What is with some people's tendency to use ... instead of a straight up period?
Like, I understand when you're looking for a response but this happens in the middle of an email...but not like this use. It's used in place of a period.
Can someone explain this tendency?
@brandon stands for "and so on"
@DistroJunkie I know what it stands for, I wanna know why people don't use it that way :P
@brandon Well when you have an idea but aren't sure how to complete it/think it's obvious enough for the other person to complete it...
@brandon I think it's ... People trying to type like they talk. There is sometimes a need for a full stop. But there are other times sentences trail into each other... like this one.
People have forgotten how to speak in the digital era. I know what bothers me is when people start throwing in "like" when texting or emailing. It's bad enough to overuse it in verbal conversation but even worse to type it out.
@brandon because they’re illiterate?
@kev That's quite unfortunate as these are the people preparing performance reports
@brandon i had an inurance agent that did that a lot.
