"Damn You, Autocorrect!"
If you own an iPhone, BlackBerry, Droid, or any smartphone, there's a good chance you've screamed that phrase out at least once. In Damn You, Autocorrect!, Pop-culture blogger Jillian Madison shows you are not alone.
Filled with submissions from readers of her popular website, this laugh-out-loud funny book features cringe-worthy exchanges with parents, friends, significant others, and co-workers that contain some of the most unintentionally hilarious--and mortifying--mistakes ever caused by Autocorrect. Inside, you'll find a husband who tells his wife that he just "laid" (paid) the babysitter, a dad who tells his daughter that he and her mom are going to "divorce" (Disney), and many more epic texting fails too raunchy to list here.
Whether you love technology, texting humor, or taking just a little bit of pleasure in the misfortune of others, Damn You, Autocorrect! will leave you laughing until you cry, and thankful that nothing this embarrassing has happened to you. Yet.
Jillian Madison is the founder of Pophangover.com, a snarky pop culture blog network that launched in the summer of 1999. The site has been visited by tens of millions of people, and has grown into one of the Internet's premiere destinations for clever original humor and pop culture news. Pophangover content is constantly retweeted by celebrities and referenced by the Huffington Post, AOL's Pop Eater, CNN, and VH1's Best Week Ever. Sadly, Madison is also an Autocorrect victim herself (she once invited her friends over for a night of fellatio, rather than gelato). She lives in Orange, CT.
