“What idiot called it ‘car repair’ and not autocorrect?”

"Autocorrect” doesn’t correct autos, but there are jokes. This was posted on Twitter by Fridge Boy on June 22, 2014:

“What idiot called it ‘car repair,’ and not autocorrect?”


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 functions.

There should be a car repair place called AutoCorrect.
Or Auto Carwrecked.
