My Blackberry

I have a hand me down blackberry from work. I don't know who owned it before me. But I think it is possessed.

On Friday, I had a doctor's appointment before work. When I got there, the doctor was running a little late so I knew I had to take some time off from work. The friend who went with me insisted I take the day off and get some additional routine tests done. Some were long overdue.

So I wanted to send an email out on my blackberry to let my work folks know about it.

I typed in:

I am taking PTO today. Won't be coming in.

Blackberry auto corrected it to:

I am taking POT today. Won't be coming in.

Mean, mean blackberry. For some reason, POT is stored in cache somewhere. So any time I type some key words, it auto fills it with stuff like:

Got Questions: Got Pot?

Getting paid today: Getting Pot today.

Any time a word starts with a G, POT is sure to follow.

Thankfully, I read the email before I sent it out to half the company.

Anyone have advice how to fix my blackberry before I get fired?

This is funny!!!
Not sure exactly what to do, but can't you go to some setting and change the word configuration? (boy, my tech know how is amazing, huh?!)
Good luck...hope your work understands!

You could always say you were shopping for cookware. LOL!

I'm sorry I wish I could help you. I don't have a blackberry. I could help anyone with Motorola Razr questions. Hehehe

Have a good night!
Me :)

Thanks! It is all true though. I wish I could take some screen shots of this. Oh well.

Jodi, What a brilliant idea! I never thought about that. I'll remember that for next time!
