I wanted to say “to anyone over 35” or maybe “over 40,” but I really don’t know where the buck stops, and this crazy little thing starts.
When corresponding through the internet, there is one thing that I don’t understand: the ellipsis.
Here is an example of a conversation:
Me: I’m going to the mall, do you want to join?
WTF is with that ellipsis? What is the point? That’s implying you left something out.
It looks ominous AF when you say “…” at the end of a normal sentence. It almost sounds like you’re saying “Sure…but I had other plans that you’re now ruining” or “Sure…but I will kill you later” or “Sure…but I really don’t want to.”
It just implies that you left something out.
I know it’s an older person thing, and I HAVE NO IDEA WHY YOU PEOPLE DO THIS.
Me: Do you want me to bring you a coffee?
YES OR NO? Are you asking if you owe me one? Are you saying you don’t know if I know how you take your coffee?
And I’m sure you’re wondering, “Why don’t you ask?” SURE. I HAVE.
Me: What kind of food do you wanna get later?
Me: Is something wrong?
PO30: No? …
PO30: Where are we getting sushi…
Me: Terra Nova?
WHAT IN TARNATION?!
I just want to rip my hair out when I see people using an ellipsis.
End your sentences with a big old PERIOD. Or don’t end them with any punctuation.
Please just stop with the ellipsis.
