For example, I was recently invited to a little boy's first birthday party. His mother is an unmarried high school girl who has very little sense. She created a Facebook page to invite people to his party. Here is what she wrote:
"ok guys ______s bda is gnastart at noon and go to when ever, ad we are goona have hot dogs bugers, and cake fel free obrnga coverd dish seeing that i am haveing trouble with money, and any games u wanna play corn hole anything, if u are going to bing a lil kid plz let me know and PLZ BRNG THEM S HE CAN MAE NEW FRIEND!!!"
For those of you over 40, here is the translation:
OK, guys, ______'s birthday is going to start at noon and go until whenever. We are going to have hot dogs, burgers, and cake. Feel free to bring a covered dish, seeing as I am having trouble with money. Also, bring any games you want to play, like corn hole. If you are going to bring a little kid, please let me know. Please bring them so he can make new friends.
It seriously took me several times through to get the gist of the message. Is it just me or is this irritating to other people too?
It's actually pretty sad when you think about it. Here's a message all of you can teach your kids:
-Instead of being promiscuous in high school, pay attention in class. It will be well worth it in the end.
Or if they can't understand that, text them:
-Dude dnt get kncked up n skool lsten Nsted
