Watch it with those periods.

Did you know that a period at the end of a text is rude?  My 17yr old daughter informed me the other day that I was being somewhat rude when I put a period at the end of a text. Insincere might be a better term, but either way if you end the text with a period you are now officially indicating you are less than enthused. I didn’t buy it. She proved me wrong. Pop culture is leaving me behind but I’m not going without a fight.

Don’t believe me? Click on the images to check it out in these two articles.

So what do you think? Am I the only one who didn’t know about this?

  1. I…think I kind of get this. *cringes* I’ve noticed that more and more when texting, I hesitate before adding a period, even after what is a fully formed, grammatically correct sentence. I feel like I “should,” for obvious reasons, but it increasingly seems weird to do so. My husband and I use IM (Trillian) to chat during the day while he’s at the office, and I rarely use periods there, because it’s very off-the-cuff, random stuff.

    That being said, the tone of both those articles was just a TINY bit overboard, lol.
