Object 1 - the exclamation point

A former coworker had an abiding aversion to exclamation points. I did my part to help her via flooding therapy, but no matter how many exclamation point-riddled emails I sent, she never improved. I kinda hate them too. I use them – just as I’ve been known to type out LOL or OMG. I hate those, too. But I still use them.
