When the Auto Correct Mishaps Aren’t so Funny

Just three days after a deadly shooting at Chardon High School in Chardon, Ohio, a student sent a text to a person that he thought was a friend. The intended text message was “gunna be at the west hall on Tuesday,” but the actual message came out saying “Gunman at the west hall on Tuesday”. Unfortunately, the student sent the text message to a wrong number and the receiver immediately alerted the authorities. Talk about bad timing.

Even a simple text message between family members can easily be misinterpreted when words are unintentionally corrected by a phone.
