    Another thread got me thinking about something that happened when I first got my smartphone.

    I was sending a text message to one of my online students about a quiz. I meant to say:

    "Hi, XXX, this is Ms. BXXXXX. I was just checking to see if . . ."

    I hit send just as I realized that the autocorrect had change the message to:

    "Hi, XXX, this is Ms. Bartender. I was just checking to see if . . . "

    I was mortified and quickly sent a follow up text explaining that the autocorrect on my phone had changed my name to Ms. Bartender. Luckily, the student thought it was funny.

    Anyone else have any autocorrect stories?
