Bad grammar and spellings simply disgust me. Its erratic when someone uses sentences like ‘I lowe mah lyf, its awsm’ or something like ‘imma so sick 2day cnt go 2 sleep.’ It is just too irritating to come across such status updates. For two reasons, first no one is interested in your life’s exact details and second the spellings used.
I blame it to the SMS language, it has completely ruined English, the charm of the language is lost with such sentences and words being used. I am ashamed to admit the fact I was a part of the grammar ruining league sometime back. My facebook status in 2009 read ‘hppy nu yr’ and my texts were something like ‘ths tym I wil b mre srious.’ Doesn’t a ‘happy new year’ sound a better wish and isn’t it more conventional? Using this language is just sad and disheartening. Why does it become so difficult to type a full proper meaningful sentence? I don’t remember why I used it but I guess I thought it was cool. Which it definitely isn’t, it is just lame and wannabe.
I know a lot of people who do type like this, if its a very close friend I irritate the hell out of them until they correct it. I remember making fun of one of my friend’s boyfriend, he would always spell you as ewwww. Ewww for me is an expression of disgust. How can you even use ewww for you? If ewww get what I mean. In this the number of w’s can vary depending on the mood, if ‘ewwwwwwww’ are happy ‘ewwwwwww’ will have more w’s if not then less w’s. If you are thinking of thanking me you’d rather not say thankewwww, I will just throw a dictionary at your face instead of acknowledging ‘ewww’. I know don’t all these ‘ewww’s’ look irritating. Anyways it always gave us a good laugh and now we have a lot of ewww jokes.
Another one of these SMS words I abhor is ‘cum’,yeah you can cringe, what does one even mean by ‘I’m cuming 2 ur place’? I’d suggest first get a dictionary and then ‘come’ to my place. And if you are cuming, you should stay at your place. I sound disgusting, don’t I? Can’t help it, all the people who use such words are even more so. Just imagine what can be the consequence of a sentence like ‘I’m cuming in 5′. The list is huge I won’t go on and on making it hard for ewww to read erratic words.
So next time we talk over text messages, don’t use such spellings, although I don’t judge people, but I might end up judging you and it won’t be anything good. Ewww shld stay awy frm me incase ewww can’t stp et.
