We’ve all got “bad” habits.  If you’ve been using a computer for over ten years, then yes, YOU have issues too.

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.
