What Is It With People And SMS Language? 

Once in a way SMS language texting is fine. But someone’s ought to set a limit.

Wishing a person “HBD” on their birthday is NOT cool. They deserve a lot better than that; at least on their birthday.

I find it absolutely annoying when I get pinged, “Wazza! Wtchu dng?”

ARE YOU REALLY TRYING TO GET ON MY NERVES? It is nothing short of maddening when people can’t spell fully.

I can understand when someone genuinely cannot spell. But if you can, I would love to read fully, correctly and properly spelt words, without any vowels knocked off or consonants tampered with.

It feels like I am so unimportant to the person on the other end that they wouldn’t care to spend 0.1 second typing an extra alphabet for me!

What is with ‘yew’, ‘ew’, and so on and so forth, as substitutes for ‘you’? Lazy to type y-o-u? Try ‘u’. I would prefer that to yew or ew. AND, if you can take the trouble to anyway type three alphabets-yew- why not just use that same energy and type – you?

Sometimes I just try to pacify myself thinking that they have some special kind of disorder.

A friend of mine once got a message from a “damn cool” guy on Facebook. The message read: Hlw bbz.. Hz ew dn? I lykd yo dp. Wud ew lykz frnz wid meh?

^ What was that? Seriously, what?!  I felt like throwing a dictionary on that guy’s face or if possible, enrolling him in an elementary school.

Honestly, everytime someone takes the trouble and types whole words and sentences, they instantly get 200 brownie points from me.

It is classy and impressive when people choose to go that extra mile to type whole words. Well, for me it is.

    I found out your blog site through community pool. Lovely articles you conjured up. It is said that human mind can read the sentences without any vowels but this SMS language is completely foreign. I found myself absolutely illiterate in terms of this.
    Now all the smartphones and web editors come with inbuilt dictionary feature which will right away give you prompt word than why these people not using the same is mystery to me. This practice is more damaging as I encountered few occasions when such short form seeped in to professional writing which is completely unprofessional and crude.

      Thank you very much for your comment and appreciation of my blog!
      I completely agree with you. People use the SMS Language so much so that they get used to it in a dangerous manner wherein they don’t know when to stop.
