    Be real careful before you hit that Send button
    I learned a valuable lesson this week and fortunately it was only with my brother. We both like to restore old cars, he has a 67 Mustang and I have two 72 VW's. I'm still getting used to using my new Sprint EVO 4G phone and was sending him a text message that that I adjusted my clutch cable today. Because my phone tries to guess the word you are typing or because it could not find "clutch" or maybe I misspelled "clutch", what he got was entirely different.

    My understanding is he dropped the phone, from laughter, after reading my message to him which evidently said, "I adjusted my crotch cable today"

    Lesson learned, never hit send until you have read your message!

    Oh, that would be classic. Me, 50's and gray haired, tight black pants, silver glove.

    Not a pretty picture to be sure! Might even it the tabloids!

    Speaking of which, you all probably never would have guessed I had my name printed in the National Inquirer, would you? Yep, when I was a teenager, back in 1976, I submitted a photo they published and got $50 for it. Woooohoooo! I was famous (for a day). Actually, it was my mother that suggested I take the picture, she submitted it and we split the $50.

    Sadly, I think she still subscribes to that publication!

    My Droid does that and drives me crazy. If it wasn't hard enough getting my big thumbs to only hit 1 key at a time but now I have to keep checking to see what the phone is doing.

    I have ALMOST sent messages even more embarrassing than that. Not a big fan of the auto-complete...

    I hear that. Whenever I'm trying to text my fingers hit numerous buttons. I usually have to use my pinky to type.
    Then I want to throw the phone when I keep trying to type a word and it keeps adding something different! Smart phone my #ss! If it's so smart then type the message for me, LOL!
