Listen up, folks: If you're going to order a birthday cake, don't do it via text. Or your iPhone's autocorrect might play a trick on you.
A mom in North Lanarkshire, Scotland, texted a friend to make a custom cake for her daughter's 21st birthday. She wanted "a wee blond girl" on top of the cake -- but her phone mangled this request and sent "wee blind girl" instead.
So when the cake came, this is what it looked like:
The little cake-topper girl (who has brown hair, by the way) is holding a white cane, the kind used by people who are blind or visually impaired. Whoops!
On Sunday, the woman's other daughter, Emily Seggie, posted a picture of the mishap on Twitter. By Tuesday afternoon, it had garnered thousands of favorites and retweets.
Seggie also sent The Huffington Post a screenshot of the unfortunate text her mom sent to the baker:
"At first we were very confused by why the figure was blind, but when we saw the text we just found it funny," Seggie told the HuffPost on Tuesday.
