All of these autocorrects happened in real life, haha! I am distrustful of technology. Does it really help us? I have to give credit here to my sweet hubby JT. I asked him, "If you were going to insult autocorrect, what would you call it?" He said, "A Know-It-All." Oh gosh, it kind of is one! I cringed a little this morning typing this up. I don't really have that great of grammar, but I have been referred to as a Grammar Nazi at times. Oops. I hope I'm not as big of a jerk as autocorrect. My one jerky behavior is correcting folks younger than me about who wrote songs. I know that I probably come off super old. Oh well. I digress.
Texting has become a big part of my life
It’s the main communication as a friend and wife
No one sends out any greeting cards
Handwritten letters are now avant-garde
Not many want to get on the phone to talk
Oh, Apple was smart and created a perfect defect
It gets us to pay attention…and it’s called…autocorrect!
There are times autocorrect has possessed my phone
I’m pretty sure I’m not alone
It turned “an” or “at” into “AF” (as f*ck)
It turned “trekking” into “truck”
It turned “hahaha” into “hargahargea,” not even a real word
Then, it did this one, you may have never heard
“Intermittent fasting” turned into “intermittent farting,” something we all do
There’s some others, but well, I think they’re too taboo
Oh, autocorrect, you’re such a rude jerk!
You are a know-it-all, I’m not impressed with your handiwork!
I know I sound old and complaining
I just find technology to be draining
It just wastes, not saves time
Hours turn into years lost, such a crime
I take some breaks for my sanity
I’ve lost some hope in humanity
Devices, screens, and robots are taking over the world
I contemplate becoming an analog girl!
