Typo Terrors…!!


Imagine you wanted to call someone as “Ma Devi” and ended up typing “MuDevi”… 😳

And you realize only after you get the reaction from the other side…

Especially in this age of touch-phones, iphones, and inbuilt spellcheckers…  the blunders that can be committed are innumerable and infinite…

Now I completely agree with mouli’s one liner that says “Ecstasy and guilt follow one after the other.. Only I would like to make it Ecstasy and Embarrassment… oh welll.. In the ecstasy of pulling someone’s leg you write something.. only to later be embarrassed at what the word/sentence went out at…

Sigh..!!! yeaaa.. That’s what typos do..

Not just TouchPhones even mails/OCS or any means of communication for that matter…

So here are some real-life incidents that made the writer (not me you sillies… but those who wrote them) blush a deep beetroot red with embarrassment..

She wanted to say “Auditioned” and I knw she’s gonna kick me wen she sees this post….  sorry gal 😛

    Nice collection of typos. I am a moderator for a discussion group for senior citizens. In a welcome post to a new lady subscriber I wrote “You will soon start getting massages. If you don’t pl let me know”. Hell broke, especially as she was introduced by her husband!

  8. Samik says:

    Oh man !!! I have “typo” like evertime i chat… its just that i cant contract…. OH SHITTTT COntrol 😛 myself…. and it appends in itselffff…

    DAMN! it should be happens in place of appends!!!

  9. Good collection & I very much agree with your friend’s “Damaging” philosophy 😛
    I guess if we all learned how to type, typos would reduce considerably.I make the most of my index fingers and hence the typos… 🙂

  10. I feel a little guilty laughing at your expense, but this truly is hilarious…..

    And it’s important to know that today technology, which was supposed to have made all this easier for us has made it such a pain at times, and we have to be extra careful every time. Of what use is such technology???
