Do You Mean It

I'm not a big fan of fake niceties in the first place, but if on Dec 15th you send me a message that says:
HBD WULLNP
I'm going to find it extremely hard not to slap your face to believe that you actually mean it. Why can't you write it out? If you took the time to form as if you care, then you could have taken the extra 30 seconds or so to write it out.

Nonsense (and ingredient)! (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻


For the benefit of the audience HBD WULLNP = Happy Birthday, wishing you long life and prosperity

This rant was brought to you by the letter L (for lazy mofo's who can't wish people a happy birthday properly)

Hope you're all having a great week folks :)

    1. i don't even know if its ever actually happened to me. but then again, i don't really pay attention to bday messages. I just happened to see one of my cousins wishing my other cousin a happy birthday that way

  4. My thoughts exactly dear.
    Its becoming the norm to abbreviate every phrase these days its becoming annoying.
    Some people don't even know what some of these abbreviations mean but use it just to belong.

    1. lol, i can't imagine using an abbreviation if i didn't know what it was. how does that even work?!? just silly.

  5. I remember writing about this on Twitter some time ago. If a person can't write it in full, they should just keep that HBD for themselves. Afterall, it's not by force to say happy birthday to someone. I just feel like they don't mean it when it's abbreviated.

    1. unfortunately some people really do mean it but they are so addicted to text-speak that they can't help themselves (well thats the excuse i'm giving them). still not cool though

    1. lmbo @ passing virtual slaps

      I don't even get it. how difficult is "happy birthday"? And wullnp...it takes more energy for me to remember what letters to use to abbreviate it than to actually spell it out lol

  7. That was why i removed wall postings on my birthday. Just keep the bs to yourself and save us both the trouble: You writing it and me deleting it :)

  8. We are on the same page on this one. It's the height of laziness. I have been tempted to put a status update telling people not to bother posting on my wall if all they have to say is HBD, but u know how naija people are, make dem no go curse me behind my back. I'm never on facebook on my birthday anyway.

    1. i usually turn off my notifications on my birthday so as not to be disturbed and only really acknowledge actual messages/wishes. hbd, wullnp, and the like don't make the cut

      Delete
    2. Exactly! I turned it off. so its only my real friends who remembered and you can trust that they didn't write HBD. Hate that sh$t.
