I grew up playing scrabble with my mom. At the table sat a copy of the dictionary so we didn't cheat or use words that weren't. I pride myself on the ability to spell and use more than just your basic vocabulary. I am, without a doubt, a sesquipedilian. If you don't know what it means, look it up.... I am seriously annoyed at posts, status updates, craigslist ads, etc when people don't take the time to capitalize, punctuate or just use whole words. LOL is the only thing I use, I'm not big on the whole CIO, ERF, DD,DS, DH- whatever! I don't even known what half of those stand for. Is the luxery of language just going to shit or what? Even when texting I don't use shortcuts. I spell everything out and it really gets to me that people just don't do this anymore...PS I'm only 26 so it's not like I'm 70 bitching about these young pups...;) Are people really just that lazy though? Does anyone else feel this way?!

Well I am sorry I stink at spelling most of the time(I do use spell check). My punctuation and grammar suck the most. Oh, just to let you know grammar is spelled grammar not grammer. LOL

Have you ever stopped and thought about people that have learning disabilities? Not every one is great at spelling. I have dyslexia. I suck at spelling. It's a battle I've had my whole life and it isn't going to get any better. No I'm not lazy when I use short cuts. Short cuts are easier for me.
