    Smilies

    You know people that use smilies like this '(:'. They fucking piss me off.

    Let me tell you why.

    First, let's all agree that everyone reads left to right. This is common knowledge, correct? Rhetorical question, unless instructed otherwise most people do.

    Okay, now, when you look at a person, do you look at their eyes or mouth first? If you're not socially awkward, you look at their eyes first, of course. It is how you let someone know you're listening to what they're saying.

    Therefore, when typing smilies, in order to make them easily readable to the masses, it would make an astonishing amount of sense to make the smiley left to right. In addition to that, as stated above, eyes first, mouth second. Rendering the smiley as such ': )', rendering this smiley '(:' as half backwards.

    tl;dr If you don't want to read, don't come to a fucking forum, douchebag.

    Haha.

    And it mostly is girls that type it backwards anyway.


    Also, what the fuck is this: :3.

    Looks like eyeballs on a nutsack. Or buttcheeks. Or some kind of fucked up saggy nose.

    Pisses me off too bro. Not because of all the common sense of where you look. Just because it looks fucking retarded.

    I agree on the common sense part, but you can't criticize everything everyone does.. It's just a smiley face, deal with it.

    I totally agree that it's annoying when people type their smilies like that. But you put entirely too much time into it.
