Spell checker sucks. But how about voice recognition. I spend more time correcting things than it would take to just type it out. Grump....GP

Oops, fixed it. Not easy to get things right while on a rant. Its why I haven't called the phone company back yet, I need to calm down before I can speak to those people. Don't need to make the situation worse.

Voice recognition is terrible. It manages to somehow feel more burdensome while doing physically less. Is this a paradox? I don't know, but I hate it! Just let me use a keyboard, a controller, or a mouse!

p.s. I'm a millenial btw

I get texts from the wife all the time like this - how do I change the AC setting, my cell phone/computer/iPad isn't working right, the [thing] is making a funny noise, my car is doing [something she thinks it shouldn't], etc. I was a tanker, so I was trained to break things and blow them up as well. I can be in the middle of meetings, etc., and I get buzzed all the time with text messages - "call me because..." Grump.

You should limit your purported expertise in said subject matter. If your reply to all queries was, "Gee, I dunno. If I ran it over with a 63 ton MBT, would that help? If not, that's all I got."
