How many times have you typed a message only to have autocorrect change a word and destroy the entire meaning of your text? Well this happened to one woman recently and the results were hilarious.
According to the Daily Mail, Marie Seggie, from Lanarkshire, Scotland wanted to surprise her daughter, Laura, with the perfect 21st birthday cake but her typo resulted in a very unexpected cake topper.
Seggie described the details of the cake to the baker, explaining that she wanted it to be “plain white with white balls and dotted with a grey ribbon and bow.” She also wanted the special cake to have a figurine of a blonde girl on it but, instead of typing “blonde,” her phone changed the word to “blind,” so when she received the cake on top of it was a figurine of a blind brunette girl holding a white cane.
Finding the results extremely amusing Seggie’s other daughter, Emily, posted a picture of the cake to social media and the post has since become a viral sensation — because really, aside from being hilarious, the annoyance of autocorrect is just so relatable.
“My mum ordered a cake for my sisters bd [birthday] n asked for a blond girl on top but it autocorrected to blind n we got this [sic],” she tweeted along with the pic.

Emily then revealed a little more background to the story during a conversation with Buzzfeed.
“My mum’s friend baked the cake and my mum at last minute texted her to ask for a blonde girl on top,” she said. “The text must have autocorrected to ‘blind girl’ and when my mum went to collect it she was wondering why it wasn’t blonde. They then realized what had happened after checking the text and decided to leave it on as was funny. Hope no one is offended (sic).”
The baker is brilliant and at least she gave them exactly what they ordered. Plus the technology fail has caused smiles all around the world.
