words. lost meaning- by adventureclubviral

texting bee comical

this comic was framed at a restaurant and when i saw it i did not laugh.
i can’t stand it when i receive a message full of acronyms or abbreviations. i am sorry but there is no excuse for poor grammar and bad spelling just because you are sending an informal message via text. don’t start with me about the urban dictionary and the newly added words in Webster-Merriam. and i don’t want to hear about the auto correct option features of cell phones. the sad fact is that people are just plain lazy with their words. the saddest fact is that as we continue to let them get away with it (or worse- continue to get away with it ourselves…) the meaning of words themselves will get away from us. the meaning of words is getting lost.
