I'd Like To Buy A Vowel ~ Help With Texting

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Realty 0575737

Text PhoneI sometimes think in my Real Estate career I should have snatched up Vanna White as an assistant long before Pat Sajak latched on to her with Wheel of Fortune. Not only would I get more male clients because of her persistently good looks even with getting older but she could help me deciphering the world of texting.

   Can I buy a vowel Vanna?

Texting is here to stay, particularly in communication with the latter Gen X and all the Gen Y generations. The funny thing is many love to be cryptic when SENDING a text but when RECEIVING one when you don't know what they are saying you feel like a dummy. How about you? Can you decipher many of these? Good luck.

Funny thing is, with unlimited text plans by many can't we "speak" a little more clearly? Nope. That's wouldn't be as cool.  ROTFL!!!

Uh, oh. 7-10: A bona fide text maniac - get a life.

But seriously, it's no different than acronyms we use in email. I made up one once. It's WYDH. And it caught on. It was just a joke.  Stands for Who's Your Daddy, Hambone.

Thanks for the info as I was wondering what some meant. The latest was a symbol sent to me <3 and it took me ages to realize that it is a heart.
