I realize that, at 42 years old, I'm just that... old. Not as old as some, but older than many. And, while 42 may be, according to Douglas Adams, the "Answer to the Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything," it doesn't mean I really know anything at all.
Especially insofar as young people go.
As an example, take what happened to me last night while working some deals in an app called Quidd. (It's digital cards. You don't need much more detail than that.) Some n00b sent me a ridiculously lopsided offer. Lopsided in their favor, of course. I declined without comment and left it alone. A few minutes later, this comment comes back to me from the user in the chat window...
"Catnip you"? Is that an insult? A threat? A... whatever? Since when don't hashtags come accompanied by something else like text? That's how you search them. Even when hashtags were just pound signs on your phone, you still had to add some digits to make them function properly. I think as an emoji, a hashtag still has to have something for eyes, doesn't it?
So what the heck am I missing here? Should I be watching over my shoulder?
Can someone please enlighten this curmudgeonly geezer?
