This short, snappy, pointless and patronising post is dedicated to the art of texing and aksing.
“I tex you”
“Did you aks me?” (pronunciation guide: aaarks).
Why oh why oh why can’t these words be said as they should be?! I am a dysfluent, always-in-recovery stammerer so being 100% articulate will never be my thing, but…..really.
Is the nation really a slew of Jeremy Kyle-glugging buffoons?
Does any attempt at pronunciation just get left at the back door of JD Sports? (or indeed JD Wetherspoons).
“Asked”. Try it.
There is a whole new ‘ker-duh” added that needs to be in there.
And “I sent you a text”. Or, “I texted you”, if you really must.
Next time I hear either of these two gems the perpetrator is going to have a Giles Brandreth/Stephen Fry marathon, Clockwork Orange styleeee.
Don’t agree? Tex me and tell me why. I aks you.
