  • What is the meaning of the ellipse in this message?

    Hi everyone, I recently reviewed another message on Facebook after I was feeling very stressed/lonely. It said: 'Just because you don't always talk to friends doesn't mean they aren't always there for you. Also, please never assume that a person doesn't care about you just because they haven't told you so...' Please... show more

Please could you help me interpret this message- I really struggle to do myself (quite severe Aspergers...) Why did he use an ellipse and not a full stop at the end of his second sentence, and what is the meaning of the message?

I have normally thrown any spiders out of the window until recently when I read that often they can't adapt or get back in so freeze to death. Is this true? Which of the above (quick squish or throw out of window) is the most humane way of removing house spiders?

I sent a copy of my speech to the event organiser. She said 'Your speech is great! I'm sure the audience will appreciate your sentiment'. The first part of her feedback appears really positive, but I'm not too sure of the meaning of the second part of her feedback? What did she mean by 'appreciate your sentiment'? Is this also positive?

  • Is 'Hello, you!' affectionate or used when you have forgotten someones name? (UK)?

    Someone recently said this to me whilst I have been at home from University. They said it in quite an upbeat voice. I hadn't seen them for at least two years prior to this. Is it a sign that they had forgotten my name, or an indication they were pleased to see me?

    Hi everyone. A couple of months ago I was outside chemistry class. It was near the end of the period, so I was waiting to do in to the classroom. I overheard a girl in my year group talking to her classmates, some of whom I thought were my friends. It was clearly about me, as I heard my name being used in their discussion. She said something about me which was quite fast so I couldn't make it out. However, what I did hear has stuck with me since - 'he's a freak - I don't like him'. I have never felt so low after hearing her say that, and there hasn't been a day since it was said (in April) that I haven't been thinking about it and getting upset about it. I have Aspergers, so I guess that I am a bit socially awkward. I faced a lot of bullying throughout years 7-11, so I thought that when I went to sixth form it would be better (I was in Year 12). Should I just accept what she said, and call myself a freak for the rest of my life? Was she being mean, or is this true/normal for people to say? I KNOW that they were talking about me, and worse, she said it to people who I thought were my friends when I wasn't there, and they did NOTHING to defend me. They practically agreed with it...
