The reason I use lot of smileys . It is simple. I exploited , I used them in every text message and most of my mails,chats and blogs.
All was well until I read a mail in which some researchers from some country in some lab decided to make a research on the smileys:(.Are people that jobless? According to them,people who use smileys frequently are considered flirtatious and want attention all the time.
I may not know who I am but at least to some extent, whom I am not (confusing? that is the whole point).I ignored the research as baseless and useless.
The problem started.It was like this;every time I used a smiley,I had second thoughts.However I tried to ignore,the mailed flashed before my eyes. To add to my woes, my sister also mentioned reading something on the same lines somewhere. That is when I started using lot of *cough cough*,*grin grin* and *ahem ahem* s.
In spite of all this,I simply couldn't stop using smileys but I often wonder if all this is what is called human psychology. Why ponder into things that are unnecessary and followed by large mass. Consider people start researching about eating habits and claim if a person gulps food in a go ,he is considered intelligent??!!
Sigh!!However hard we try to ignore all the "research based " issues,it lingers in our minds whenever we perform the act.
Curses curses!! :( :( :(
P.S. ; I named the post as "brick bats" because I liked it.Hope some researcher in Iceland hasn't got any problems with it.Hello!!Haven't they got their "entire country devolving" problem to solve??
