Default Today's youth and crappy spelling.

I know I am not the best speller in the world but the fact that these kids wright like they text message is fucking wrong.

I was reading a post on another forum and this young kid just made me sick with his "NE1 lookn 4 sum tires 4 a crawler". That is just one of the 20 hacked to shit sentences he wrote.

I was talking with my mom about it and she told me that is how a lot of these kids wright papers for school projects and on tests. Needles to say many of them get failing grades when they do it but they continue to do witch is sick.

GOT YOU MOTHERFUCKER!

The problem is the reliance on autocorrect as you have so nicely demonstrated. Turn it off and pay attention.

It is not so much a matter of misspelling. It is a complete lack of understanding of the English language.

Example... You spelled "wright" right, but it is out of context. You should have used "write."

"Witch" is spelled correctly, but again, context. You should have used "which."

Then there is the general lack of correct punctuation.

A guy I used to work for texted that way, like a junior high kid. He said he was too busy to type correctly. I didn't feel bad when job details got lost in translation.

Like I said, I am not the best speller and I will admit I flip words around as I have always had an issue with that. I know I am dyslexic and I was in Sped English classes for a few years to help me out and it kind of helped but, shit I still screw up.
We all miss spell words but to hack words up because you are too lazy to type/write (<-- I caught that this time) then out if just pathetic.
