I’ve been meaning to have a moan about this for a while, but it’s hardly Pit -worthy so here we are.
Predictive text on mobile phones. A great labour-saving device, no? Well, yes by and large but it was clearly implemented by idiots, or at least people with very different social lives from the majority of cellphone users.
Who, for instance, thought that if someone types the combination (MNO) (TUV) (MNO), they were more likely to have the word nun in mind than mum? Were they raised in a convent, perhaps?

And why plan to go out for a pint? All the cool people prefer a shot or two!
