“he he he”

Everyone uses instant messenger (IM) and text messaging these days and because of that we have developed ways of expressing sounds and reactions through letters and symbols (i.e. lol = laugh out loud). Sometimes I think people take it too far and get lazy so they just type the first letter of every word they want to say and expect the person on the other end to understand. I believe we may even be close to creating a new language. I might even add it to my resume under languages, fluent in writing and reading and conversation capabilities. However, like every language there are certain words that you just don’t use anymore after a certain age and there are words that are more masculine or more feminine.

This brings me to the main topic of this post. Is it ok for a guy to type “he he he” to indicate that they are laughing? I don’t think so. When I see “he he he” typed in a dialogue box all I hear is a little 5 year old girl laughing at her kitten playing with yarn or playing hopscotch in the yard. Sure that’s a pleasant picture but not when the dialogue is coming from a 28 year old guy. Be a man, say “ha ha ha” or just a simple “lol.” I’m not sure if it’s a clever way of dropping the masculine pronoun or something, but stop it. It make you sound like a giddy school girl. That’s just my 2 cents.

For those of you that are trying to learn this new language, here is a cheat sheet for you.
