Lazy Or Simply An Imbecile?

What is up with people who use "ya" ALL THE FUCKING TIME in their writing? For instance, "what are ya sayin?", "who are ya kiddin?", "how are ya doin", "where are ya comin from", "why do ya keep usin da fuckin ya?" I think you get my point. And have you noticed how they conveniently "forget" to use the "g" at the end when they are using "i-n-g"? Just today, I received an email from a moron who replaced all the "i-n-g's) with "k-e-n". For instance, "checken", "looken", "fucken", "walken", sulken". Again, I think you get my point here.

The word I hate most is "peeps". I was told by an asshole that it is short for the word "people" and that I should get out more often because I have never seen or heard the word being used that way.

Have you ever come across people who use "prolly" as "probably"? Well, I have. All the fucking time too. WHAT THE FUCK IS "PROLLY"? Who the fuck invented the stupid word? If you happen to be one of those fucking idiots, please, for God's sake, THERE IS NO SUCH WORD!!

Next, the word "conversate". Again, no such word, okay? Don't go around telling people that you want to "conversate" with them. It makes you a moron and I have no desire to have a conversation with you.

Finally, for those who say "anyways" all the time. Listen up, no need for the extra "s". The word is "anyway" and that's it.

Any questions?

The use of proper English in writing or speaking is becoming a lost art. So is using a spell check. I still will drop the "g", but I do it with an apostrophe. As a southerner, droppin' the "g" is a common thing, and I will sometimes write as I speak. "Ya" I use only occasionally, in a teasing way, with people I consider close friends. Boy, you oughtta (lmao) get some hate mail out of this.

Oh, you're missing the ones who say u instead of you, ur instead of your, ne instead of any... What is wrong with people who have to abbreviate one syllable words? Then there's there, their anad they're. People who use apostrophes in plurals. Its (posssessive pronoun) and it's (it is or it has).

1337 (leet) speak has got to go. However, someone did a very accurate version of Romeo and Juliet in 1337 that is hysterical.

Hmmm. Lots of grammar peeves. I call it casual speak. I don't see anything wrong with it for daily messages between friends, but it does get annoying for long messages or first time introductions.

OK Joe..never mind...found it...LMAO...having fun yet?

As for your post squirter...I know what you're saying. I often drop letters or use a slang for emphasis or to be sarcastic. With some people like whom Milliondolrasshole(did I spell that right?) is referring to, it's simply the way they talk.

As for e-mails etc that i get or you get...if someone cannot take the time to at least make what they are saying coherent...they get deleted.

By Y'all...LOL

I don't really understand your gripe. There is a time and place for everything. There are times that we need to sound intelligent and there are times when need to sound informal. I personally use correct English most of the time when writing, but do not feel that it is necessary for a majority of the population. Your assumption is that most people want to sound intelligent and educated. I do not think that is the case. Most people treat emails as informal writing, just like speaking, and are trying rather to get an emotion or mood across instead. A personally am not too concerned with what others think of me, so I do not bother to check my punctuation or spelling, etc. However when I have to write with the intent of gaining someone's respect, like a resume or a business letter I then get more concerned.

Squiter, thank you so much for your apology. It isn't your post that caused the uproar, it was the comment of one particular little ball licker. Actually, I agree with what the main thread of this post is about. But there was NO reason for the assclown to insult anyone, much less MzHuny. You keep blogging it YOUR way. That's what it's all about. And thank you for droppinbg by Copperhead Road. Joe

Blame it on the medium... when writing e-mail and blogging people tend to write the way that they speak. It's probably a good thing, if you don't like the way they write you probably won't like the way they do anything else and that makes it very easy for you to just hit the delete key and move on.

It's so refreshing to see someone else who respects the English language! Really! All those LOLs, and ROFLMAOs kind of stuff... not my style at all. If people feel a need to take short cuts like that, it kind of makes me wonder what else they do to take the easy way. Me? I've always preferred the "road less traveled!"

I find that more young people speak that way. It's supposed to be cute. But it's not, really.
