Sometimes it's hard to imagine how people managed to stay connected before technology. I mean, come on, waiting for a letter to arrive? Going through telephone operators? Yes, we shudder at the thought of waiting to connect to others. However, even in the digital age where we are connected on multiple platforms - miscommunication and awkward situations can still arise and more often than you might think.

To prove this, Late Night host Jimmy Fallon took to Twitter for another one of his famous challenges, asking people to share a screenshot of their most awkward text message fails with the hashtag #MyAwkwardTexts for the chance to be featured on his show. Scroll down below to see all the hilariously funny text message responses he received, and don't forget to upvote your favs!

Autocorrect is a bitch.

While autocorrect accounts to some truly hilarious text fails the amount of times it does get things right is truly amazing and the technology behind it is even cooler. Most of the big name tech companies keep their software under wraps but the company Nuance was willing to talk to Slate Magazine and filled them in on how the spell check magic happens.

Nuance software company is responsible for one of the oldest and most popular text-entry systems - T9 (throwback to those flip phones). Each company has customized this system so it might not carry the same branding but a variation of it has been bundled with billions of phones.

I guess the answer is 'no'.

The earliest version of was a way to enter a text message using a 9-digit numeric keypad, but flash forward and phones can automatically correct input and recognize handwriting. So how does it all work? The algorithm behind auto-correction works the same as a word processors spell checker. While you are typing the software is checking each word against its built-in dictionary. Would be pretty difficult for our human editors but for a computer it happens at warp speed.

This is not awkward, it's amazing!

But what happens when your computer editor can’t find a match? That’s right, it just makes it up! Kinda. It tries to predict what you were trying to say. Unfortunately this “helpfulness” can create some hilarious epic fails and wild misunderstandings!

You really should keep this kind of pictures private, even if they are funny.
