That's right- I admit it. I find it very hard to read your Facebook posts that say "I C RU sure?" So, I'm not going to do it anymore. That's right! If I have to try to figure it out, I'm not going to bother.

I speak English and only English. If your keyboard is too small to type on, that's too bad! If you simply write like that because you're a person who doesn't care enough for my old eyes, then I will NOT answer.

Even here in this forum, if I see a single "how do u make beer" question, I will not answer. If you don't have enough time to type that "yo" before the "u", then why the heck should I type out a comprehensive answer? Oh, and the lack of punctuation! I guess that it's hard to use periods while texting. Well, I can't read a wall of text that doesn't capitalize the pronoun "I" nor uses periods.

I have a relative that will send a note: i am hoping to come and c u over the holidys if i can get a flight 2 u when i can ru ok 4 that

Um, he's 40. And he has three computers, so it's not like he's struggling on a blackberry.

No more. I'm on strike against textspeak. Are you with me? If you are, say, "no txtspk 4 me i c u r gr8".

I don't mind the "R U," the "U," the "yr" or some of the other abbreviations, but some of the stuff drives me batsh!t craxy.

"wel" for well

"frm" for from

for starters.
