It seems to be an epidemic these days with the younger generation, not just teens and tweens but even people in their 20's. The epidemic is smiley faces typed the wrong way. It may be a small thing but it annoys the crap out of me.

It goes to show that text lingo, even though it is faster and an effective way to send messages, is causing people to not know the proper way to type a smiley face. We read left to right, like you are doing right now, so why would you type the smiley face like this: (: ??? PLEASE, I'm begging you type your smiley faces the correct way!!! :) :) :) :) :)

Just in case you didn't get it, this is wrong- (: This is right :)
