Now, everyone has those people in their lives, who insist on having everything spelled correctly, even in texts. No words can be shortened, no abbreviations that aren’t accepted in the unknown Guide to Abbreviations, no short cuts of any kind. In fact, the only word they might accept is ‘ok’. Otherwise, everything must be as if you’re writing an essay. I’m one of those people.
I mentioned several posts ago (still in 2017) that I met a guy and we’re basically in a relationship that this point. We text each other every day and see each other every weekend. Anyway, he doesn’t always take the time to spell things out or check to make sure the spelling is even correct. He’ll send me texts that are not grammatically correct, and I will text him back to correct him.
Sometimes, he says after he presses ‘send’, he’ll realize that something wasn’t right a few seconds before I correct him. It’s funny and I always find it amusing when he tells me that. I don’t just fix his grammar and sentence structure, I’ll do it to members of my family as well. Come on! Everyone family and group of friends has that person! Hey, any flagrant ill use of the King’s English is punishable by death in my house. Speak proper or don’t speak at all.
And on that note, it’s been real!
