I’m Stumped

No Shot

I may have posted on this before, but there is little doubt left that my phone’s spell check has an agenda. First off, there are some words it doesn’t like me to say. And I have no idea why. If I type the word “pissed” it autocorrects to “kissed” 100% of the time. As a result, many people in my life are likely trying to figure out why so many things kiss me off and what that even means. And just when I think it has the profanity sensibility of a pearl-clutching grandmother, it just autocorrected the word “shot” to the one word for excriment that we all randomly decided was cursing. It wasn’t a typo, I actually watched as I typed “shot” and saw it change….which frankly kissed me off. Though, that one has led to a couple funny accidental texts while playing my on line game of H-O-R-S-E, as I commonly have to remind the other players to “take a shot, already.” This has led to some of my friends taking umbrage at my level of involvement in their bodily functions. Understandably.

So, the presence of an agenda is clear. The substance of that agenda remains shrouded.

Then there is the stubborn refusal to autocorrect commonly mispelled words. If I type “thier” instead of “their” or transpose the i and e in friend, it refuses to autocorrect and instead underlines the word and then claims to be unable to find a suggested alternative. I suspect, this is just to taunt me.

I don’t know what evil is at work with within apple, but it is some bullshot and I’ve about had enough.
