The other day in the car I accidentally said “runnin’.” I was irritated and quickly corrected myself. Yup, I am just that kind of freak. I then proceeded to tell my husband and son about the story I read about a contestant on Wheel of Fortune who knew the answer to the puzzle but was disqualified because she said “swimmin'” instead of swimming. Even though contestants are instructed beforehand that they must enunciate, she felt she was treated unfairly. There was talk of discrimination because of her accent. Huh? Since when is laziness justified due to region? Had I been in her shoes I would have been distraught but not because of perceived injustice, because I was an idiot.
I honestly feel like the Twitterverse has its own language and it isn’t one I speak. I have very little interest in this medium anyway but when I do venture in I am perplexed by the ridiculous things I see people posting for the world to see.
I can’t decipher this at all. Is it code? Klingon?
Facebook is another place to find some absolute gems. Beauties like:
pritty boring today at the funarul but got to hang out with ***** ******** and some other bu yeh thats pritty much it 🙂
This is straight copy and paste. I shit you not.
The part that astounds me is, each and every platform for social media has a spellcheck system built right in. When you misspell something a red squiggly line appears underneath the error. What do these people think that means? Do they believe it to be mere decoration? Are they wracking their brains trying to figure out how to personalize it? Turn it pink maybe? Do they just not care?
Obey the red, squiggly line people!
