Why We Split Up: The Terrible Road That Led To A Difficult Decision

After a long, complicated relationship, autocorrect and I have parted ways. It was a very difficult decision for both of us, but in the long run we’ll be happier.

I know autocorrect has been seeing a lot of other people, and has developed a rather sketchy reputation. But that’s not why we split.

We just realized that we don’t see the world the same way. When I type its, i mean its. I grew tired of constantly being told that “it’s” was a possessive. It’s not.

Perhaps the final straw was the constant bickering over autocorrect’s constant efforts to make me use “we’ll” instead of “well”.

Oh well!

We tried a number of things to make life better. For a short time, manual shortcuts worked to jumpstart our relationship. In the end it just wasn’t enough.

I wish autocorrect well, and hope it finds someone special.
