Prepare yourself to run across a lot of autocorrect issues on this list. It causes more problems than it resolves like it did in this embarrassing story about pot vs. PTO.

A lot of us have these generic templates for when we have to send out messages. However, it’s important to fill them out properly because if not, it’s super embarrassing.

The word pooping will kind of always be pretty funny. So, the idea that your phone changed popping into pooping for a professional situation is straight-up hilarious.

Yeah, this is probably the kind of correction that we’ve all run into. It’s so easy to make this mistake. To do it on a piece regarding Bill Cosby? That’s the icing on the cake.

Sometimes, it’s the tiniest of spelling errors that completely change things. A sweet email signature became something terrible with just one different letter.

Thank goodness this person was cool with who they sent the email to. It could have been a huge disaster if that wasn’t the case. The authorities would’ve probably been involved.

On its own, the thought of Danielle being autocorrected to Da Jelly is funny enough. When you consider that the person discussing it is named Danielle, it becomes hilarious.

People named Stan are probably really used to this issue. Satan is such a close name to Stan. That being said, we all may have felt this way about a co-worker at some point.

Another case of how vastly different a message can become if you simply change one letter. These two reasons for a day off are not at all the same thing.

Let’s be honest. We have all kind of been this person. You make a mistake, try to make up for it and then still make the mistake again. Then you almost do it again.

As you can tell, most of this list revolves around typos. However, they’re usually just a one time mistake. Not here. This person had a mistake in their email signature for several years.

This one turned out to actually be pretty cool. They signed each email by saying “beast” instead of “best” and you can’t help but appreciate how cool that would be.

Being in a relationship with a co-worker can have some negative effects. This wasn’t a major problem but imagine how confused everyone was at the guy who sent them an email saying, “NANDO.”

This one is a fail that the person didn’t set themselves up for. Fiona was getting called Mary, tried to correct people, and was still getting called Mary. We want to know how and why this happened.

Another victim of the dreaded autocorrect. However, this has to be one of the worst we can think of. It changed something on his resume and now all of those employers think he’s weird.

It’s kind of amazing that some folks think like this. Isidra didn’t call out the person who mispronounced her name, she simply said it properly at the end. Yet she still got in trouble.

This is why they always say it’s a good idea to not assume. The embarrassment that must come with being corrected after so long is tough to imagine.

We’re with the guy who got this email. It’s highly intriguing to know just what a boobkinder would be. There are so many possibilities and all are interesting.

We leave you with one of the most haunting possibilities. A phone automatically changed “so much” into something so problematic it is just upsetting.
