Actress Kafui Danku has urged people to desist using shorthands in wishing their others birthdays and other occasions. In fact, it’s rude to do that – including forwarding of wishes too.
According to her, birthdays come once a year. It’s a special day for the special person you’re wishing. Therefore, if they spend enough time to write Happy birthday than to use HBD, then they shouldn’t wish. After all, the person they are wishing doesn’t worth their time.
Also, she expressed that HBD can mean anything.
“Charley people, why do you write HBD instead of "Happy Birthday”
This celebration is only once in a year o.
Why not mean and wish the person well.
It means ‘Had Been Drinking’
HBD could mean anything.”
As a result, Kafui Danku has urged people to keep it as simple as “Merry Christmas” if they can’t compose their own messages. Thus, it’s rude to forward wishes on such occasions.
“It’s a lazy way of wishing someone.
Christmas is almost around the corner, if you can’t compose your own true messages, keep it at “Merry Christmas” simple!
It’s rude to use abbreviations/ short hands or whatever and also be forwarding outdated messages.
Akpe na mi.“ She concluded.
And oh! She is just the mouthpiece of so many people. The comment section of the post was flooded with thank yous for speaking their minds. Apparently, many people distaste the act.
Per analysis a follower made, during such occasions, they will receive the same message or wish from almost all the contact in their list. As a matter of fact, the wish doesn’t feel special and unique anymore.
