My son will text my wife, my wife will text him back, the son will text back, She sends a final text. Total elapsed time 3 minutes. All this done in text speak. The same son will call me, we talk and cover more of the same topic. Total elapsed time 15 seconds. All spoken in full sentences.

I hate text speak. I love touch screen smart phones (used to hate them) because it's so fast to just type out the full sentence.

^ +1

texting doesn't interrupt like a call might...it certainly has it's place.
But for the love of God, please type out full sentences. I will not waste my time trying to figure out what you're saying...

One thing I've noticed is that I don't even read posts anymore than have the "word" u instead of you.

I mean, I start to read something like "Help! Is my beer ruined" and then I see u in the post, and I'm done!

Yooper also keeps the windows open so she can yell at kids to get off her lawn!

I've got an app that I've never tried that is supposed to convert speech to text, so I could feasibly talk into my phone and it will send it as text.

[vent] One person here posts a lot but doesn't use the space bar after punctuation. It kept pi$$ing me off, until I found the ignore feature yesterday. Yeah! [/vent off]
