I have a totally old person question here.
It seems to be common if you’re under 18 and female to write with extra repetitions of the last letter of your words.
Like omggggg this wld be a rlly great exampleee rite hereee.
I get the txtspeak. Not a problem. But wherefore with these last letters? If you’re trying to type the way that it sounds when you talk then it’d be “omg I cant belieeeve it”. So why does it end up “believeee”?
I am officially old. I can speak kid, but I don’t get it. And you know what I miss?
When there was a time before Facebook and Twitter and text messaging and IM at work. When you would shoot pithy little emails back and forth and try to crack each other up with them. Is that weird? To be homesick for an outdated mode of electronic communication?
(Especially one that doesn’t have lots of extra letttersss at the ends of random wordsss?)
Where’s my ear trumpet? You kids get off my lawn.
