I swear sometimes I feel like I’ve done the dumbest shit possible and I don’t know why I did it. For example I posted about a G23 I just bought and for some reason when I mentioned the night sights I spelled it sites. I’m far from a spelling bee champ but I know the difference between sight and site. Somehow I realized my mistake several hours later while trying to go to sleep.
Either I must be accidentally on some mind altering narcotics or I’m just getting old and the Jack Daniels is catching up.
That whole “your” and “you’re” thing is one of my pet language peeves, but just recently I caught myself using the wrong one. Karma, I guess, for criticizing others.
“Most men … can seldom accept the simplest and most obvious truth if it … would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions … which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabrics of their lives.”
— Leo Tolstoy
I understand your concern. I rarely read a post before I send it off, only to revisit that post and realize auto correct or auto fill decided to insert a different spelling or entirely different word.
Now, I must reread this post!

I usually get it rite, no make that write, no, screw it, I get it correct most of the time when I type it myself.
Sometimes the auto-spell, auto-complete, thing gets screwy and I might not notice it.

I find that I type “you” when I mean to use “your”. I will review an e-mail before sending it and have to correct it. I figure I'm just lazy.

I often times type "the the" leaving out the subject. No idea why.

When I spell something incorrect, it's usually so wrong that there is no way for my electronics to assist me.
