The kids have all their little SMS codes, like BFF, WTF, LOL etc. So here are some codes for the more mature.......

ATD - At the Doctor's
BFF - Best Friends Funeral
BTW - Bring the Wheelchair
FWIW - Forgot Where I Was
GGPBL - Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low
GHA - Got Heartburn Again
HGBM - Had Good Bowel Movement
IMHO - Is My Hearing-Aid On?
WAITT - Who Am I Talkin To?
GGLKI - Gota Go, Laxative Kickin In!

:giggle: :giggle:

Edit:this was posted by my friend on Facebook-it was not meant to be offensive in any way, but some people obviously believe otherwise! I was going to delete what I typed but then people have 'quoted' it so it would be pointless :(

Now, now !!!! Very below the belt and one day you will be the older generation.:D

Never forget the older generation might be your neighbour one day ( me !!)

I hate ageism but am not offended at all by your humorous post as I can relate to most of it for the anciana ( old lady ) I keep my eye on. Shopping with her is a nightmare.

Of course I am no where near all that myself lol :D

I can't stand the text speak!!

Oh me too Jodie. I abhor it and as I am so ancient, do not understand most of it.

It was not meant to be offensive in anyway, as it had been posted on fb as 'texting for over 30's which therefore includes me! As I'm nearly 33!

You got that dead right !!! No offense given and none taken.

Old is good, dead is is bad,

To be old is a bonus . To be old and appreciate your humour Welshtigger is brilliant.











You forgot some so I will add them.:D

ATD – at the doctor.
BFF – best friend fell.
BTW -bring the wheelchair .
BYOT – bring your own teeth.
FWIW – forgot where I was.
GGPBL – gotta go, pacemaker battery low.
GHA – got heartburn again.
IMHO – is my hearing aid on?
LMDO -laughing my dentures out.
OMMR – on my massage recliner.
WIWYA – when I was your age.
ROFLACGU – rolling on floor laughing and can’t get up.

Now do not go too far !!! Enough is enough.

Old is good, old is absoblutely amazing........thank you God, I am old:33::26::23:

I'm 22 and also can't stand text speak! My friends complain because I write everything out in full sentences and they end up with texts that are about 4 pages long oops!

My aunt on the other hand is deaf and so text is her main form of communication and I think it's rare for her to actually spell out an entire word!
