Don't Forget to Proofread Your Text
I enjoy the convenience of my phone finishing my words for me, but once in a while it isn't all that helpful. I was sending out a text today and didn't read it before pushing the send button. I assumed it said what I wanted it to say since I was sure I typed it all out correctly. However, when I wasn't looking, it filled in one of the words for me to say "dimwit" instead of a person's name! I scrambled to type and send a new text to fix my error. It's a good thing I only text friends and never colleagues. I will have to try remember to read what I type before compulsively pressing the send button from now on.
