I have to write a lot of emails. A lot of emails. And each and every one is like a vacation to hell. If you're anything like me, you know exactly why that is, but this video from Domics sums it up so perfectly it makes want to die and never write another email again.
I absolutely loathe text speak in texts and IMs. Even in those mediums, I write full sentences with capitalization and proper punctuation. When you communicate with people using "2" and "U" as substitutes for the real English language, it makes you appear illiterate and childish.
Someone who can't wrap her head around the fact that spelling out words and using proper grammar has become a sign of formality.
