Still More

Here we go again…

Things That Annoy Me

14. People who type in all capital letters.
15. People who don’t use ANY capital letters.

(Those people who type "i this" and "i that" drive me absolutely, foaming-at-the-mouth insane.)

I hate what texting has reduced us to. A nation of lazy idiots.

(Yeah, yeah, and YOU hate people who don’t use complete sentences. I get it.)

That’s just gr8.

When people type in all caps, I just want to ask, "Why are you screaming at me?" And when they use no caps at all, I say, "Are you channeling e e cummings?"

There is a professional woman I know of who uses all lower case letters in her own name. It's really cute and unique and all that, but gosh darn it, she just causes us all kind of heck when we do fundraising letters - we don't want to get anyone's name wrong, but those darn lowercase letters ALWAYS snag the system.

Truthfully, I think lower-case letters seem lesser (ee, excused, of course). And I personally think my name looks kinda weird in lower case.

WHY DO YOU HATE ME? i just don't get it. i had no clue ann-marie. why?

Hahahaha!! wendy....hmmm...WENDY. Yep, you're right. It looks best just the way it is.

Sooo, is it mainly the work issue that irritates you about the lower case? I know some people who do that. One just claims she's too lazy (pushing shift is hard, you know), and the other whispers in "real life," so I think it's kinda the same thing on the computer... Maybe.

Candice, candice, Candice - i think you are just more technologically savvy - what with all your texting experience! i'm just an old-fashioned, out-of-the-loop fuddy-duddy! i know!

i could never hate you! Just, come here and show me how to turn this darn thing on - i'll text you...if only i knew how!

I just can't figure out how to do caps on my phone. My phone is a little on the complicated side anyway. People don't have to worry about my texting because I don't have a texting plan on my phone.
