You are the most annoying link. Goodbye.
I’m a fairly tolerant person. I can cope with a lot of things, working with children for over a decade has taught me patience as well as a whole host of other things.
Except. I hate text speak. Like really, really hate it.
I’ll admit that I’m a stickler for spelling, but I’m not a grammar nazi.
I’m sure at one time it would have been done to save money; to squeeze everything into one text message, and not exceed the character limit.
Now I think it’s laziness, and people can’t be bothered to type out words in full. I think it can be excused on rare occasion,and if you are under the age of sixteen.
Trying to decipher these cryptic letters is beyond me most of the time, I’m not kidding when I say my head starts to hurt. I would cite examples but I would rather eat the skin off my feet.
The only shorthand text speak I ever use is LOL, does that make me a hypocrite?
Should I reply to texts saying ‘I have found your statement quite amusing, and this is causing me to chuckle rather audibly’.
A few weeks ago I removed some FB friends, as my feed was filled with their text speak ramblings (I was pmt at the time) but I recall rejecting shaadi dot commies for this too, was that really harsh?
(You don’t have to answer these questions, I’m just waffling and it’s too much to tweet)
