Otto Correct has made his way into my life. Many of the things I type would be much more interesting if I didn’t correct what Mr. Correct has typed for me. It is worse when I do a voice to text message, but some of the typing messages do get the attention of Otto.
Otto Correct has put naval orangutans on my shopping list. I didn’t bother to fix it to oranges, because I knew what it meant, and I kind of found it humorous.
On the second day of the workweek, I sent a friend a message to have a Happy Toadstool! I guess Otto thought that Tuesdays were boring, not happy, and toadstools made more sense to him.
I’ve wished my cousin a Happy Birdbath on the anniversary of her birth. I just sent it that way because she understands me. Poor woman. Understanding what’s going on in my head is a full time job. She seems to have it down pat.
I was explaining that closies count only in house shows. Well, that and horse shoes, I guess.
I think one of the things that Otto Correct enjoys most is attempting to embarrass me. You don’t know how many times I have tried to type, “see previous text” and actually almost send “see penis text.” Feel honored if you get one of those. It means that I don’t embarrass around you too easily.
If Otto Correct comes to visit you, please feel free to send his humorous changes to your texts and emails. Sometimes he’s just sending you much needed laughs. We all can use more laughs. Share them!
These are reasons that I don’t usually lend books I have not read or that I want back. I don’t know that I’d go as far as death, but being annoyed and never lending to that person again would be the punishment from me.
Papers would be so much more fun if proofreaders made more interesting notations, such as those in the illustration below. I think the “add mustache” and “word tornado” should definitely be used more often.
I was the last customer for one of the grocery store checkers, but I didn’t know it yet. He was dealing with the woman in front of me in the express lane. The lady was insisting that 14 food items and 20 bottles of wine counted as 15 items or less. Then she took forever getting her payment out, and insisted on bagging her groceries herself. With the six foot rule, it took forever.
Another checker came up behind me and closed the line and told me that the checker is off for the day after me. I told her I’m always a little off. She walked away laughing
When I got to the checker with my single bag of tomatoes, I told the checker that I was going to be his favorite customer of the day. He said “yes! The last one!” He got it! I was surprised. I only had a card with me, so I ended up charging $.62 on it, which annoyed me, but he took it with a smile. At least I made his day end on a positive note.
