One day Musin draws my attention to how easy it is for a simple typo to completely ruin an entire conversation. Boy I tell you, SINCE THAT DAY, I have seen PLENTY people get RBT, myself included.
It’s a pretty simple concept. With millions of people using gchat, text message, aim, email, etc. a conversation can go from good to bad with one unintended stroke of an incorrect key. Sometimes it is so small you wont even know until the person replies, notifying you of your immediate downfall due to being RBT.
Don’t believe me?
1. Imagine sending an email that has been RBT to your boss. Something like the e-mail Musin sent his boss. Oh, what e-mail? This one…(Don’t kill me for this Musin but I could NOT let this one get swept under the rug.)
Hey (Insert name of Musin’s boss),
I just received an e-mail from a client who would like to change their program from standard to custom. Where do I go to ass the new changes?
RBT! Writing ASS to your boss instead of ADD can and WILL ruin you!
2. My ruining moment:
Clev: oh Musin, what a mess
so I tried to get into the club, but Rebecca wasn’t there
But dan was there, the dancer
Musin: Dan the dancer?
Clev: I mean, the bouncer
lmao, ruined by typo
3. Here’s one that happened an HOUR ago:
Girl: This man doesnt give up.
He should be looking for Obama
I mean Osama
Clev:: OH NO
(She just effed up Obama’s entire campaign with one typo. SMH.)
4. Let me introduce you to another recent victim and one of the WORST ones I’ve seen.
So, there’s this guy that I’m certain is gay (not that I believe there is anything wrong with this). But according to him, he’s straight, loves women, thinks they are hot, wants to do them, blah, blah, blah, you follow? Good.
He (we’ll call him John) has the following conversation via gchat:
Innocent Bystander: Stop being jaded by her (his ex-girlfriend) ..You’re tainted and you’re going to give the next girl a really hard time.
John: Not tainted…You are right I just need to focus on myself…I still want a wife and kids…I just need to focus on men
John: oops, *me
Ohhhhhhh noooooooo. Too late buddy. TOO LATE. TOO LATE. YOU ARE RUINED. Ummm are you really trying to hit me with a [ *me ]. TOO LATE. TOO LATE. TOO LATE. You’re fuckin’ done son!
(It doesn’t help that a few days later a gay man tried to hit on him in the club. Hmmmmmm. That is all.)
So please be careful out there folks. A typo will ruin you.
