THUMBS UP EMOTICON: THE F*CK YOU OF THE TEXTING WORLD

What are your thoughts on the thumbs up?



humbs Up Emoticon: The F*ck You of the Texting World

I have been told to fuck off many times in my life. I have been spit at, and at one point, an article I wrote had half of Estonia looking to kill me (not a joke). So really, I can take bad shit pretty well. But you know what fucking grinds my gears? You know what gets my blood boiling to the point where I start turning green and end up ripping my purple pants into shorts?

When I send someone a text and they fucking send me the thumbs up emoticon as a response.

You fucking kidding me? It has become the passive-agressive ‘fuck off’ of 2018, and it truly belies a cowardice society full of passive pussies. If you use it as an adult instead of communicating your differences with someone, please consider TAKING YOUR OWN FUCKING LIFE! and yes, I’m serious. You are a child somehow inexplicably wearing adult skin and have you no place in this (somewhat) high-functioning society.

What It Says About You

One needs to understand, nothing says “I legit give absolutely no fucks about what you just said” as much as a fucking thumbs up emoticon.

1. And here I thought it meant that they agreed with and liked what you said.

Granted, maybe what you wrote required some further comment or conversation but without knowing that, I never saw it as an insult.

7. I try to avoid using it, especially with someone I am dating.

About the only time I ever use it is for a work related text like: Did everyone get the update? To which if I did then I do the thumbs up. But if someone goes into a lot of detail or is joking around having fun and I agree with them, I can't just do the thumbs up as it feels rude and like I put in no effort when they put a lot of effort in. I have to give an actual opinion / comment.

9. He had to see this coming, right?

I've never once thought the thumbs up was anything more that either agreement or a slight brush off at the worst.
