When people write normal messages in text-speak, with all the misplaced apostrophes and weird words and numbers - it makes me feel nauseated. Not intellectually (well, ok, kind of, intellectually) but physically - it makes me sea sick to try and read it and work it out.

And it reads way slower than normal writing, giving the person a reaaaaallly slow voice as you read, which doesn't do them any favours either.

Arg! I wish people would stop! Or I could get some sort of magic translation glasses.

I have one friend who is an expert texter I guess, but I can't understand a damn thing he's saying unless I read it out loud usually, and read it over a few time. You're so right!!! I was going to write you a clever textish message but I'm no good at it and not even totally awake yet.

Ha! I'm glad you didn't! It really does upset my stomach :)

I'm waiting to get bashed for being snobby, and fair enough, but... well, it's just the way it is.

meh, lots of people are the same.
I tend to just respond with a rude "what?"
