Sister Mary Elephant returns.....


Ok, Students, today's lesson:

The use of abbreviations.

Ah yes, we all use them. But some, (and you know who you are), use them much too frequently.

I suppose, in chat, it is easier, especially on this site. The chat moves very quickly, and it's hard to keep up. But, in my opinion, that's no excuse for looking like an idiot.

U, Ur: arrrrrgh. What? It's too difficult to spell out YOU or YOUR (or YOU'RE)? Cripes almighty. I'm kind of funny, because when I am talking with someone, and they use those letters often, the chat ends. Or, I get it in an email. Said email is deep-sixed, quickly. C'mon people. Think about it. I'm not saying everyone has to type like a journalist, but dang. Using those two specifically, over and over, makes you look like a serious fucktard. (pssssssst... that means you aren't attractive).

IC, Y, R: Again. How fricking hard is it to type out "I see"? Y? Why not? R U a fricking moron?

Yeah, baby. Those things get me charged. Yep.

Now, I know this all stems back from when computers and chat rooms were new. SOMEONE had to come up with a way to be able to chat quickly. Hence, the abbreviations were born. And, if you used them, you were hip. Sort of like the word "groovy". But, it's gotten ridiculous. They are being used in all facets of life. Not just in chat or emails. Kids are using them in papers they have written for school. I've seen these idiotic things in magazines. I know, collectively, we are on a time schedule. For everything. So, why not cut corners? Hell, people do it driving. They don't stop for stop signs, speeding is common place, etc. Are we that busy as a society to forget the basics? Common courtesy? Are we, (well ok, YOU, since I have no kids), raising kids to be lazy and self-centered? Allowing them to slide on through? Personally, I see society moving in that direction. It's sad really. Actually, it goes beyond pathetic. And, it all goes back to being lazy. Not caring. The ME ME ME syndrome.

I realize I just covered this in a previous post, but, again, I got an email. Today. Lucky me. From another fucktard. I may just forward this post to him...

I don't get it either.... it is not like those abbreviations will save all that much time!! LOL (which one of the FEW acronyms I use)

I don't even use those in a text message on my phone!!! And if ever I would stoop that low.. that would be it!

I want to be hip and groovy too!!

rm_bucfannn replies on 5/4/2006 6:20 pm:
You ARE groovy, babe

I don't use them either on my phone. I'd rather take forever to type out the words, than to use those damn acronyms

one of my huge pet peeves too! ur gets on my nerves! What if they are abbreviating 'you're' shouldnt they write "u'r" ??

I only use that crap jokingly and usually in text messages and its always "I R " as in "I ARE coming over now" to be stupid and grammatically incorrect as a joke.

people who write like this, or even worse, (yes there's worse) alternating caps and lower case letters for no fucking reason! should be rounded up and shot just for being too stupid to procreate.

YEP YEP YEP! I agree, Sir Frump. Shoot 'em all

Well as I wrote in an entry to my blog about what people write in their blogs, the abbreviations and spelling errors are really getting bad. We as a society are becoming very apathetic to everything. I also agree with buc on the point of kids. I have visitation with my daughter and I am trying to teach her the best I can. Unfortunately I don't get to see her as much as I want and unless the courts give me primary custody in a couple of weeks, my daughter's main influence with be her mother who has absolutely no ambition in life.
Last rant for me is the use of spell check, it is on the blogs so please use it(and this isn't meant for buc or anyone who has commented here). I am getting too old to decipher what some people write.

rm_bucfannn replies on 5/4/2006 6:03 pm:
I so agree. I'm sick and tired of the apathy. But, again, it all stems to laziness. Too much to do, and not enough time in which to do it. So, it's easier to cut corners.

And kids? Sigh. That's a whole 'nother story...

Not many people realize this, but it is not a coincidence that the increase of fucktards and the issue of illegal immigration have come to the fore simultaneously. Yes, denizens of the Republic of Fucktardia
are sabotaging the lives of sane, normal and literate people all over this fair land. Their alarmingly high reproductive rate seems to guarantee that this plague will continue. However, scientists are hoping to entice the fuctards into a large open area, where they will stare at the sky as it begins to rain, with their fucktard mouths open, and they will all drown. I hope this thought comforts you as much as it does me.

I am seriously rolling here. "FUCKTARDIA"??? Too funny

This is all way too funny, "Fucktardia","Shoot em all", "too stupid to procreate". If this wasn't such a serious problem with our society I would be rolling on the floor laughing. Unfortunately it is. To think Parents and teachers actually think they are doing a good job raising the youth of America by allowing this sort of crap is beyond comprehension. What is even more incredible is that they keep raising our taxes to pay for such an education. I think a Good Grammar Revolution is in order. While they are at it teach American History too, start with the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. WE would all be much better off....I nominate the beautiful and very talented Bucfann as our spokesperson.....All in favor.............

I agree wholeheartedly but unfortunately we are showing our age as today text language is just so popular with the younger generation.
I will not even text that way but then I am an old fogey.
I watch my daughter text and watch television at the same time and wonder how anyone could make head or tale of what she wrote, but all her friends surely can.

rm_bucfannn replies on 5/5/2006 12:39 am:
Yea, I watch my niece do it, too. Her fingers fly so fast on that phone, they are a virtual blur.

I, too, am an old fogey. So, I know of what you speak
