“And in your transcript, when you said that your protagonist had to pith, I suppose that, too, was autocorrect, right?” Darren’s editor said.
“Exactly,” Darren said. “He had to piss, not pith.”
“Of course,” Darren said. “I don’t even know what zoomorphic means.”
“Okay,” Darren’s editor said, “you can blame it on autocorrect if you want to, but as far as I’m concerned, it’s official. You’re a terrible proofreader and my job is not so much to proofread your drafts, which contain a waterfall of what you claim are not typos. If you want me to do that as well as to be your grammatical gatekeeper, you’re going to need to pay me more money.”
