Do you know what I don't enjoy?
The abbreviations people use to express themselves on line or via text. Like LOL. Seriously, not a fan. Or LMAO. I am totally okay with OMG. And who doesn't enjoy a WTF once in a while? But LOL, LMAO and ROFL are like nails on a chalkboard to me. Whatever happened to just saying Ha Ha!! So people would know you are laughing? Or what is wrong with a smiley face. :) I am a huge fan of the smiley face and all derivatives.
Now please know that I am not judging you if you are a frequent user of the LOL, etc. I just don't particularly enjoy them. You may not like Cheetos. I think they are like manna sent from Heaven above. The snack food of the Gods. But I know you are a kind person and will not hold my affection for processed cheese puffs against me. I feel the same way about your use of LOL.
Unless you are using the LOL to pretend that you are kidding when you are really not. I hate, loathe, despise this little game. There is nothing worse than the passive aggressive LOL.
For example, April's Facebook status reads:
April just had a great dinner with good friends.
The passive aggressive LOL-er who feels left out all the time responds:
"Why weren't we invited? I thought we were your good friends, LOL!"
Don't LOL me when I know you are just trying to get your point across. Because we both know you are pissed I didn't invite you and you are not really LOL-ing. This is why you weren't invited. I can't stand your venomous remarks, even if they are wrapped up in a smile. LMAO!
"I thought you didn't like Susie, you roll your eyes every time someone mentions her name. Yet last night I noticed the two of you had quite the convo on Facebook, LOL!"
You know what? Just call me out and say I'm two faced! Don't pretend you are teasing me when I know you aren't. Maybe I roll my eyes every time someone mentions her name because I know you are going to make some snippy comment about her? Maybe I can't stand the bitterness you constantly throw her way?? Maybe I roll my eyes to brace myself against your lack of ability to hide your low self esteem. JK! ROFL!!!
Maybe I just want to see how many times I can get you to LOLLMFAOROFL. OMG!! Like WTF???
How about you just take your LOL and KMA? OK??
No, I am not talking about you. Or you. Or that other person we know who does this all the time. This is all hypothetical. LOL.
