Hi all, js wondering if u cud help wit I downloaded d iPhone iWatchr app n I dnt knw hw t convert it 2 pp it's sayn I js click calculator at d end of screen bt mine hasn't gt dat is dis rite or is evry1s like dat??? So confused :-(
You wont get complaints Other than from bolshy folk like me but so long as youre aware people WILL avoid threads with text speak so you wont always get the help you want. Youll get a lot more replies etc if you can post 'normally'
I dont mind the rofl and lols etc but why do people text in a way they dont talk. My pals kids do it, the dis and dat and honestly theyve never said dis OR dat in their life and whats with the lack of vowels?? I could understand it when people were charged per text they sent, trying to keep things down but almost everyone has inclusive texts now.
Maybe Im the opposite extreme I even punctuate my texts lol One of my pals is a company director and her texts are appaling, its nonsense, its not the way she talks or writes so why regress to a 12 year old on texts
I think dis complaining of text language is ridiculous I like to shorten my words I'm 22 it's wat "most" of us do we dnt text d way we tlk i dnt see the problem atal I'm nt tryin to be rude bt if I want to use "dis or dat" i can sorry if ppl dnt understand it's nt that I'm trying by be annoying it's js habit! Were all here for support on weight loss not silly comments about the way ppl are writing there posts.............thank for d help wit the iwatchr app I'l try srt it sorry if I came across rude
Well it's diff when your writing letters I'm a hairdresser so I wudn hve tat problem haha it's not even about saving characters it's just a thing u do growin up my mam always says it and she's a school teacher she see's it alot it's just new generation new times thats why its called text language it shouldn be offensive, I speak in a very nice manner doesn mean I can't shorten my words it's just as I say force of habit now i prob should shake it off but it's just a thing u do il hve to make sure to examine peoples threads now lol
Now see that was SO much easier to read that last post when you only shortened a few words
its not in any way offensive, not at all, its just offputting to see and lots of people, myself included tend to see text speak posts and think 'You know what Ill not bother' and move on to the next thread
Only one thing wrong with that! You're not txting a friend you're using a public forum where the majority of people write in grammatically correct English!
It isn't used by everyone either not one of my boys friends use it and they're both 17.
Well I honestly don't see the prob but in future i'l try to make it work prob won't come back in this again now I mite even delete my account bcoz I thought it was mre about helpin people with der weight making friends rathr than commenting on sum1s textin obviously most people have something to say about it, every1 to there own tho will take into consideration if I'm back on thanks again for the opinions appreciated...
Hi my brother texts dis and dat and wot etc and i find myself texting him back the same way its as if i think he'll only know what i'm on about if its in his language so to speak makes me chuckle in an affectionate way when i get his texts love him but it does take along time to work out what he says if your not used to it.
Ye exactly I understand it can be very hard to understand it's not a prob to send a text as ppl say "normal" bt it's js habit dis way frm years of txtn I know it does be hard at 1st it's nt bein lazy it's honestly js habit on some words u dont even realize ur doin lol maybe sum ppl cud say it silly but I just see it as a txt maybe not suited for this site bt it's habit.
