Autocorrect mistakes are a bizarre phenomenon of modern life, and they’ve happened to pretty much all of us at some stage. Whether it’s a mom sending a totally unintentional sexual text to a family member or an accidental confession from a boyfriend, autocorrect fails can be super embarrassing – but they’re also often hilarious.
