I am a text message idiot. I am proud to say that I know how to send a text message, but I am completely lost on all the new abbreviations and lingo. Unless the word I am abbreviating is VERY obvious, I will text the entire word. I only just learned how to use the T9 or !TapEng function on my phone...which, btw, is awesome. Apparently, there are hundreds of new abbreviations, but most of them seem entirely useless. If you're going to go through all the trouble to have a text conversation, then why don't you just call the person?
