“Autocorrect can be your worst enema”

"Autocorrect can be your worst enema” is a jocular line that has been printed on many gift items, such as T-shirts and coffee mugs. “Sometimes autocorrect can be your worst enema” was on Twitter on August 21, 2012.

“Autocorrect makes me type things I didn’t Nintendo” and “Hey autocorrect, quit tampering with my curse words, you mother forklift” are similar sayings.


Wikipedia: Autocorrection
Autocorrection, also known as text replacement, replace-as-you-type or simply autocorrect, is an automatic data validation function commonly found in word processors and text editing interfaces for smartphones and tablet computers. Its principal purpose is as part of the spell checker to correct common spelling or typing errors, saving time for the user. It is also used to automatically format text or insert special characters by recognizing particular character usage, saving the user from having to use more tedious function.
