Most smartphones have automatic spell-checking software that corrects, suggests, and substitutes as you type — but if you’re not careful, it can change your text message to something you didn’t mean to say.

I received a text from a friend that said, “please send me the esophagus guy’s email.” I replied that I had no idea what he was talking about, since I haven’t had anybody check my throat or digestive system in a long time. He texted back that he was trying to get in touch with someone from the World Series Of Poker, which is why he had originally typed “please send me the WSOP guy’s email” only to have the software botch the message.
