Forwarded from a young person, who got it from an acquaintance:
just got an email that said "Address is correct…" like are you sad? are you upset? why the fuck are those extra periods there?
dear people over 25, stop using ellipses for no reason like please what are you doing
It occurs to me that the quoted reaction ("why are those extra periods there?" "like please what are you doing") has something in common with the reaction of non-uptalkers to uptalk.
