Putting a period after every word in a sentence in an attempt at dramatic emphasis has got to be stopped

this thing seems to have really taken off lately. it's so awful  :Yuck:

I. Do. Not. Like. This. Either.

I! AGREE! COMPLETELY!

Viral videos circulating on FB where the description contains 4-6 crying-laughing emojis.

people at work who instant message you saying "hey, have a question for you" and then won't ask the question until you respond to them.  just ask the effing question already, i don't need to say, "hey, how are you, what can i help you with".  they can tell i'm available ask the damn question smh.

I have a similar experience when getting IMs from offshore associates.  Kind of adorable but also annoying sometimes:


hi Brock

Hello

how are you today

I'm fine thanks.

I need to ask one query

Sure go ahead

guys at pickup games that say "and 1" for a foul when they weren't even shooting or long after they missed. It's only mildly annoying if you're in the act of shooting and it's not clear if you'll make or miss.

Mid shot is where that belongs. Otherwise just call for a foul.

Even then, who shoots free throws in a pickup game?

No one...but possession resets. Take it up top.

My coworker sits across from me and yells on the phone when he gets excited, when thinks things are going well with the candidate. He then stands up and starts walking around and it gets worse. He's a baby new grad, so I get it, but he has no consideration for his surroundings.
