Jesus wept! MU, that's just bordering on the absurd if you ask me. Why don't we just go the whole hog and make a grunting sound and point at what we are referring to, we will have gone full circle then, back to the caveman way of communicating.
People are just too lazy to even talk these days. I get text messages that read:
Hi M. How R U 2day? R we goin out l8r? Txt bk.
What in the name of all that is holy is that shite all about? We have lost countless customs through the decades and traditions are falling by the wayside....slowly but surely. What I am saying is, as human beings we owe it to ourselves to at least try and preserve our bloody language FFS.
Whoever invented that text talk bollocks should be nailed to a wall and they should then be pelted with Alphabet Spaghetti making sure to use just the T, W, A and another T.
I'm not well educated, I don't mind admitting it. It was beyond my control the circumstances that affected my life, outside factors made me what I am, who I am or whatever. But the one thing I did cling to for dear life was the correct use of our language. If you speak well and write well in your own language people just assume you're educated, and that was all I had.
It got me my house, my kids never go without and it paid for my dream car, which was almost as much as the house but that's another story.
The moral to the story here is 'cling to the fact you can speak good English and make the most of it'.
Without checking back on my own posts on these forums, I would hazard a guess that I have written 'Manchester United' out in full when I refer to them. If not, I have written 'United'. I might be wrong, I'm guessing, I'm sure someone will tell me if I am wrong.
This phrase 'Man U' is frowned upon as we all know. But for your own sakes and not for the sakes of others, write 'Manchester United'. Not Man Utd, not Man United or any other shite. MANCHESTER UNITED !!! See, I did it again and it is painless, trust me. It's their name and there is no need to change it. Laziness makes us change things, to make them shorter. People will, and do, think better of you when you write and speak properly and it can make a difference to your life if people think well of you.
