According to trending topics on twitter, today is INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK day. I was going to write the whole blog entry in caps, but I just couldn’t do it. It’s rude, right?
Writing in caps is up there with excessive use of exclamations, web abbreviations and smilies. It’s the scurge of Facebook and twitter status updates. For example;
OMG!!!! I can’t believe I have double maths!!!!! kill me!!!! LOL! LMAO!
Also, how many times have you typed something in caps without realising? Micosoft should make an option to un-caps things which have been accidentally cap-ped. Hey, that could be my thing;
‘I’m a PC and de-capping things which have been cap-ped, was my idea!’
Writing in caps isn’t all bad though. It allows you to shout about things you wouldn’t dare shout about in real life. (Unless you’re one of Scarborough’s local crazies. Yes, I refer to ONE, TWO, THREE, FOUR man.)
So in honour of INTERNATIONAL CAPS LOCK day and group therapy, I’m encouraging the venting of our spleen’s through the use of caps lock and loud aggressive key typing. I’ll go first;
I HATE WHEN INTERNET PAGES TAKE AGES TO LOAD BUT THE POP UPS, ERM ,POP UP IN A MILISECOND. I HATE HOW SCHOOL KIDS NOW TAKE HAND BAGS TO SCHOOL. HANDBAGS! WHAT’S WRONG WITH A NIKE ‘JUST DO IT’ BAG? CONVENIENCE AND A SEXUAL INUENDO…WHAT MORE COULD YOU WANT?! I HATE THAT DESPITE RETURNING TO SENDER, I’M STILL INUNDATED WITH THE PREVIOUS OCCUPANTS POST. I’M SICK OF PEOPLE WHO COUGH WITHOUT COVERING THEIR MOUTHS, CHAVS WHO WALK AROUND WITH THEIR HANDS DOWN THEIR PANTS AND PEOPLE WHO BURP IN PUBLIC. RIGHT NOW, I’M MOSTLY SICK TO FRIGGING DEATH OF KATIE FRIGGING PRICE BEING ON MY TV TRYING TO FLOG RANDOM SHIT SHE’S MADE PINK AND STUCK CRYSTALS ON.
That felt good, your turn.
