Finger macros

In German, “Stelle” means “place” and I sometimes have occasion to type that… but what usually comes out is “Stella” (the name of my wife). A kind of auto-complete that my fingers do without thinking, once they “notice” what word I’m beginning to type :)

What are your most common finger macros, where you keep having to correct yourself with certain words because your fingers expand them into other words?

'sprint' often comes out 'sprintf'. More puzzlingly 'python' often comes out 'pythonk'.

A common one for me is "facebook" as "fecebook", but that might be a Freudian slip rather than a fingers macro strictly speaking.

I keep thinking I should be able to come up with something for this. I know I've experienced the "finger macro" effect. But I can't think of any examples, so I guess none of them are *that* common.
