Engrish got me like

I saw this the other night and lost my shit.
Finishes. The word that ends the above sentence is finishes not finish, ffs.
Regarding correct grammar, I lose my junk on a daily basis. (an annoying Word Nazi? Guilty as charged)
Do I use words on a daily basis that make people scratch their heads wondering what said word means?
Sorry. I do. It’s a word thing and I make no apologies because it’s in my hard wiring.
Profanity doesn’t bother me.
On occasions, I can even deal with commonly misspelled words. (I know. Unreal.)
But what is up with this sudden dropping of tenses and random obtuse meanderings of the English language?
Does anyone talk like this?
Or write like this?
Or communicate like this?
Sweet cheeses, I think not.
And if they do, get a helmet, your damn head needs a quick (and possibly violent – not violet) shake.
I guess it’s the way the web and the world-at-large works these days with all its apparent abbreviations.
Hell, my wife even thought ‘a/f ‘ was a shortened version of Abercrombie and Fitch.
Maybe it’s me, or maybe I’m just too set in my ways, or maybe I should just shut the hell up because it will never change.
No sense in reinventing the wheel, methinks.
Or maybe I’ll just listen to Samuel L Jackson’s advice and go the fuck to sleep.
Sounds like a plans . . .
