This type of word butchery is routine for her. It drives me up a wall, really. However, I found it rather comical that the first comment of said status update was from her, making a correction:
Yes, because out of all the words she misspelled, lack of punctuation, lack of capitalization, etc. excited is the one she just had to make sure was correct.
I'm fortunate to have the majority of my friends on Facebook write properly. They'll form complete sentences, spell out the words you/your/to/the (rather than u/ur/2/da), and generally write like grown people should. I'm far from perfect when it comes to writing, but I don't, under any circumstances write like the woman above or another friend of mine on Facebook:
"so....this ankle thing is plucking my last nerve lls why i go 4 dr appt he tells me i need xray n now i have a stress brake on top my foot lmao doctors theses days woooow so now i have had 2 broken bones in foot n never had a cast now wat is wrong here no wonder i cnt get better bad day goin 2 bed . Oh but got hair cut by liza n it looks so good thanxs gurl =)"
Both of these women are adults. Women in their 30's, writing like this on Facebook. Maybe I'm an asshole but I just feel this is completely unacceptable. Wat? Really? She couldn't put in one more fucking letter to spell it properly? Yet she could spell out the whole word wonder?
Do they think it makes them look cool to write this way? Because I just don't understand WHY anyone would go through the trouble and effort to purposely write like an idiot. And it is trouble and effort if you think about it. It takes more effort mentally to intentionally misspell words than it does to spell them correctly. Well, it does for me anyway. Maybe with some practice I could get good at writing like an idiot, but why would I want to do that?
Am I just being an old fuddy-duddy over this shit?
Deep Throat of the Day: Would I be a dick to defriend them just because they write like idiots?
