how much coded language do i use?
i have recently been around several groups of people who constantly speak in language that is difficult to understand unless you are in their circle/sub culture. they used a ton of acronyms and and words that had meanings that only their group understood. i found it pretty frustrating because i was always having to ask “what does that mean?” they just assumed i knew but i had no context for knowing what they were talking about.
so now i am wondering how often and in what contexts i do the same thing.
SIDE NOTE with an image:
on a lark i decided to look on the internet for a list of questions. there are plenty. one of the lists i found was a feed of questions and answers on ask.com. some of them, like the one above, are quite funny.
