I didn't know how frustrating it could be until my mom sent me a text one day (from her iPhone) asking me to help her with her sesame. Earlier, she had been talking about work, so the sesame request was a bit odd. Plus she has diverticulosis and sesame seeds are one thing she needs to avoid.
Perhaps that was the request for help?
As a side note, if you'd asked me yesterday, how many times can you use 'sesame' in a paragraph before it becomes annoying, I would have said, "Um. Maybe three times." It would appear I would have guessed correctly.
I sent her another text asking how exactly I could help, when she texted back: "R.E.S.U.M.E. Damn auto correct!!!"
I never gave the auto correct feature much thought until I finally got my own iPhone late last month. I went to text my daughter, Jessica. Two things you should know:
1. Her nickname is Juicy*.
2. We have silly words that we used with just each other.
She is at work or something. I text her, "I need some juicy lubs (loves)."
And before I can stop it, damn auto correct sends, "I need some juicy lube."
Auto correct is now off and shall remain so forever.
*When she was about two, she hated to be helped to do anything. She would say, "NO Juicy do!" Ergo, the name stuck.
