​Trendy Social Media Habit of Writing in English = Fail


What’s the deal with people trying to write their posts in English?

I’ll tell you what’s the matter. They don’t know English, so in their attempt to get a message across they fail miserably and aren’t ashamed of it.

Imagine writing in a language you really didn’t know… well, doesn’t the idea sound pathetic? Why would someone do that? Merely to follow a trend?
Believe it or not a LOT of people do understand your English is bad. Just be thankful most of us laugh amongst ourselves.

Some time ago I told one of my Facebook contacts their post didn’t make sense. The response was a public post in Italian, “generically” aimed at me since it was 5 seconds after my comment, that said: some people are just full of themselves and think they know everything.

I don’t think I know everything. I make mistakes myself. But instead of accepting how stupid your actions were you are actually blaming me for being full of myself. Fine by me…

Get a hold of yourselves people, if you’re using google translate or any other virtual translator to understand what I’ve written, the answer is NO, you shouldn’t write any posts in English from scratch. Stick to quotes and song lyrics.
