17 October 2011

kids these days.

A mere twenty-four I may be, but I feel like I've truly arrived as a crotchety old lady.

While on the internet, especially social networking sites, I have begun to clutch my figurative pearls at a spelling trend noticeable among Today's Young Whippersnappers: adding completely unnecessary and illogical letters to random words.



I ask: whyyyy?

(I understand if they were to write goodbyyyyye, because if you were to say this word in a drawn-out fashion, you'd actually emphasize the y. But the e? I just don't get it.)

Someone enlighten me, if there's a reason for this, so I can stop pulling out my greying hair.
