People who use SMS talk really shit me, as The Sandman used to say.
I can understand it on a phone which is hard to type nice long expressive words on and which you have to pay for, but when you have the pure luxury of a nice big, full featured keyboard, is there really any need?
LOL doesn't tell anyone much, you're probably not really laughing out loud. It's at it's worst when typed at the end of every sentence.
My brain flashes "Moron Alert" in big red letters.
OMG is another annoying one, granted some bogans are always saying "oh my god" while they speak to friends, as though every other thing they hear is a major shock to their innocent virgin ears.
I'm not the kind of guy who's easily annoyed, but when I get an ICQ/Skype message such as "R U there I really want 2 talk 2 U" well, frankly I get pretty pissed off and want to get the conversation over and done with, probably mute them too.
Then there were word fads, right now everythings "Epic",
but not long back things were "Extreme" or "Mega".
Will be glad when Epic has had it's fifteen minutes of fame too and ends up in a smokey bar telling the other words how famous He was back in the noughties.
I really hate "Ewwwwww" too, I feel like taking a rolled up newspaper to those who say it.
