What is the correct etiquette to use while texting your significant other or your booty call? Is it ok to abbreviate? What about spelling errors? See what advice Julia, Meghan and Mary have to give and let the texting begin!
Meghan: Welcome to TMI Weekly, your source for life, tech and style.
Julia: And today we have our iPhone tel and it’s not coincidence.
Mary: First note that Julia finally gave in and bought an iPhone.
Julia: We’ll give out.
Mary: No, please that I will not be so weak in giving and get a Mac. I will be a PC lover always.
Julia: So weak as Julia. You’ll never be as weak as me. Today, we’re talking about dating text again.
Meghan: Say it three times.
Julia: This is specifically text that you sent to people who you like to go out with or people who you’d like to go home with—I just got a text just now from a guy that I’m going out with tonight, who’s picking me up.
Meghan: Oh, I’m texting right now.
Julia: No you’re not to text—the whole point is I actually did just—Number one, don’t use abbreviations. I cannot stand it when a guy does u instead of you, it’s too extra rotten here. Think your thumbs are going to make it?
Meghan: I always feel like they don’t really care. It’s like basically they’re being like very like stand of as if they just say the u instead of you because there’s more effort.
Mary: You know what? Honestly I just type u because it’s quicker and it’s easier.
Julia: There’s a higher bar on this text—if you’re texting for fun I mean personally, I’m really against the abbreviations but text whatever you want because you’re not trying to sit with them. For people who you’d like to have a relationship with, the bar goes higher, straight spell with an 8, no.
Meghan: There’s a whole new language I think formed with texting but—
Julia: No, but not in a good way. Just use English.
Mary: Hey listen! If your parents are doing it now that must mean it’s acceptable. I mean my parents who are southern conservatives are texting using shorthand. Julia, I’m sorry but you’re going to have to throw your headband out of the window and join the band.
Julia: This is the other hot peeve of mine, don’t make typos. Come on.
Meghan: If somebody has misspelled some word or the use it like programmer and they’re texting like text and like—
Mary: Can we please stop using the spelling. I’m a classy person who knows how to spell, okay.
Meghan: No, it’s not about your spelling. I’m saying about the guy that I’m dating. I’ve ruined relationships with texting.
Mary: I guess you have and then you get on the phone and cry.
Julia: Why? Because you texted him eight times in a row.
Meghan: Like where are you, I thought we were going out, that I started getting sarcastic and nasty. I mean a little passive aggressive. I mean obviously some of these times I was doing it when I was a little wasted.
Julia: I really think that phone should come with a breathalyzer. Like if you hit a certain number you can no longer—your texting function is frozen. I call it trunk texting—
Mary: Like blank dragging—
Julia: Exactly! One of our reader who said a guy who she had been seeing send her this text “Come over bt only if I can bang u from behind!”
Mary: Okay, first of all the appropriate response to that is thank you because you no longer have to waste any time on this guy. Second of all some people like it rough, maybe she does too.
Julia: This other reader got a text from her, now ex-boyfriend, who said “I'm breakin up wit chu!”
Mary: Her fault for dating him in the first place.
Julia: That’s what she thought. She’s like, I almost and not even have said about the break up because he’s just so—
Mary: That’s insane and then you say thank you.
Julia: This is my favorite type of all times. She was sitting in a bar and she saw the guy that she had been seeing go home with another girl. She was drunk and she texted him this “I hope you get the herp and dife. The emd.” It was supposed to say the end but that’s spelled emd.
Meghan: So readers send us a cool site called TextFromTheEx.com and basically it takes all of your text messages and it puts it embroidered like grandmother.
Julia: They’re the cutest things, like embroidered pillows. That's a cool thing.
