WARNING: Adult humor ahead. Apparently, the autocorrect feature on the iPhone has a dirty, dirty mind.

I can confirm this. My iPhone has a mind of its own.

I don't usually click on links to other sites, but this was totally worth it! Thanks for the laughs. I've had a few epic fail autocorrects myself.

Me too... Steve Jobs must think that "HIV" is farrrrr more likely the word I was looking for in normal conversation instead of "his" because it always auto corrects that and plenty of others.

Oh well, the fanbois would tell me that Steve knows best what I really mean to type.

However, I don't recall texting my wife that she left the "God" at home in case she needed driving directions on the other side of town.

I turned auto-correct off.

A friend of mine was horrified when he sent a sexy text to his wife, and found out later his auto-correct changed it to "I want to kick your puppy" She still laughs so hard she cries when she see's anyone sending a text.
Thanks Amorette. That web site is now on my favorites list. Absolutely hilarious!
Another website that some of you may find funny is "textsfromlast night.com". Some very crude content, but I have spewed my beverage of choice all over my monitor, on more than one occasion.
The content can be very crude, so take care if viewing this at work. It's also on my favorites list, and I start everyday reading the updates, and more often than not find myself laughing hysterically.

Friend of mine texted to a co-worker," have you sent your timesheet." iPhone autocorrected to "have you sent your dipsh*t." Fortunately, co-worker had both an iPhone and a sense of humor.

Wait, does the phone correct the text after you've hit send? Surely you're reading the message before you send it.

When on the last word, sometimes the iPhone OS thinks you meant something else, shows the correction and expects you to either take it or veto it. However, if you just hit send it thinks you want the correction, and makes the correction. Resulting in embarrassing text messages.

Like this one from earlier when I was texting a friend. I tried to type "rdy". My Droid always understood that, however not so much with my iPhone...

I for one am very glad that the iPhone does this because that site has reduced me to tears and snot on multiple occasions.
