We’ve all got “bad” habits. If you’ve been using a computer for over ten years, then yes, YOU have issues too.
Techie Bad Habit #1 – Speaking in Emoticons or Internet Lingo
I’ve been a victim of this habit. “Slash cry more,” or instead of really laughing, saying out loud “L – O – L,” or adding an ‘x’or” to normal words (fuxxored, roxxored, suxxors, etc.) Some times normal people will look at me funny. I can’t help it. The words just stumble out of my mouth like I’m swearing. My teen son says “rofl” as a real word, not just an acronym. Oddly enough, geek speak is becoming quite common place in youngsters vocabulary. I wonder how long it will take for ‘lol’ or “rofl’ to hit Webster’s.
