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 It's the text equivalent of the valley girl rise at the end of sentences. Or at least that's my theory.
@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.
@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.
