The perils of speech to text software (you won't find this in a manual)

What could be more embarrassing than leaving your underwear in the middle of the floor for your father in law to trip over?

Er, how about dictating a steamy sex scene using your voice software only for a deep male voice to call "Hi there" through the window, it was the gardener come to cut the grass.
Really, I am never coming out of my house again... Or having visitors, or...

And for those of you who were wondering (and I know who you are!) yes, the gardener is nice! And yes the underwear thing did happen to me.

Oh, Lorraine, you've got to laugh haven't you? You certainly have a knack for the funniest things happen to you :-)

Fabulous Lorraine! But does your gardener look like the one in Desperate Housewives??!! If he does, I'm coming to visit!

Lol, Lorraine!! :-)

Oh dear. There should definitely be some kind of warning with that software. Who would have thought?
