I answer email on my iPhone all the time. It has this nifty auto- typo correct feature which isn't always very helpful. Today I wrote this little tidbit to a potential customer:

"While I do not handle nuts in my commercial kitchen, I don't necessarily avoid ingredients packaged in nut-handling facilities. Additionally, I keep nudists in my other kitchen that could potentially cross-contaminate various surfaces."

Think she'll call?

if you try to type "awww" it auto changes it to "ass" ... try typing that when you're commenting on your friend's picture of their new baby

That's the funniest typo I've read in a long time.

I hope she gives you the benefit of the doubt on the nudists and nuts. icon_smile.gif

OMG that's hilarious.

I hate that feature on my phone, but when I turned it off I missed having the little choice of words show up. lol

Hopefully, your client has been a victim of this herself and will understand.

ya know, if you have nudists in your kitchen, you could augment your income with a live web-cam. Just sayin'... icon_biggrin.gif

Maybe it's just me but, it was sounding questionable from the beginning. Bringing the nudists into the response just tied it (the reply) up in a bow.

I do wash my hands thoroughly after handling nuts. icon_twisted.gif would make one think hmmmmm, eh?
