“Text me like you got some sense.”
I recently got a text message that read something like this….. “I fuk wit da wai u put dat dey need to __/ cause dey b on dat dumb (emoji shit symbol) I fuks wit da wai u (emoji mouth symbol) dats good $ ma real gud (emoji shit symbol).” *_* Ummmm WTF (acronym for what the f*ck) is that?? Does that mean good? Acronyms and Emoji have really changed the game up!!! How can you really have a conversation through text message filled with acronyms and symbols?? Now while Id rather text than talk on the phone, don’t I need to understand what your saying?! What happened to good ole plain English or even “Ebonics” as a standard way of communicating??? If your under the age of 18, I understand that one may text backward e’s and I’s instead of y’s but damn if you’re an adult, shouldn’t really communicate like one!! I expect my daughters and “tween” friends to communicate with misspellings and words to mean other words, “new age slang”. I expect this from my daughters because guess what? They are kids! Adults should communicate like an adult via text, email and all other written forms! You never know who may read something you wrote.
Fluffy Note: Every group of friends has their own “text language” ..I’m not referring to this. SBJ! (Sweet baby Jesus)
