Computers and keyboards have formed a long list of acceptable word shortcuts. How r u? and h8rs gonna h8 are only the cream of the cupcake.
Yet sometimes, one wonders why we can’t spend the extra 2 seconds typing out the entire word correctly. Especially when you see these internet … “swag” :
- how yu doing guh? – Yes, I realize you may pronounce “girl” differently, but since we’re reading, not hearing, maybe spelling it out correctly is better for everyone
- yooooo. waittttt a seccc. where are youuuuu? – Did your finger get stuck on the key at the end letter of every word? Hurry, get rid of the gum!
- jst a minnit imma get a cuppatea – I think the dictionary just got new words added.
