IF YOU TEXT ME ONE MORE SHORTENED VERSION OF A WORD, THE ONLY THING YOU'LL SEE IS MY FIST IN YOUR FACE.

11:59, I'm the same way. I type everything out, use proper grammar and my mother sends my texts like "hi hunni bunni i luv u" and I tell her it makes me want to die.
She's a teacher. An ENGLISH teacher.
I actually slapped my friend when I saw him the next morning after he sent me a text like that.
He didn't think I'd actually do it.
Fucker thought wrong.
this sucks and isn't funny
thank you thank you thank you <3<3<3<3
i have thought this so many damned times. :D
11:59 - same here. I use apostrophes and all... with T9 it's not like it's HARD to do. My mother's a big fan of shortening words via text, though. Makes me wish I never taught her how to do it...
haha im the one that shortens txts too.. my friends all get pissed off aswell.
ugh, shortened words are fucking annoying.
i totally agree
some how I think that it may be harder for my brain to process not adding vowels where they should be...rather than to actually spell out words?
12:10 maybe you didn't use them correctly? ;)
1-402 is my hero!! Full of WIN!
lmfao too hilarious!!!! Should be the standard reply for every message that nobody can decipher
My ex is THAT person too! Can't stand it. Use proper English Lil' Wayne!
fuck yes! man i dont even undersand what the first person was trying to say?
HAHAHA i would not be surprised if i knew the person that sent this.
& i agree. i can't stand people who shorten their words.
Short text is for douches. I hope someone actually got hit in the face for this.
"You'll" is a shortened version of "You will."
12:47 - don't blackberry phones have a full keyboard on them? D:
Also, I am now replying to all shortened texts with this message, damn people, it is not hard to type "to" or "too" instead of 2. Douchewaffles.
Thank you for giving me the Douchwaffles. But i will really have to kick the next person who i see do this in the balls/box
I know a girl who does this.... apparently she doesn't realize that it only serves to confirm that she IS, in fact, an idiot.
wow, apparently i'm not the only one to use proper english while texting while my mother sends texts that sound like a 3 year old wrote them
I love the person that responded. I DESPISE text talk. I think everyone who texts in shortened form is a wanker. Yes, I said it, WANKER.
Um...yeah I'm one of the dorks who spell out everything including using proper punctuation....my 65 yr old mother on the other hand.....snds txt tht lk lke ths.
THANK YOU. my god i hate those people
I hate this shit too. I got fired like that, once. I told him it didn't count because he misspelled more than 70% of the message.
^^^^^i'm a fairly visual person, I can't seem to get douchewaffles though
gah! my phone doesn't even have a full keypad and i still type words out and punctuate correctly.
it would piss me off to new extremes, though, to have someone who is fully qualified to use words properly refusing to do so.
YES!! eastern nebraska!! way to be.
amen i hate when people text like that. it drives me insane.
5:32 yes. He has the whole dang keyboard thing, and he still won't type anything out. It's so annoying. I have a chocolate and I type EVERYTHING out.
I feel like with T9 and stuff, it's actually hard to NOT text full words...
hahahahaha why would you ever thing typing like this is a good idea
You all are so ignorant. The reason most of us abbreviate texts is because with many phones they only give you 150 character to type what you have to say, its better than sending 2 separate texts.
I think I know that guy!!!
Eh- if you're still using a phone that only allows 160 characters to each text, I can see why you would shorten a few words- that's acceptable. However, if you're sending a text as short as the one posted, and you abbreviate it all, that is incredibly annoying!
^5 to slappin the fuck outta ppl for abbreviating EVERYTHING
agreed, 7:01 i hate multiple repeating letters in words that clearly do not require them
3:53. you'll is still an acceptable word that is part of the english language.
I generally use proper english while typing a text. With a full keyboard and the blackberry spelling thing that adds the apostraphies and periods it is really easy to do so. I hate it when people shorten the words so much. And to the people who say you can only send 160. There is this thing called multiple sms messages, or maybe just send an mms one(don't tell me you have an iPhone).
12:20, you are fake.
Oh how perfect.
EXCELLENT response hahaha
this annoys the crap out of me tooooo.
You go girl.
The person who said that is officially my new hero.
my sister does this and I tell her that I won't respond until she's less of an idiot.
my boyfriend texts like that. it makes me want to punch baby seals.
I swear it worse when they text like this: heyyy girll oomggg lastt nightt wwass soooo funn. I hate that too. The word 2morrow kills me because on most phones it requires people to press the same amount of keys.
LOFL...I hate it when people do that. Especially for words that don't need it.
Who the fuck in their right mind would live in Nebraska?
Love it! As an English teacher, a part of my soul dies when people abbreviate words ... especially my father, who has a PhD from Princeton!
