The Internet Strikes Again


My mechanic told me a funny story last week. He said he had heard about someone who had sent an email informing them that a parent one had died. The email ended with “LOL.”

The recipient, taken aback, responded, “What’s so funny about my mom dying?”

The sender said, “I thought LOL meant lots of love.

I thought this was hysterical. Here was another example of how this generation (which I’ve nicknamed “Generation Text”) gets in trouble by taking too many shortcuts.

I told my daughter about it later. She responded by showing me many of the memes online already devoted to that joke.

Sigh.

Until next time! Use the right words!

It’s here! My début book, “If You Experience Death, Please Call: And Other Fatal Mistakes We Make With Language” is out and available on Amazon. Order now for just $14.95. Contact me on my website to reserve your copy or Order here.
