U R an Idiot, and unemployable!

I hope the friend who told me this story does not mind my telling it. And "telling" is the word, for it describes the world of stupidity and post literacy we find ourselves in now.

She spoke to a woman who works in Research for a large Nashville hospital, and when this woman's department needed help, prospective help responded with their resumes. A handful of those resumes were written in text-speak, as though these ever- hopefuls were out on I-40 going 70- doing, you know, like the resume thing. After all, who wants to read all those stupid words? No one, it appears. The Research woman assured my friend that some things do not even merit a response. Just the "delete" button.
