My boss at work the other day was putting a sign up on one of the mirrors in the bar where I fill in. He initially put up the word 'Dessert's.' I said 'uh, what is the dessert possessing?' He looked at me and said 'you're right. You want to hear something even more retarded? I originally spelled it 'deserts.' After a laugh, I said, 'holy shit, I know, I can't spell for shit anymore. Or remember phone numbers. And my grammar is going to shit.' Essentially, spell check, grammar check and cell phones have ruined my ability to spell and remember phone numbers because I don't have to do it anymore. Focus: What skills have you lost due to technology? What technological advancements would you like to see because you don't have a particular skill? Is text speak making us all retards?
