One of my favorite bloggers, Jenna over at Recently Roached, had me in stitches after reading her latest blog post about her biggest pet peeve. I was feeling good, giggling to myself, until I thought about MY biggest pet peeve, and my mood changed a teeny tiny bit.
See, there are many things that annoy me in this world and can get me ranting on for hours, but there is one thing that I can absolutely not stand; it makes me want to pull out my hair, one follicle at a time. Deep breaths, everyone
Something I like to call, Annoying Text Language. “? u do lst nite? OK, c u l8tr” “ Yes, I totally get that you have to shorten words, or omit them completely, and create similar grammar sins, to type your text really fast or to fit everything you want to say into one text. But there is absolutely no reason why you have to type like that in an email, on Facebook or anywhere else for that matter.
I know you might be thinking; Yes, that is annoying, but it’s only teeny boppers with their new cell phones that type like that. Uhm, no. Unfortunately, it’s not. I’ve received emails, and I’ve seen disastrous status updates on Facebook, from “respected” adults that made me cringe more than a live Avril Lavigne performance.
Cn u evn ndrstnd ? Im wrting 2 u hre? When did it become okay to write like that? This Annoying Text Language is by far my biggest pet peeve. It’s annoying, unnecessary and to be honest, it makes you sound like a complete imbecile and that you haven’t graduated from high school.
