I am on MSN messenger a lot, I have many friends and online chat buddies there.
It’s nice to use, some of the features are cool, it’s free and I love the animated emoticons. By the way to my MSN buddies, don’t bother nudging me ‘coz I have the shaky thing disabled neh neh neh neh neh.
But if there’s one thing I hate about MSN, it’s the emoticons. Or rather the blatant misuse of something cute and funny.
Too many people are overdoing it, OVERKILL SIAL!!!
This is a mild case ok. There was once this friend and I were talking about something more serious, I had to try figure out what the heck she was trying to say with all those inappropriate smileys automatically inserted in mid-sentences.
And this is another friend ‘explaining’ to me some insurance plan:
How to read, I ask you?!? Dah lah my Math cannot make it, now have to try overlook the very distracting emoticons.
I seriously don’t understand lah. Please lah people, over killing it is teh sien. Then you wonder why I don’t like chatting with you on MSN.
Because deep down inside, I’d only be going…
