Work Related: ALL CAPS

Working for a web based company obviously a huge part of my business involves email.

A couple of things get on my nerves when attempting to do business this way.

One would be the tendency for grown people to use U instead of You and 2 instead of too.
This is just stupid. Save it for texts.

The other would be...
TYPING LONG RUN ON SENTENCES THAT RUN INTO LONG PARAGRAPHS THAT ARE VERY MUNDANE IN CONTENT AND VERY HARD TO READ AND THEN ON TOP OF THAT THEY ARE TYPED IN ALL CAPS.

This afternoon I am reading one of this tedious emails and at the very end the guy says.

PS SORRY ABOUT THE ALL CAPS

People are so weird.

ROFL! BUt I gotta admit - my first thought was what Amber said - stuck on caps! PJ... you're a good ol' egg! I don't think I would have lasted as long as you have at this job! You just keep pluggin'!

Thing is....most people are lazy when it comes to typing, they do enjoy using this kinda thing.

For me it's the 'yuppie talk'. I had one guy [neighbor] tell me that they are going on vakay...which of course is vacation in correct terms. LOL
