Page 194 of 365: A Rant About Autocorrect



Autocorrect gets on my last nerve.

Sometimes, it saves me from making stupid mistakes because I have giant hands and I can’t type properly by it annoys me far more often than it helps.

As someone who’s obsessed with bands and wants to travel with them one day, I use the word ‘tour’ a lot. Autocorrect changes it to ‘your’, which makes sense. But when I’ve gone back and changed it three times, I’d have thought autocorrect might have figured out that I actually mean ‘tour’.

I pity people actually on tour that use the word infinitely more than me.

It’s really annoying when you’ve typed a word and it’s only one letter wrong – you assume autocorrect would guess the word you actually meant, right? No! It comes up with a brand new word and you have to start all over again.

It wastes all the time it’s meant to save!

Phones have developed a lot since the 9 key flip phones, but autocorrect is like a developed predictive text – supposedly helpful, but just as annoying.
