DAMN YOU, AUTOCORRECT! A student at a technical college sent a text
message: “Gunna be at west hall today.” West Hall is a combination
middle and high school in Gainesville, Ga. There were two problems with
the message: he sent it to the wrong number, and his phone auto-
corrected the spelling of the first word — to “gunman”. The alarmed
recipient called police, who advised the school to go into lockdown to
deal with the apparent threat. Once the message was tracked down to the
sender and it became apparent that it was all a mistake, the lockdown
was lifted. (RC/Gainesville Times) …And to anyone who can type on a
phone without ever making a mistake, we say this: You’re a better man
than I am, Gunman Din.
