I have always been annoyed by people that are so afraid to offend that they give a little laugh after everything they say.  “Good morning…he he ha ha!”  WTF!  No matter how innocuous the comment they insert a tiny guffaw.  What they are really conveying is “just in case what I say might be offensive my laugh indicates I am just joking.”  This annoying laugh becomes a habit with some people.

The digital equivalent, and it is just as annoying, is LOL.

Come on people…take a chance…make your comment and let it stand on its own.  Same goes with JK.  Do we have to cyber-express every statement?

How about:

“My don’t you look nice” SWASF  (Said with a straight face) 

“Gee, it’s sooo good to see you” SPA (Smiling passive aggressively)  

“I hate when that happens” FF (Frowny face)

“That is a beautiful dress” SAYC (Staring at your cleavage)

“I got your money right here” GMC (Grabbing my crotch)

“Fuck you” FU (Fuck you)

“I disagree” GUTF (Giving you the finger)

“It’s not you, it’s me” IRU (It’s really you)

“I’d love to go to the ballet” RME (Rolling my eyes)

“I’d love to go to the opera” RMFE (Rolling my fucking eyes)

“We need to talk?” BMBOWMF (Blowing my brains out with my finger)

I think this idea of conveying emotion or facial expression with these stupid letter shortcuts is ridiculous.  I for one refuse to resort to this silly practice.

Sincerely COM (Cranky Old Man)



  1. YAH.. you're a hoot.

    I'm familiar with a couple of folks who use LOL after every comment they write on blog posts - often about semi-serious subject matter. I have to wonder what they think it means. I heard about (probably through something like Damn You Autocorrect) of one woman who believed it meant Lots of Love and so it accompanied the news of Grandma's death.

    And then there's always this

  2. Another great post, Cranky. JK, LOL, SWASF, SPA, FU, RME, BMFBOWMF.
