I - A TEXT RANT

Ok, I was on another trivia site, and to my amazement, people there were using "i" for aye -- I think that's the dumbest, LAZIEST text thing, I have ever seen. I know, I am a dinosaur, in that I actually type out "you" and "are" but I also recognize that when texting via phone, it is so much easier to use "U" for you etc.... however I really think "i" is just moronic....
What's the dumbest thing you have seen, text wise?

Well, I don't know if this counts, but my wife used to leave me notes using medical shorthand and little icon gizmos and I would have to call her on the phone and have her explain because I was not a %^$#@&^ doctor.

I had to see and several times before I caught on to their meaning. Apparently it cries now also and is this :D the equivalent of LOL? I must admit they're quite clever.

I like emoticons, and I really like clever things, I still say i for aye, is just lazy!

It's so funny that actuall emoticons showed up in my text. I used colons and parentheses and apostrophes in the text of what I wrote. Isn't it weird how it got changed over? I spaced it out so they would be more evident and those real emoticons showed up!!

I myself am amazed at what fascination texters seem to have with former Secretary General Thant and the city of Abraham's birth. Generally, they don't come up in my conversations.
