Hi all! How are you doing this Friday? It's the first Friday in June!! So exciting!! :D And June is the beginning of summer. And I LOVE summer!
Today I have a different kind of post. I've actually had the idea for a while, but it seemed that every week I went to post it, I had a different post already planned. So y'all get it today! ;) Without further ado. . .a letter to autocorrect!
I have a feeling this short note may be brutal, so I want to make sure that I state right off that I know your intentions are good. Please, keep this in mind as you go though the rest of the letter.
First off, I want to ask you why you insist on thinking that you are better at spelling than I am? Not to say there aren't times I misspell a word, but most of the words you insist are wrong are actually right. (And I also have spell-check to help me with the spelling thing.) No, I'm not trying to say Eire, I am trying to say Eira. And please stop changing Andi to And I.
And when I'm writing, please do not persist in changing every foreign word or foreign sounding name to something that is not even remotely similar. I KNOW WHAT I'M DOING! Just because it may not be in English doesn't mean you have to change it. You don't need to understand everything I'm doing. I don't need you to be reading over my shoulder, criticizing every word I write. That's what my sisters are for. (But they also say nice things, too. Unlike you.)
You also tend to distract me from what I'm trying to write since you are forever changing my words. And let me assure you, that is something you don't want. Bad things happen to those who interrupt my writing.
One last thing and I promise I will do my best to stop. I do not appreciate you trying to change the tenses. Yes, it is supposed to be has, not have, and doesn't is not supposed to be don't. Also, trust me, "all that" is not supposed to be changed to "that entire".(How is that even similar?)
Okay,I will stop for now. Please, let it also be noted that I would appreciate it if you would keep your intrusions into my life at a minimum.
A writer who has to put up with you.
P.S Every one and everyone mean two very different things. Please stop trying to convince me they are the same.
So tell me. *sits back and folds hands* Have you had any run-ins with autocorrect? If so, what were your impressions after the first encounter? If you appreciate this technological feature, please let me know! Maybe I can learn how to enjoy it, if only a little. ;)
Have a wonderful weekend!
