Pet Peeve Phriday

DF HRU2D? Me? HIOOC. DGA I'll BBL. GTGP.
GLYASDI*

Did you get that? Yeah me neither. See below for the 'translation'.

Today's pet peeve is the lack of people (myself very much included) being able to write in coherent complete sentences due to emailing, IMing, texting, face booking, blogging and now tweeting.

People, mainly young people but older peeps too, have gotten way to used to to using abbreviations. Colleges and employers are complaining that finding young people who can write a good essay or business memo are scarce. No one it seems, except old women, write letters to people any more.

As Tigger would say, TTFN (Ta Ta For Now). I guess Tigger was the guy that started all this abbreviation stuff.


*Dear Friend how are you today?
Me? Help! I'm Out Of Coffee. Don't Go Anywhere I'll Be Back Later. Got To Go Pee.

God Loves You And So Do I
