Autocorrect Isn't Always

   Several years ago, my youngest daughter and I were traveling back from moving our oldest daughter into her new digs.  My husband was working and so couldn't go along but he kept up with us by texting.  Don't you just love texting? It comes in so handy letting family members know where you are, what you are doing and if you are okay? 
  Well, usually it does.  In this case, my daughter was driving and my hubs had texted asking where we were, he was going to prepare supper for us when we arrived and was asking for our wheareabouts.  At the time I was still a little new at texting with a new smart phone. But it turns out it wasn't so very smart. I typed in "We passing through Festus."  But the "smart" phone didn't recognize the town of Festus and for reasons still beyond my understanding to this day, changed my type into "We're passing through Death."
  Well, you talk about getting a rise out of my husband!  He immediately called me and asked what was going on!
  So when society is telling us how to live and what is right and what is wrong, it's kind of like using Autocorrect on your phone. It's not always "smart" to listen to automatic society and it's suggestions. You need to follow your conscience and your morals!
