Had to copy and paste it.
It would have been easier just to type, "No text speak for me! I see you are great!"

I haven't been called a young whipper snapper in awhile. Just for that, 1 free Valentino's pizza is being delivered to you as we speak

Not really; but thanks anyways

I'm only 22 and pretty knowledgeable with computer usage, but I'm still not 100% sure what that's suppose to mean...maybe it's just the beer blocking out my weaker brain cells so I don't know what it's suppose to mean...

Actual texts from a friend of mine - he's pushing 40:

Quote:
Any words yet that would drive us 2 have 2 resched things 2mrw?!?
Quote:
Wots ur final decision n plan??
Quote:
Can 1 of u send me a msg that u made it bak?!? Thanx!
That's right, he'll type "decision" yet abbreviate "what's." He'll take the time to type several question/exclamation marks but skips consonants at seemingly random places. I think he just texts that way because he thinks it's cool. I find his efforts mildly entertaining.

But...I'm with Yooper. Get off my lawn.

Bt Yoop, txt spk is so cl. U jst do it by lvng out mst vwls rt? (not sure that was correctly done...)

I buy phones with full key boards and turn on auto-capitalise just in case I miss an 'I' by accident. Even with my on screen keyboard I have to do things right... and I'm 27, so don't feel so old!
