I have a love/hate relationship with auto-correct. I do tend to make silly typing mistakes, liek we all do (see what I did there!) And it corrects them for me- usually. I am also not the best speller on the planet, so the spell check option has been a resource I rely on.
But then there are those times when Jae is spelled J-a-e, not J-a-r (my daughter’s nickname is Jae). Arrgh! Yesterday I was typing a note and I thought I typed “o-u-t”. After I clicked send, I reread the note and it said “up”, what??? My guess is that I omitted the “o” so the computer helped me out… by replacing “ut” with “up”.
I like the old fashioned, underline the questionable word in red, then let me decide how or if to change it. What’s up with this computer thinking it has better word choice than I do? Changing the word as I am typing along, without warning nonetheless, is not for me. So darn u auto-correct! You are a blessing and a curse!
