I am so fed up of getting online, especially on Facebook, and seeing all of the ignorant sounding posts from people. I have started to notice a real downward spiral in the spelling and grammar of younger people. Sometimes, it is so bad that I just want to smack my head against my desk. I have noticed people misspelling words like early, strawberry, and question. That is the part that gets me the worst! These are words that any grade school child should know, let alone an adult!
If it isn’t the horrible spelling and even worse grammar, it is the total lack of propriety by the younger people as well. I have noticed so many people posting and talking about illegal activities and posting pictures. I have also noticed there is so much more profanity than there used to be. Do these people not realize that a lot of companies check your Facebook page when they are considering you for employment? Law enforcement also has access to your social media. That is something to consider the next time someone wants to put up illicit pictures of themselves online.
I wish that there would be more care and respect. I feel like some of the younger folks are just starting to fall so far away from that. I don’t blame media at all, I blame parents. There needs to be more parents taking an interest in their children so that they learn the consequences of their actions.
Don’t get me wrong with my rant, there are some great young people out there. They are out there because they had amazing parents. I want to see more of them, and less of the Jersey Shore type young adults.
