The Hilarious Horror! 16 Autocorrect and Text Fails from Parents to Kids

I love that my parents have smart phones now and I can text them. I used to call my mom at least once a day — sometimes more, and now I basically am chatting with her all day about nothing and everything. It’s so much easier with having young kids to not have to answer the phone and try to talk while they are climbing on me and screaming.

If you have a smart phone I am sure at some point you’ve encountered an auto-correct fail — when your phone thought you were trying to type something else and really it made no sense. Sometimes it’s confusing, sometimes it’s totally embarrassing but it’s almost always totally funny. As with any new technology, there is a learning curve and it can take some time to get used to all the automating it does for us. I would love to blame it on age …. but I have had my own share of fails when it comes to texting.

Click through to read 16 hilarious text messages between parent & kid — some autocorrect and some TMI (warning: contains some autocorrected or totally-on-purpose ‘bad’ language):
