Trends that piss you off.
I'm with you Sara. I was an electrical engineer yet I hate all this nonsense. I like my cell phone to for phone calls not texting, my email for emails, not Facebook. Although to participate in some groups you are forced to resort to Facebook, etc. Guess I'm getting old and stubborn.

I've been feeling that way a lot lately because of the technology available which I'm not interested...(while typing on laptop) oh well....

How many times have I walked out of a room and, within minutes, someone I just saw in the flesh sends a text?.. it's fudging unbelievable.

If I see a friend of my step son text while in front of me, while talking to me, I will leave the room. Screw that! Unbelievable!

Latest trend that's beginning to bug the.. out of me is the way everyone is communicating ONLY through face book nowadays..OCCASIONALLY OK BUT EXCLUSIVELY?? What pisses me off the most is that they don't seem to know how to communicate unless it's through a text or message on the cell ...Bleep.. bleep.. every time someone "likes" something or has a comment ..



a trend??? we'll see...

Facebook is fine for a while. But I like the "old fashioned "way of communication... talking on the phone. Now I do text my daughter. Without that, probably wouldn't get to " talk" to her sometimes.: (
Letters too!

I laughed so loud at this one! These kids probably don't even have the the foggiest where the baggy ass jeans thing started to begin with!
Parked, in my driveway, with the windows rolled up I was cranking tunes...some Ziggy. From the vibration, a dragonfly was zooming around the window. Watched it for a while, blue and purple it was.

Or, having the phone on so everyone can hear everything the other person is saying. Now that is disrespectful to the that person! Because they are not aware!

I do not like it when someone says they will call you back . you damn well know that they are not gonna. Why won't they just cop to the fact???!!! Er!
My dearest, dearest daughter does it! Guess I am used to it now. It could be worse. She could be not calling at all. Or worse than that.

I hope it's a trend and not permanently embedded in our brains but.......acronyms used while having a conversation with a human being, the kind of human being which is actually speaking and in the same room with you or on the cell, or heaven forbid, an actual landline in your home.

"OMG.. my BFF is coming over so I'll TTYL.."

(slight exaggeration)
