Texting Mistakes: The Comic Relief of Auto Correct

This is the first text I’ve ever received from my dad, and here’s hoping his texting skills don’t get any better, because the WTF hilarity of his mangled message helped snap me from a pretty foul mood on the 4th of July.

This is the first text I’ve ever received from my dad, and here’s hoping his texting skills don’t get any better, because the WTF hilarity of his mangled message helped snap me from a pretty foul mood on the 4th of July. (The following exchange comes courtesy of my mom’s iPhone, and her nickname is The Camel, the reason for which I’ll eventually get around to writing.)

I’d sent a photo of the flag I’d hung up, one of less than a handful I saw all day on the 4th of July in San Francisco (see below post for more on that). And when my patriotic-but-digitally-deficient dad’s mangled response hit my screen — I could just picture him wrangling with the touchpad (“What in the hell? What in the hell?”) and how to just send the *&^%$#@ thingĀ  — I couldn’t stop laughing, especially the “score you” part (though it’s obviously one of several auto correct mistakes).

He was so befuddled by the whole ordeal he forgot what he even meant by that. Here’s hoping you get a chuckle out of it, too.

(Got any hilarious texting mistakes of your own? Please share in the comments section. And here’s how to take a snappy screenshot of your iPhone like the one below: Press the power button on the top of the phone and the menu button on the bottom at the same time. Presto. All those texting mistakes are captured so the rest of the world can laugh, too.)
