Don’t get me wrong, I like slang.
Slang is convenient.
It is totally acceptable on the Internet as well as in a normal conversation nowadays…But something about it has been bothering me…
Yes, that’s right. Surprise, surprise.
“A mini rant with a sprinkle of what the actual fuck” is the forecast for the next 30 seconds.
I totally get it when you abbreviate a word. You know…to get your message across to the recipient without having to write the whole word out.
That is acceptable. It saves time and blah-di-blah.
However, what I don’t get is…
When someone substitutes a letter for a another letter (or character) of similar sounding, just for the heck of it.
E.g. h3y, haw arr yuh on thiz fyne azz d4y?
Wait…What? Why? Is there something I’m missing?
I’m pretty sure we’ve all been through that phase at some point in our lives, when we use slang like there is no Oxford’s Dictionary, but once again…
Ah well. Guess I’ll have to let this one slip an’ all.
