Random Question of the Day - Tia

Even though I'm still waiting on IT to get back at me to let me know how to get on the network, I still have time to post randomness online. You gotta love working from home.

So here's the random question of the day:

Am I the only one who struggles with trying to figure out what some people type in the way of comments and IMs? I'm not pointing any fingers specifically...wait...let me stop lying. Yes, I am. It's usually the people who were born in the mid 80s. These youngsters are writing comments and things somewhat phonetically and I have to really struggle to figure out what they're saying. I have to sound it out and such. Now don't get me wrong. I'm no master speller. In fact, in recent years I have become so dependant on spell check that it's a bit embarrassing. But the way some of the young bucks write makes me feel okay about myself.

For instance, this was a comment that I read on Concrete Loop that I had to sound out and seriously think about what the girl was trying to say.
IN DA ESSENCE MAGAZINE W/ KEYSHIA ON DA COVER IT HAS A SPREAD DAT READS, 1 PARTIED DOWN AND 1 GREW UP, WILL THEIR FRIENDSHIP LAST? I KNEW 4RM DAT PIC HER NOSE WAS DONE. AND EITHA PEPA GO PULL HER OR SALT GO DO IT, I HAD 2 LET PLENTY OF PPL GO SINCE SAVED

Maybe I'm just too picky or something. I know I've mentioned this before. But I really wonder if I'm the only one who has trouble deciphering.

This concludes my random question for the day.
