Not down with slang

Standard

Today’s Daily Prompt:

The language of the future: what will it be like? Write an experimental post using some imagined vocabulary — abbreviations, slang, new terms.

I would like to take a moment and say I am not down with slang. It’s hard to read and half the time I don’t even know what the abbreviations mean. Although I will admit that I do use some slang and abbreviations when I am texting but I tried and stay away from it as much as possible. Slang makes a person look uneducated, it takes just has much time to type all the letters in a word as is does to leave them out. I once read a paper that someone had written and I could barely read any of it because it was in slang and abbreviations. I was so turned off by the paper that I stopped reading after only a few sentences, my head hurt from trying to figure out what they had written. I had to ask them what that word was on almost every word. It was very annoying and frustrating.

In the future I hope the written and spoken language doesn’t get any worse. We already have some pretty bad slang and I don’t think I could handle anymore. I can only began to wonder what words will be shorten next. On second thought I don’t want to think about it.
