If you own a phone that can do anything beyond just dialing out, you know what I am talking about. The auto-correct mechanism that THINKS it is doing you a big favor, but in reality can sometimes really change the meaning of what you are trying to get across.
Take this text exchange between Nick (my brother-in-law) and I after my sister had a car accident. He sends picture of her in neck brace, and I respond with a seemingly very insensitive "Sweeeet!" sentiment...but in reality that was just the iphone's interpretation of "Awwww..."
Nothing is more annoying than the fact that still, 8 months later, my iPad STILL autocorrects "hanson" to "Chanson". I mean, I get "sweet" to "awwww" because one is a sound and one is an actual word. But can anyone tell me what Chanson means? And why Apple keeps trying to screw me over. I can't tell you how many times I've emailed and signed off with my name as Chanson by accident. It can be really confusing for people.
Anyway, one of my new favorite 'pick-me-up' sites that I go to when I need a good chuckle is called: Damn You Auto-Correct.

Do you have any good auto-correct stories? I want to hear them!
