New Pet Peve?

So some of my friends have gone a little abreviation crazy. This is how a recent conversation with one of my friends and my mother went.

Friend: OMG that it totes redic!
My mom: Ummm could you please translate?
Friend: Oh my gosh that is totally rediculous-it's pretty obvi (obvious)!
Mom: Right...
Friend: Abrevi's are so in right now! Didn't yall know?

Does anyone else agree with me that this new "in" phase is a little obnoxious?


  1. I couldn't agree more!!!!!!! Geeezzzz, it drives me crazy!

  2. I agree! Some of my friends do that too and it drives me crazy!

  3. I agree! Friends do this too!

  4. Oh, my goodness! That is absolutely insane. Too many abbreviations.

  5. That would drive me crazy. Hopefully my friends don't pick up on that trend.

  6. That gets so annoying! Some abbreviations are necessary, but translation should not be necessary for comprehension! haha

  7. hahaha thats a funny conversation! they have gotten a little out of hand.. my boyfriend told me he's even heard people saying "she's so jelly" instead of she's so JEALOUS lol its ridiculous!

  8. Oh my gosh...abbreviations drive me crazy!! Sometimes I can't even understand a text message from people because it is SO abbreviated!

  9. I don't think I could take talking like that or listening to someone talk like that!

  10. ugh, I hate it when my friends talk like that. I can't believe how popular it's gotten, and it gets annoying really fast. Especially when I don't understand what the abbreviations for for sometimes, and it drives me nuts. hahahaha.

    I just stumbled upon your blog and it's really cute! You seem really genuine, so i followed.
