Have you ever seen that segment on The Ellen DeGeneres Show called "Clumsy Thumbsy"? She shows text messages where autocorrect got the best of the message. My favorite is a dad sending a message text to his child that he and his mother were getting divorced. The child is upset and the dad responds "DISNEY! We're going to Disney! Stupid autocorrect!"
Well, I had my own version of clumsy thumbsy this week. I was trying to text Shawn to tell him that I saw a bucking horse in a pasture. My husband loves horses and I knew he'd be excited about that. I was using the text to speech function on my phone, which is usually great. This is the result.
Attempt #1: I saw a bucking horse in a Pastor today. . .
grrr, pasture, not PASTOR! OK, we'll try field instead.
Attempt #2: I saw a King horse in field today. . .
Well, that doesn't make any sense at all!
Attempt #3: I saw a F***ing horse in a field today. . .
Attempt #4: F***ing, f***ing, f***ing!
(Yep, that's me trying to say bucking, bucking, bucking!)
I give up!
