Hi AutoCorrect! How’s it going today? Got a sec? Can you do me a favor?
If you ever catch me typing the letter “u” on its own it was definitely a typo, 100%, and could you just go ahead and make it a capital “I” for me?
So if you catch me writing, for example…
u don’t know
…could you toss me an…
I don’t know
We have the flippin’ technology to fix literally my most common typo, but catering to those folks means AutoCorrect has to stay broken. These people — who in all likelihood are decent humans who don’t eat babies — are the reason that phone keyboards can’t fix this very obvious typo for me.
Look, I’m not even trying to inflict my good-spellin’ lifestyle on everybody else, honest. Make it a toggle. “🗹 I graduated second grade.”
I eagerly await this important innovation.

On the flip side, my AutoCorrect keeps going a bit too far in changing “were” to “we’re” no matter what the context.
Mine has actually been doing the opposite to me lately. Otto is so dumb.
