Conversations With Mrs. C - Texts From The Edge.

The following text conversation took place this morning, while Mrs. C and I were travelling to work. It was triggered by her phone's auto correct. As we often do, we had to split up and take separate vehicles since there wasn't enough room for the both of us.

So you know, Mrs. C hates auto correct. She uses a lot of text abbreviations and likes to shorten words by leaving letters out. All of this, of course, confuses the hell out of her phone. She asked me to turn the feature off once but I never quite got around to it. And I’m glad I didn't since she gave me something to post.
In case you were wondering, the correct answer is, "no". We didn't.

  2. As I first typed... or think I typed... thank you for making my day while I deal with idiotic guests.

  3. Thank you for PROVING what I've always secretly suspected:
    There CAN actually be a text conversation that I DO find interesting. I thought it could happen, but it seemed kind of like a unicorn. I've seen TONS of horses on social media, but never the unicorn. I get a little twitchy when I see people post screen shots of their phones: they are NEVER funny. This however? This was hilarious.
    I'm not sure if this racist, but Mrs. C sounds Rastafarian in her texts. She sounds like she be jommin, mon.

    1. Actually, she has been considering going Rastafarian for a while now. Not for any religious reasons. She just hates having to fuss with her hair & she thinks dreadlocks will be less high maintenance.

  4. Well, if you're going to have to be stuck in traffic you may as well amuse yourselves.

    I can't send texts half the time because autocorrect changes a word, I change it back, it changes it again, I change it back, it changes it again. . . very stubborn, that autocorrect.

    1. It is. You could always turn it off, though. But, as I pointed out earlier, where's the fun in that?

  7. I like to text my wife like, 10 texts in a row. She loves it. And by loves I mean hates. But that's just how marriage works, right?

    1. You may be right. It's the same way with me & Mrs. C. Only she's the one sending a barrage of texts & I'm the one patiently enduring it.

  8. That's hilarious! AND intriguing! Please make me a robot too. Send it to my secret lair. I'm communicating the address to you telepathically right now? Got it? Good! Will wait by my mailbox for my robot.
