Pet Peeve

This isn’t a full blown rant, but I loathe the acronym “RIP” when reporting someone’s death. Seriously.  This is the internet, folks, not a carving in granite. You don’t pay by the pixel. It doesn’t take more than a second to actually type out the “Rest in Peace.”

The RIP just strikes me as flippant.

Maybe it’s just me….

  2. I’m surrounded by TLAs all day. I don’t think the dead need one as well.
