Can You Lose Friends With Spell Check? - Depends

6/18/2009   Comment on This

Ok, the guy really wasn’t a friend. Really, he was somebody sending mass emails and I was explaining to him the problem of his ways.

“Nobody is getting these emails!” I explained, “These go to me only... and since they aren’t addressed properly, I delete them and assume they are junk.”

So, he replies:spell check can be dangerous so you should always wear depends to be safe

“Sorry for any incontinence.”

I know that he meant "inconvenience" rather than incontinence. I could have been a nice guy and let it slide – but that wouldn’t be the “Man’s Show” thing to do – would it? I need to maintain my smart ass edge to hold my own with Pinkus.

So I reply:

“Fortunately, I haven’t experienced any incontinence – (LOL, spell check can be dangerous).”

So now, some guy thinks I’m an ass for busting his balls… And I am. That’s a fair assessment.

Bottom Line:
  • When you use spell check, pay attention or you might make a mess in your pants

  • Better yet, learn how to spell and don’t rely on spell check

  • Above all, be extra careful when corresponding with me

Got an incontinence or spell check story for me – tell me about it
