  • Sickening Abbreviations

    I`m fed up of these slangs smol, wcw, mcm, like wtf? It`s ruining our grammar half of the time people my age don`t even know what`s being said it is very ughhhh. Can we please go on with the I know right instead of ikr. We aren`t realizing how this is affecting us, also auto correct, even I`m forgetting spellings thanks to autocorrect. We are so used to these machines and technology that it`s not even funny. I still don`t know what smh means and honestly I don`t even want to know. Anyone interested in me, before messaging me please make sure you use full forms otherwise don`t even bother.

      When it comes to auto correct you can just turn off that function on your phone if its bothering you. And when it comes to the abbreviations, it is already given that the ones from the previous generation tend to be annoyed with the ones being used by the younger ones. I think what you should just do is just to use them for the sake that you know what they're talking about.

          Are you sure that you haven't used abbreviations whenever you're chatting or texting your friends?

            You don't have to use all those abbreviations if you're not fond of it. What is important is that you know at least most of them so that you won't feel left out

                Maybe she think it is just a waste of time to even just know them

              You're not the only one who's having problems trying to understand the abbreviations that kids use these days

                I agree with her. If your friends know that you don't use those terms often, they might feel weird or even cringe at you if you suddenly use them

                I think that's what usually happens when we hit a certain age. We wouldn't understand the next generation

                  I'm always lost with new abbreviations, It's good google is always ready to help me out. This is how language changes as years passes by.

                    Yes, google helps when it comes to that. But I hope kids would just stop abbreviating words
