So dedicated is she to the art of the text message that Tirosh apparently unwittingly uses abbreviations such as BTW (by the way), TTYL (talk to you later) and LOL (laughing out loud) in her normal speech.


There's a commercial with a little girl talking to her mother like that. If anyone spoke that way in real life, they need to be slapped immediately and repeatedly.

Sick of those who are hypocrites.

Yes doctor, there will be a war.

She is going to have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome by the time she is 14.

I do that all the time at work. We have charges filed by Complainants and responses to those charges filed by Respondents. I would end up typing Complainant and Respondent about 100 times a day each, so I made autocorrect shortcuts for each of them. Now when I talk to my coworkers about various cases, I say "CP" and "RP" all the time.

The radio version is even funnier.

"G-R-R-R-R-R-R-R..."
"Don't GRRR at me young lady!"

Hysterical! :-b

Anyway, weird story. Who knew? :-?

Asked if she would describe herself as a geek, Pozgar rolled her eyes and said no. Her brother, who had separately won a television, seemed to disagree.


Who can't relate to this sentence? It comes right out of my childhood.

I don't understand the rules behind the competition. Since when did punctuation count in text messaging? They should give the contestants a random phrase and let them send it however they want. Then let a 60 year old lady try and figure out what they were sending. Judge them on a combination of speed and style.