Rock on, Nebraska!!
This is freaking irritating. Mostly, if I get a text like that, I stare at it for a few seconds and don't even bother to respond. I've repeated myself so many times!! I'm one of those people that will spell out 'you', 'tomorrow,' etc...LoL - I hate that NO ONE ELSE gives me the same courtesy!!
Thank you, UNL

Couldnt agree more!
I'm one of those people that text normal and when people send me texts like that i dont respond. When i speak to them later and they're all like, "why didnt you answer my text" i respond with "in school they taugh us to read WORDS so, ti can only read WORDS not LETTERS. Thats why i didnt answer." LOL. Their faces usually drop and they shut up. ^.^
I wouldn't be surprised if I know the person who was texting the shortened version. I love living in Eastern Nebraska sometimes. Kudos on being the first actually good post from 402!
i fucking hate this shit. when you text like a retard, it really shows your true intelligent level.
haha i HATE when people do that!
especially when they only put like 2 letters for a long word and i have absolutely no idea what they said. it's also wicked annoying when people do the whole 'omggggggggggggggggg noooooooooooooo wayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy' type thing. haha
402!!! awesome post!
abbreviated text fucking pisses me off.
the reply is epic!
Punch the MOFO out for me too.
It's called "text talk" for a reason. <3
This is why we have phones that make it infinitely easier to type our FULL WORDS.
@12:02, your mother calls you hunny bunny?
My last two girlfriends both told me off for using apostrophes in texts. They're both linguists!
lmfao, thats phenominal
LOVE ITTT. it's so true and so annoying hahhha
(1-402) may be my soulmate.
Lve it so col y nt cum hr
*kicks in balls/box*
I use correct punctuation and full worlds as well when I text. I hate getting answers with shortened words.
Get a full keyboard with your phone and take advantage of it. I hate it when people spell love like luv and say ttyl..... or gtg.... MIDDLE SCHOOLERS TALK LIKE THAT, not adults.
I agree with you 11:59, and 12:02, that's shit luck about your mom's texting ability. I'm a known spelling Nazi and people know I won't respond if you can't learn how to type properly. It does not take that long to add the 'y' and the 'o' to you. Awesome response though, I might have to use that one someday!
Why do I see that and think of Welsh?
I really hope this is Omaha. If it is, you're making mama proud.
I fucking hate that shit too. It is so annoying.
I fucking hate people who cannot text an entire word. Especially if they have a QWERTY keyboard.
I taught my mother t9, so now she types full words, but my dad has a blackberry and he shortens EVERYTHING. it's so annoying.
12:16 you're dumb.
@2:38 youre ignorant. this text is a whole lot shorter than 150 characters so clearly the sender wasnt doing it to shorten the text. it makes you seem like an idiot.
hahaha... fucking beautiful.
12:10 - Linguistics isn't necessarily concerned with punctuation or even "proper" spelling. BUT, as a linguist... WTF? What kind of linguists ARE they? :D
seriously hate when this happens.
biggest turn off for when someone wants on you.
great response. i'll be using it in the near future.
anyone who is anyone. nebraska fuckin rocks the midwest
You win, all the money.
3:01..."E-bonics" made me lol. good work champ.
ha, i hav a Blackberry which means no T9, so i rarely txt full words unless the phone corrects it into the full word, which happens alot.... ok tht and im normally txting whn i shuldnt and im trying to get caught... like in school, work, etc... so i try to type w/e im saying asap
im clapping right now
haha us 402-ers like correct grammar.
Nebraska! I really hope this is from Omaha.
Love, Omaha resident.
hahaha!! the best thing i have ever heard
this guy, dustin from nebraska used to do that to me. annoying as hell lol
Thank you. I hate this whole new english language that the kids have created with all of their texting and IM'ing machines boxes. It's like E-bonics.
Oh my gawd. I fucking love that response. I hate that shit.
Right?? Since when was it ok to leave out all the fucking vowels and still consider that a word?? I love this OP.
I bet the response was:
i'm glad other people get as upset as i do about this
i dont abbreviate, but i will end the sentence with a period, or if required a question mark. But yeah, takes way too much time and effort to figure out what they're saying, and its usually a pointless text.
Oh god yes. Amazing.
my sister, who has a phone with a full qwerty keyboard, texts like that. makes me want to punch her in the face.
Lol sumtimes domestic abuse is ok
my dad shortens everything like that when he texts, it's ridiculous. i am a nit pick about texting the full words and proper punctuation lol.
I feel like that's going to be me someday. Seriously, how is leaving out one letter doing anything but making you look illiterate?
Lmao! I totally know this guy, I used to date him ha ha haha
