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..
