if they want too not spell with vowels they dont have too, at the end of the day texting is practically the same as this anyway so hush up. i dont see why its such a big problem anyway to be honest, shows you have nothing better to say. if you dont have anything nice to say dont say it.

IF they want TO spell withOUT vowels they CAN. AT the end of the day, texting is practically the same as this anyway so hush up. I DON’T see why IT’S such a big problem. TO be honest, IT shows you DON’T have ANYTHING better to say. IF you DON’T have anything nice to say, DON’T say it.

Point being…it doesn’t show that they don’t have anything better to say, it shows that you, along with the gd jb yay lol idk, etc., above you are illiterate.

(18) Lynn says:

Who would have thought this would turn out to be a discussion on spelling? If you don’t want to use vowels in your comments, or punctuation, then don’t. The problem is when you try that in the workplace people may wonder if you are: an idiot, uneducated, immature (as in a high school or college kid) or even disrespectful. (Especially if you try it with your boss.)

Hey guys!
Instructions ( works for me – Hollywood look )
1. Part your hair and do two plats on either side of your head
2. Leave them in overnight.
3. Run over your plats with a hair straightner until they are hot and flat looking.
4. Take them out, and what ever you do, DO NOT brush your hair, otherwise it will get fuzzy.

Hope that helped!!!

I doubt my workplace would even care about the way i type on the internet. They have far more better things to do than worry about how i spell in my free time. Just because i miss a vowel or two doesnt make me immature. But people like you commenting on stupid little useless things make you immature…

(24) Dee says:

this take too long for me as my hair is quiet short aswell. for a better solution…wash your hair and condition well using your usual shampoo and conditioner then towel dry apply boosting spray shockwaves for best results, whilst you spary this tip your head upside down and masarge then get some moose into your hands and apply all over hair squeeze it and grab it then get some hairspray grab a section of hair hairspary and hold for 3 seconds then drop carry this on all way around the hair finally blow dry your hair 2-3 miniutes and rehairspray, finally add your finsihing touches eg. curling iron bobby pins and do any hairsyle you want! to make the hair stay in place longer hairspray every 2-3 hours. for this hairstyler it should take 15minitues :)

How funny was all those coments, it’s just a small artical about hair styling, nothing more…. who has the right to say how someone wants to spell, lol, made me smile tho !!

(29) Briana says:

Oh my goodness, these comments made my night.
Thank you, immature, drama-loving ladies for amusing me.
I try to find a funny video on the internet to make me laugh
but right here does the trick.

Who cares if someone spells w/ vowels or not?
By the way, just letting you know that if you argue with
what I’m saying,
you’d simply be arguing with a 15 year old so don’t even put yourself in that position.

Lynn, why are you hating on college kids? Plenty of us are intelligent enough to manage proper grammar and spelling, thank you.

(33) Jtiff says:

Wow. Most of the people on here can’t even spell. Who cares? Okay, I’m an English major and it drives me nuts to read text-like posts, poor grammar usage and tons of spelling mistakes. You know what? I’ve probably made one or two already. No one is perfect. GET OVER IT!

For those who have tried and can’t get good, or maintainable results, definitely try the curly girl method.

Basically, through a series of cleanups, eliminating sulfates from products you put in your hair (which is why some people call it no-poo), and some love, the natural curls in your hair will come out, and maintaining it will be no-hassle.

(35) Christine says:

I LOVE THIS! My hair is always straight, limp, and boring… I wish I would’ve seen this first because I think I tried 1,000 things before I finally found something that worked for me. I’m still going to try this though! If you’re interested in trying out what worked for me you can get the instructions here http://www.weartostandout.com/blog/how-to-get-perfect-wavy-hair and tell me what you think! xoxo, WearToStandOut
