I have an acquaintance who is older than me, a stay at home mom and has two children. She, in attempt to be "hip", always types in txt spk. Even in email, on social media and in documents. No.

There's someone on one of my online groups that uses kisses like punctuation.

It drives the rest of the group crazy x She's 25 x and therefore old enough to know better x and sometimes its super inappropriate to the topics being discussed x
All will be well, and all manner of things will be well.

For the record, when I was first on the internets (back when there was only one, electrons were carried between computers by carrier pigeon, and AOL charged by the hour), TyPiNg LiKe ThIs was called "Torgo Talk" after the it's-so-bad-it's-awesome movie Manos, The Hand of Fate.  The character Torgo had a strange way of speaking that, well, bobbled up and down much like the chat stupidity mentioned previously.

I know someone who does this on Facebook x It's bad enough when it's just her normal posts x Sometimes though it's a post for a society of which she is a national board member x So the party meeting the Prime Minister will be gathering at the House of Commons at noon x The posts about the funeral gave me the complete yips x

Drivers on a 75mph interstate that drive under the speed limit when there are signs posted that there is no minimum speed.  In the state I live in laws have been enacted to actually ticket people who do this when you are on sections of the interstate that are only two lane to prevent road rage incidents.  Don't know if it does reduce it or not, but I do get miffed when stuck behind someone going 60 in a 75 zone.

It's not just to prevent road rage; people who drive very much slower than the norm on busy highways are actually a danger to everyone.

Okay, I do this when I'm driving to/from Home and Grad School (it's a very long drive along one interstate), but I have good reasons for doing so:
  • The MPH changes enough between 60-65-70 that it just makes much more sense to stay at 60 than kick it up, slow down, kick it up again, etc.
  • Often it's windy and curvy, so I feel a better handle on the car at 60.
  • At least in my state, unless it's posted, the understood minimum speed is 45 on the highway.
If I feel comfortable, I will go 70 MPH, but that also burns through gas faster, and I'd rather not use money I don't have to if I can make the whole trip on one tank of gas. However, unless it is absolutely necessary, I stay in the right lane, because it's made for the slower traffic.


The reason the minimum is 45 is that slower -than that- is dangerous. Driving 60 when everyone else is going 70 isn't really that dangerous. It's when you're more than 20 or so MPH slower.

Either the Time Turners didn't really get all destroyed or there are a lot more blue call boxes out there. ;)

Why are you talking about ME all of a sudden?! >:D

Today's aggravation: When makeup goes perfectly on one eye and looks like a small child did the other eye.

I hear you, Fliss!  Would help if they didn't have their head stu...   um, don't get me started!
The phrase you are looking for is "cranio-rectal inversion syndrome." Sorry about your ute.  I don't know about Oz, but unless that is a brand-new vehicle, in the US such significant damage would cause the insurance company to declare it totaled.

This is why I stopped doing my own toes. I am not flexible enough to bend over and reach them, and i can't see that far down either. So I'd end up painting my entire foot, which annoyed me. So now I splurge in the spring-fall and get them done.
