The 21-year-old shared a video, noting that “some of my friends are pressed about the way I write letters.” She then went on to show her followers why her friends are so upset: As you can see in the video, Patton has a rather unusual way of writing the letters M, N, W, B, R and, perhaps most upsettingly, X.
(For the last one, she first creates the top half of the X before finishing off the bottom half. WHO DOES THAT?)
The overwhelming majority of TikTok users sided with Patton’s friends on this one. Some even joked that there should be a trigger warning on the video — that’s how upset they were.
“This made me mad for no reason,” one person said.
“This triggered a feeling I never knew I had,” another added.
“I hope both sides of your pillow are warm,” a third joked.
Other people simply could not believe that the video (and method) were real. After all, Patton’s way of writing letters would only slow her down — so what’s the point?
“You literally made these letters more difficult to write,” one person said.
“There’s no way,” another added before challenging Patton to “write a whole sentence.”
“When we learn to write we learn to write fast to keep up with our thoughts,” a third person explained. “Either you were taught to write slow or this video is for attention.”
Whether or not the video is fake, Patton seems to understand that the letter-writing technique is irritating. Her TikTok bio currently reads: “Follow to see more things I do that annoy others.”
