Just for Fun: Funniest Auto Correct Text Messages of the Year

So, this isn’t exactly “library”. But, I couldn’t resist sharing this piece from Mashable – TextingDamn You Auto Correct: 11 Funniest Texts of 2012‘.  There are some pretty good ones here, but be warned, there are some that are not for the faint of heart!

Although it isn’t “library” exactly, something important could be taken away from these oh, so embarrassing, texts. Consider discussing embarrassing auto-correct texts with students and then remind them to:

1) ALWAYS proofread, whether it’s a text, email, or research paper

2) NEVER trust auto-correct or spell-check; it’s the writer’s job to ensure that what they’ve written is spelled correctly and/or grammatically correct!

Just my two cents!
