Why does my autocorrect hate me?

Postby Enigma » Sat Jan 7, 11:27 2017

My autocorrect appears to be on a mission to make me look like a pretentious asshole. I've been battling it for a while now on it's weird idea that every time I write this I really mean thus. Now it's decided that every time I write sick I really mean dick. How does this happen? I almost never write thus or dick!?

Anyways my phone clearly actively dislikes me.

This is amazing. Mine does the thus thing too and I don't think I've ever typed thus in my life.

Mine did it. I had to go into my language and input settings and tell the phone's spell checker to chill the fuck out.

It kept wanting to misspell names.

I've taught mine quite a bit but it was a struggle with settings in the beginning.

It still autocorrects to ducking though. It is never ducking.
Ugh, I'm tired of my signature.

Also, when I finish the middle suggested word and begin a new sentence, I get: I love you too much.

I have taught swype many colorful words... I also do not allow it to autocorrect a damn thing.

My auto correct has shown me how often I discuss ducks as it always corrects to fucks (I may discuss ducks often but I swear like a sailor)

On my phone, whenever I type 'autocorrect' it changes it to 'Autocorrecf'. I've also noticed that when my fingers are cold it seems to make weirder corrections.
