I vote bacdiffbetter<-that is what my iPad “corrected” bad to.
I vote bad at iPhone. I do battle with the damned thing multiple times a day but can’t be arsed to turn off the autocorrect feature because I’m too lazy to actually put in punctuation when necessary. So instead I argue with my iPhone and iPad like a crazy person.

Bad at iPhone! I’ve recently ditched apple, but I used to get sooo frustrated when my phone would autocorrect “because” (obviously spelt wrong ala clumsy fingers) to “Bangladesh”…… common!

If an entire sentence is a mess then I usually assume the person is drunk – unless its the middle of the day or something, then I give them the benefit of the doubt. Earlier I was typing and instead of “you” my autocorrect changed it to “Iomega” WTF?! When in my life have I ever typed Iomega into my phone? Seriously? Sometimes it just does ridiculous changes so I tend not to hold it against anyone else that often

Haha!! My stepdad is notorious for doing “word !” and not just on his phone but in general. He does it with all punctuation, like “word .” or “word ?” Drives me nuts. He was wearing a t-shirt one day with a phrase printed on the back and the ending of it had “word !” I said, “you had that t-shirt made, didn’t you?” and he said, “how’d you know??”

haha yeah if the whole sentence is trashed, I assume drunk too. I also usually go by subject matter — if a text or email is completely random AND kind of messed up, then the person MUST be drunk. Like if my mom texts me that the dog misses me (??) then I know she’s drunk
But by that standard, Father-In-Law is drunk roughly 100% of the time. Oh dear, I hope that’s not accurate.

I feel your pain! I know someone who can never just comment on a picture but always, always, takes the conversation off into some random stream of conversational drivel that has nothing at all to do with the picture. Which totally baffles any other innocent viewers!
Oh, and my daughter in law’s grandmother who cannot cope with the simple fact that if you want to “like” something on Facebook you just have to hit the “like” button. So she writes, very carefully, “Grandma likes this”.

Just reads like an autocorrect to me. On our way back from our honeymoon my good friend who is also very sweet and pretty passive was sending some fairly aggressive texts. Something about our cats hating us and being lucky our cat won’t rip DH’s arm off…I asked her straight up if she was drunk LOL. She said no, she was just trying to be funny haha.

I always sound like a drunk on wedding bee. If I’m typing from my phone or iPad it will auto correct to the wildest weirdest things! I know technically that’s not what you were referring to but it reminded me of how I’m sure my post read at times! But I promise I’m not drunk!

ugh, why must people do that!?!? I posted a pregnancy belly picture last week and someone responded “when are you going to come visit DC again??” … so then I was faced with the tough decision of whether or not to indulge the idiot by responding to her total non sequitur question. I already have a policy of leaving stupid jokes hanging there unresponded-to like an unrequited high five … should off-subject comments and questions play by the same rule?? I’m thinking yes.
see, usually I’m a big fan of the straight-up “are you drunk??” route, because most people will at least understand why someone might think their messages sound that way … but with Father-In-Law supposedly being on the wagon, I imagine such a question wouldn’t go over well! Just like pregnant me would be highly offended if someone seriously asked me if I were drunk. So instead we just have to wonder and assume … and seriously, some of the messages he sends … if he’s sober sending those, then I have to worry a little about his state of mind because that shit be CRAZY. STOP TEXTING WITH SIRI, Father-In-Law. WE THINK YOU ARE DRUNK.

That drives me nuts! Don’t they realize that their iPhone will still autocorrect their misspelling even if they just go straight for the punctuation? Apparently not, so I guess we need some kind of psa. Maybe a viral Facebook vid

Typically if someone is drinking and texting they usually text something like “Jane money spoon sings lemon pandas!” would tell me the person was drunk.
If it’s an older person texting or emailing me, it’s usually all in caps.
I just suck at iPhone. My thumbs are too big for such a small screen so I always end up with typos.

Bad at iPhone, for the message you sent. It all hangs together, and it’s not inappropriate/weird/doesn’t have random words included.

Bad at iPhone (or my new phone for that matter!) they do the STRANGEST things!

It’s not even the iPhone’s fault for my mom… She will send emails from her laptop and it will be like “I HAVE GOLF LEAGUE TODAY SO CAN YOU LET THE DOG OUT??? Sorry for all caps I didn’t realize it was on. ttyl”
So why didn’t you just take off the caps lock and go back and re-type that first line with normal letters so I don’t feel like you’re yelling at me???! The voice in my head yells those words whether it was an accident or not… It probably would have taken the same amount of time as typing out the explanation for the caps.
