I take it Oklahoma would be for more formal communications.

I too am a proper English texter. I refuse to respond to my kids if They opt to text me using texteese.

I tell them in the real world if you sen messages, emails etc using texteese they will not be considered seriously. I know that when I receive stuff like that from coworkers or subordinates I don't take them seriously.

No textese here either.

I will use "LOL" and I do use smileys though.

If someone texts me a message that lQQkz lyke dis I do not respond until they text again using English.

No ... they said you were a legend in your own mind ...

same here.

sometimes though I'll respond with their original text correctly spelled out, other times I'll just respond with a random picture of my foot or a light switch.

unfoundling: "wht??? that mks no sense!"

me: "neither does your text, buy a vowel".

I do think that LOL and such has been around long enough that it's acceptable and understood and no longer cool or uncool. it just *is*. meh.

although when I got a phone that had emoticons on it, I could hear my kids eyes rolling when I texted them .

I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

I love txting, been doing it since the start. For me, the txting makes sense because.....
I took and used shorthand for work years ago. To me txting is just like shorthand.

My kids don't like that I use "k". But it is ok to use r, u, 2 etc? Not sure why.

I am getting a big laugh out of this. My kids, including my dd's boyfriend of over 2 yrs, get on me all the time because I will be lecturing them by text and get tired of saying the same things over and over so I will say something like this; what did I tell you about not letting me know what you were going to be doing after work? You know how that upsets me..., instead of having to complete my sentence over and over again. In response I get; you and those stupid dots!!! So now I do it ALL the time, just between sentences for absolutely no reason other than I know it pisses them off!

I love the idea of texting them back potassium, I'll have to use that next time because they also hate when I say K. My oldest dd actually writes it out, Okay, in her texts.lol

Paybacks are a bitch kids...and your momma can be too! I figure this is the most harmless way I can get revenge for their teenage yrs! Lmao!

If you want to text me, you play by my rules and like it...otherwise, you can fucking call like a grown-up.

That's my philosophy on texting.

Oh, that and "any text exchange that goes beyond 5 texts had better be foreplay for sex, otherwise you're just trying to pissing me off."

If whatever it is can't be said in 5 text messages, it's likely too important for you to be thumb-typing it to the fucking cellphone I leave in Jeep 90% of the time anyway.

This is so inappropriate but it made me laugh (it's from damnyouautocorrect.com, if you haven't seen it you have to!)

College age daughter is trying to text her boyfriend but accidentally texts her mom: "I want to see you tonight, I am DTF"

Mom texts back: "what is DTF?"

Daughter, realizing her mistake, texts back: "down for food!"
