Dear, Ameba; Sincerely, Pico
Written by: ROM-eo™
Have you ever by any chance received a letter on Pico with such horrible grammar and spelling that you would think that it needed to be translated just to get some sort of understanding of it? These letters could just show up randomly without even knowing person that sent it to you. You would think when you got notified that you received a letter it would contain something uplifting, flattering, or cheerful. But, then you view your letters and see that you are now being harassed. You are now being sworn at and insulted with language that shouldn’t even be suitable for a sailor. I thought letters were supposed to be enjoyable, but some just chose to abuse that privilege.
Have you ever noticed that the people who curse at you tend to have atrocious spelling and grammar? They think that their “sentence enhancers” will make their insults more effective, but actually it makes them look uneducated and atrocious along with their horrid spelling and grammar. These people also tend to hide behind their curse words in order to make up for their lack of intellect. It’s like that one person in your class who is not only ugly, but also rude. You tried to overlook their appearance and find something pleasant within their personality, but because they are rude it depletes your respect for them. We should also feel sympathy for these people, because they are acting foolish and they can’t even see it. There isn't a need to retaliate back either because they have already made themselves look like simpletons.
Not all letters are harassments.
Like, me you probably look forward to receiving a letter.There’s that moment when you hear the notification sound then you open your letters tab and then there is a letter; it’s like magic. It means a lot to know that someone cared enough to send you something. Someone took the time out of their day to send you something thoughtful and that truly is kind. Even if they didn't say much or if they just said “hi” it’s the little things that put a smile on your face.
I hope you all continue to receive positive letters during your Pico experience. If you are being harassed through a letter just discard it and remember that person isn’t worth your time. Lastly your vocabulary should include profanity because it will make your personality seem ugly.
