BUT there is something wrong with the spelling functions.

The spelling dictionary that is installed is WEAK and that is not good for someone who can’t spell (me). But what’s WORSE is this auto-correct that it does. For example, Liam always gets turned into lima (like lima bean) and I never check before I send emails. For some reason, the Mac won’t “learn” all words, so matter how many times I try to add common slang that I use (or proper names it doesn’t recognize) – it won’t let me.

I can give you a million examples – but here’s an email from yesterday:

Ok so seriously — I don’t even know what I was supposed to be saying. A 350 poinsettias? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN??? That is CRAZY. But I sent it and my friend probably thinks I’m insane. Sorry for the curse btw.

And here’s one my husband sent me.

So I went on Twitter and commented about how I HATE the auto-correct on Mac and someone sent me a website which is quite possibly the funniest thing I’ve seen all year. It’s called ‘Damn You Autocorrect’ and the examples they have online are hysterical!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please go check it out! So funny. I’m seriously in my office laughing out loud!!!!

  1. I remember something like that on failbook. Someone posted a status “eating human” using T9 on his cellphone. Turned out the guy actually ate gumbo.

  2. Vera– as always thanks for sharing GREAT new sites and fun stuff for readers like me to check out- wow HOW lucky is this site to get your shout out-out seal of approval! I’m TOTALLY jealous:)

  3. A friend of mine told me about this site recently as well, and I LOVE it! For some reason, just the knowledge of this site makes all of my auto-corrects that much funnier. LOL Thanks for the laugh today!
