And we keep rollin’ . . .

Contrived slang

Nothing goads my grits more than someone saying something that makes them look like a total tool but they’re so delusional that they think they’re as awesome as the hipster clothes they’re wearing.  Whether it’s actually saying OhEmGee or spouting off with the gangster slang, it all makes me shiver.  That then translates to reading it in writing.  Come off as a poser in my school and you will be called out right quick.  Slang is one thing; trying to be too cool for school is quite another.  No one’s buying the shit you’re selling, dude.  Time to pack it away.

What about you?  What was it like in your school?  Leave your link in the comments!
