Does anyone else get tired of this?!

This is somewhat of a short vent....

I get on CM alot and I love reading the questions and giving adivce. It just REALLY drives me crazy when people take the time to type out their issue and the end result does not make one bit of sense! If you are going to take the time and ask for advice, take the extra mintue or two to proofread! If people don't understand what you are trying to say you aren't going to get much/accurate help.

Also, I am NOT talking about people who misspell words or have bad grammar. I am guilty of both of these on occassion. I'm mostly talking about people who get in such a rush to tell their story they leave out lots of words and the like.

So, who else gets frustrated with this?

P.S. I'm not sure if this really goes in Just For Fun, but I thought it was the best match!

  • I want to help but choose to move on if I have to read more than twice to sort out what someone means. It really doesn't take that much to read what you typed, maybe add a spell/grammar check, and make sure you got your point across. It's CafeMom. You don't have a brief window in which to get your question typed and submitted.

  • I really want to help, so I do take the time to try to make sense of it.

  • Sometimes I think they send from a mobile device and can't see how garbled their posts really are.

  • Yes, I try to make sense of it too, but sometimes I get too frustrated. Lol Probably just depends on my mood. :)
