I’ve always been very sensitive to abbreviations of laughter. I don’t mind LOL, well I do but what can you do, it’s in the damn dictionary now and we just have to accept it.
What I despise is ‘Ha” (quite often used with an exclamation mark which only makes it worse). It's terribly fake and lazy, also feels like a brush off and not really a laugh in any way. I have unfriended people on social media who say ‘Ha!’ too much, for obvious reasons. I pledge to bring back the hearty laugh and always mean it when I say HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.
Apologies for this serious post, I should have chosen Monday for it.
