How many times has it happened that you wanted to type something but autocorrect put you in a really embarrassing situation. For instance, you want to write ‘What the F**k’ but thanks to autocorrect it become ‘What the duck’. Something similar happened to this guy from Texas. Only worse!
Meet Jeet Patel, a resident of San Antonio and freshman at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). His tweet made on September 1 has gone viral on social media with over 129,000 retweets and 200,000 likes. Do you know why? Because autocorrect exists!
He shared the screenshot of a conversation with his mother with a caption that read, “i saw my life flash before my eyes” and we get him because he called his mother a ‘hoe’. Unintentionally, of course.
His mother asked him, “Where are u?” and he said, “coming hoe”. The poor boy wanted to write ‘home’ and immediately corrected himself in the next text that he sent.
As soon as he shared the photo, people started sharing what would have happened if they had said this to their mother and other embarrassing times when autocorrect failed them.

Just in case, you don’t know, hoe means a promiscuous person and doesn’t look like his mother understood the meaning or she found it better to ignore which is a very smart move because she chose not to reply.
