Ever since phone companies created the "Cell Phone" people and their language have changed dramatically. Since we had the ability to text, words(if you can call them that) like "LOL" "JK" or "BRB" have become a common use in the vocabulary of youth today. I know that when we text it that yeah its a lot quicker and easier to type little abbreviations, but really? in face to face conversation we have to use them? Answer: NO, why? 1) Because you sound like a moron, no offense to those who do, and 2) Its really not that much faster than saying 'Be right back" or "Haha". Just think, no don't wait till your done reading this blog, now, think right now. How many times in the past month have you used a text abbreviation instead of actually saying the correct words. Yeah thats what I thought. If you could only think of one, no worries more is to come, I promise. What are some reason that you think are the cause of the language we use today? if we were transported back to the 20's with the gadgets that we have today what would their reaction be? Oh look new technology! or would it be something more along the lines of What lazy people, why cant they take one of these lack cars that I have and drive and have a nice porch conversation with Bessie from Antioch?
In the 20's they talked with class and elegance while in the 21st century lots of kids use slang to communicate with fellow kids. I think the language we use is quite annoying not proper.
Back in the 20's kids would meet at their local hangout place, if you didn't know where a person/friend was you would either call down the street or find out where they usually hang out. Or when you would be called home for dinner, your mom would call out the door and wait until you get home. But now you will either get a call from your mom, or a text asking you to come home or to ask a question. So what has happened to our life? Why has our social life become so lazy and technology filled. When we go to talk to someone thats not on our phone is it socially awkward to talk face to face? What are your thoughts? Please respond to this blog with your comments. Why does every person we meet need to be in our phone? Why cant we just talk? Practice our social skills.
