Let's explore the world of the exclamation point , shall we? In this new age of texting, I think puncuation is very important. Especially when one is texting one's teenage daughter. I had to work last night and Melissa had gone to hang out with some friends. As the time for me leave drew near I sent her a text, which read:
My text: u know i have to work 2nite right?
Melissa: yes mom at 6!
What does this exclamation point say to you? To me, it says ATTITUDE. How dare she exclamation point me! Who does she think she is anyway? I think the text she sent me should included a nice smiley face at the end. Let's see how that looks:
My text: u know I have to work 2nite right?
The hypothetical Melissa text: yes mom at 6 :)
See, that looks much better.
Later I sent her this text:
My text: no exclamation points EVER!!!!
You too should ban your children from giving you the exclamation point. I mean what comes after that? Them giving you the finger.......
