Is it just me?!!!

Is it just me or does this 'da examz' type writing really wind anyone else up too?!

I find myself unwilling to reply to people who cant even be bothered to speak properly.'its not funny and its not clever' as my mother would say.

GRRRR!! rant over!

No, not just you  ;) though I guess a balance has to be found between excessive formality and relaxed and informal

I suspect that a lot of it is just showing off though ! - why on earth examz for exams ???

Hopin' dat ths dont trn into a flaimr

Ahhhh...so it's not just me!

I hate it too!

Imagine my surprise when I got a text from my v. proper consultant asking if I was around in teeny text-speak that only Vicki Pollard would understand! :o

Phew! And here I thought I was becoming an old fuddy duddy!

Well.. that's why it's called text speak. When it's used on a website or in prose is when it's annoying. I regularly text my friends with 'where r u' or 'c u soon'- no way am I writing the full thing when I'm in a hurry!

downsize is da buzz word, save time and effort,[ whn ur txtin u can save money too].

whts da difference as long as u understand n convey da meaning.

this is not an exam!

i m sure u wil b ok once u get used to it.

probably shows how badly v limit ourselves amongst doctors. the whole world is doing it.

but i guess. it can be very annoying when u cant read something fluently.
