When Spell Checkers Attack: Sorry for any incontinence…

Monday, July 31st, 2006

My all-time favorite…and I saw it with my own eyes. Someone was apologizing for the extreme size of an email attachment they had inadvertently sent to a HUGE group of people instead of to the much smaller group they intended. In the second (much smaller) email, they tried to say “sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused you” but it came out horribly, hilariously wrong as: “Sorry for any incontinence this may have caused you.”

Wow…you couldn’t make up anything that funny. And as a friend of mine who saw the same message said, “The ironic part is, I nearly wet my pants laughing so hard.”
