Texting Lingo = Foreign Language
I'm not a big texter to begin with and I never do it in the car, unless its parked. There are a few people that I will text with but not for huge lengths of time. I have a cousin in Michigan and we text because we have kids and its easier than talking on the phone. I tend to confirm times with our sitter through text because she is in college and I don't want to bother her. Other than that, I just don't get it. Why don't people want actual human contact with people anymore? My niece would love to have texting on her phone but my sister gave a thumbs down on that one. She is almost 15 and the prime age for this foreign language. I had a friend that when her daughter had a slumber party two girls at the party were literally texting each other from across the room. Wow! I've even seen a father and daughter at dinner where she was sitting across from him not even engaging in conversation because she was too busy texting her friends. The sad thing is he never told her to put the phone down!
Watch, she will come back and say she's not close to her dad because they never talked when she was growing up!

I can see why they use these abbreviations because this way they can text faster but this is why they don't talk to each other. I'm just curious how their grades are!
I'm guessing if Seniors text at all this is how they would text...............
