ILUVU4URAQT

I don't want to talk about whether I do or do not currently have a festering dry socket in my mouth that may, according to my coworkers, eventually lead to endocarditis and/or bilateral leg amputations. I want to tackle the serious issues.

Question:

Why does the text message function on my phone recognize the words "absorptionality" and "disenfranchised" but cannot handle "salsa"?

(The first person who answers this question with "idk" is dead to me.)

I think cell phones are racist. Mine didn't know taco, quesadilla, or enchilada...

huh. Maybe it's not technically considered an English word. But it is! What other word is there for "salsa"?!

Lol! .... ok, I kid, I kid (although I did find this post very funny).

The other day my phone didn't recognize a certain word but I cannot recall what it is now... but it was a very common word. WAIT! I think it was taco! We had tacos on Tuesday for dinner!

Cell phones ARE racist!

Haha! I know how you feel! I can never understand why my phone won't recognize some pretty easy words myself. However, I have found that once you type it the way you want it, it will recognize the word the next time you need it!

I hate predictive text for that very reason. Disenfranchised? That must be part of some I.T. guy's joke.
