Autocorrect (Damn You!)

I recently learned of the "Damn You Autocorrect" web site, which captures some of the funniest instances of the auto correct function on iPhones and Android phones. Autocorrects primary purpose is as a spell checker that corrects common spelling or typing errors, which in theory saves time for the user. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on one's perspective), the autocorrect features on smart phones sometimes makes improper corrections, occasionally leading to some hilarious posts. This has given rise to websites, such as "Damn You Autocorrect," where people post and share humorous or embarrassing cases of improper autocorrections. Since these are often "inappropriate," I won't post any here (plus, they take up a lot of space). Instead, you can click here and check the site out for yourself.
