Friday FAIL

More spelling mishaps from around the interwebs.

So that's the secret of those popular blogs that get thousands of hits a day.

 A typo or a little help from AutoCorrect?

 This is downright scary. Where was this software made?

Sometimes it's just not worth the effort.

Curse you, AutoCorrect!

From Hermione's Heart


DelFonte said...

Pity autocorrect doesn't have a spankable bottom, it would get a right walloping.
Yep as I suspected - it tried to autocorrect spankable too :)

Callie said...

LOL, As an English teacher these sorts of things drive me crazy.


abby said... a sad way!
hugs abby

Very funny, but also a little scary.

I really hate auto correct when I am typing in a word verification for a comment while using my iPhone or iPad.


Hermione said...

DelFonte - Too funny! Spankable must not be in Blogger's vocabulary.

Callie - Me too!

Abby - Very sad.

Joey - that would be SO annoying!


Roz said...

LoL Hermione, these are great. Agree with DF on auto correct! It drives me crazy! Me've LoL


Aimless Rambling said...

I do hate auto correct.

I must confess to using "quickie" spellings when I'm texting.

Definitely Friday Fails though

ronnie said...


I really do enjoy your spelling mishaps. Thanks.


Kenzie said...

Lol, oh wow, gotta love being fired over text!

Years ago I bought myself a book. It has been a very well used book, I have read it many, many times. It is called a DICTIONARY. Don't they make these any more ?
By the way Hermione, I loved your comment on my blog, you're as cheeky as I am. 'back into the swing of things'. Good one.
Kind regards


Erica said...

Ha! Maybe I should start making typos in my blog. :-)

I think Autocorrect blows -- never use it and have disabled it on my phone. As I mentioned before, it turned Erica into Pericardium.

And you're right, it's not worth the time trying to correct people. Unless they want to be corrected, of course.

Irishey said...

I definitely can tell the auto-correct on my new phone is different than any other I've ever run across. It's stubbornly stupid.

I think I would choose being fired over being Fred still working for the nimnoid boss. Me've worked 4 2 many of those loooosers. ;-)

Minielle Labraun said...

I have a hard time texting quickly so I use shortcuts now! (shame on me) It may also have something to do with the 'OLD as the earth' cell phone I use after flushing my iphone down the toilet.

violinwidow said...

I loathe auto correct. I think the programmers needed auto correct while programming it.

Hermione said...

Roz - I've never seen Me've anywhere before.

Sunny - So do I. It's very annoying.

Ronnie - Thanks. They're my favourite kind of FAIL.

Kenzie - What a jerk that boss is.

Gary - Yes, they do still make dictionaries. I have several different ones.

Glad you picked up on my little innuendo about H. :D

Erica - It's annoying on my iPad too. I'm currently doing an editing job for someone whose first language is not English. The spelling is quite creative at times.

Irishey - I agree; boss is a loser.

Minelle - Shortcuts are handy sometimes. I once dropped my phone into a toilet. It was a work phone so I had to retrieve it. Yuck!

Tara - I quite agree!

Cute the text where he abbreviated things reminded me of my text to my brother..he hates when I do it and says I can't spell... As for the typos on the blog if that is true I should have 1000 hits lol

autocorrect is more of a pain in the bottom than a spanking... DISABLE DISABLE...
Hate to be an English teacher when students are spelling nowadays...
bottoms up
