Recently I've become somewhat addicted to scrabble on my smartphone. I played it non-stop one weekend. I'm not very good, so I lose more often than not. But what threw me off was the message that pops up on a game when the other person wins.
"Game over, you lost."
It was blunt, but I just started to imagine if other things in life worked that way. Like if your debit declines, "Declined, you're broke." Or when you're being let go, "It's over, leave. You suck." What about being broken up with, "Game over, you're dumped."
