Autocorrect Is Ruining My Life

Necessary disclaimer: My friend Mindy just broke up with her boyfriend and has been down in the dumps for about two weeks, playing Taylor Swift songs incessantly and texting me at three a.m. to talk about the loser.
-------
We are currently in the middle of transitioning to a new computer system at the office and two young men have come down from New York’s headquarters to train us. This morning, Dude #1 was complaining about not having seen much of Miami while being here and his disappointment about leaving tomorrow. Not one to ignore opportunities, I promptly offered my tour guide services and told him to text me tonight, to which he agreed.

(There isn’t really a downside to this situation. For one, I look like the awesome coworker nice enough to take out the IT guys and two, Dude # 1 is totally Mindy’s type.)

(I ween).

I get to the gym around seven and have yet to hear from either of the trainers so I hop on the treadmill and begin daydreaming of the shower and nap that would soon follow my workout. Half an hour later I receive a text from Dude #1 and here's what goes down:
Something tells me it’s going to be a very awkward day at the office tomorrow.

So let me guess what your future post is going to be about, whore.

You went out, got really drunk and then made out with/had sex with/ threw up on a poor sap from New York.

A friend of mine recently slipped up and said that his sister "has beaver eaten at PF Chang's", meaning to say "never eaten". Needless to say, hilarity ensued.

I love my autocorrect, especially that words like fuckwittage, CAntso (wtf is CAntso??) withRUM and Fuckingtoday ARE in the dictionary, while things like plotting are NOT in there.
