Default Call me old fashioned, but...

How would you finish the sentence?

Here's mine: I prefer text messages to contain full, correctly spelled words.

Now that we have smart phones with querty keyboards, it would be "gr8" if we could ditch the shortcuts.

......I don't want to see the branding on your under-pants.


.....please remember the friends of your friends also get to see your vulgar language and read about your sexual/drunken exploits on Facebook


..... I believe we don't need to make reality TV programs about pregnant school girls



.... I cringe when I hear the word 'but' as the last word of a sentence instead of 'though'.

This is one of my pet hates.

Does anyone else remember when there were marketing campaigns along the lines of "sign up 10 of your friend's emails and receive a free xyz"? I've read the riot act to a few people for using my email address on those!

I can't stand it when other companies try to put down competing companies in a bid to make themselves look better. The products or services that you offer should do the talking.

Hate it when people use 'prolly'. Sometimes I shout at the computer.

Just for a laugh, I have a family member who speaks this way on facebook. Her mother is the same. I always have a laugh in bewilderment, but I enjoy working out the message too!

A message from the wall (name removed for privacy reasons)

"spendin the last hours wiv the famz b4 they fly out to nyt hmm big dae ahead gunna miss yues soo much [names removed] p.s how can i get this plane delayd like for EVA lolz xxxx"
