Cingular Texting Commercial

OMG! WTF? LOL?

Like a big dork, I'm one of the few people who spells everything out in text messages. (Okay, I may use the occasional abbreviation.) But dammit, I'm afraid if I give up on complete words, I'm gonna sound like this kid. It's a slippery slope. . .

I saw the commercial and I laughed when I have seen it first time (especially with the boy in another version of the commercial). Personally, I have never heard someone talk like the girl. xD I heard a few times the word 'lol' being said as an actual word (not like el-oh-el), but still. I don't think people will go that far as the girl in the commercial. :/And 50 text messages made me giggle some more.

I have to admit I thought this commercial was pretty funny, although it annoyed me when Whitney on the Hills was talking in "texttalk" on the show. I guess my feelings on it are somewhere in the middle. :)

Thank you, Phil! I am a very proper person, as I'm sure everyone can tell by my comments. My messages have to be spelled correctly, my grammar has to be well formed, and I have to use punctuation. When I first saw this commercial, I thought it was one of the most ridiculous commercials I had ever seen. I hate the idea that this is what we are truly falling into as a society. What's really sad is that at some point it won't be frowned upon if you speak using "text talk" in places, like being interviewed for a job. At least for right now, employers still look for employees that know how to speak properly. Sorry for the rant, everyone.

I've been complaining about this since the days when people would go on internet chatrooms (or does that still happen?)! I still prefer to text using real, spelled out words and will even go through the trouble of using proper capitalization and punctuation (well, not so much proper punctuation but I try) when I text.

I absolutely love this commercial!! But I agree, text speak is rampant and killing the English language.

Seriously, when I see this little girl with her own cell phone and so entrenched in texting wordspeak, I want to go all "OMGWTF" too!Sadly, as an avid texter myself, I think the girl's lines are slightly amusing. LOL?

Giggles - this is already an epidemic in schools. If you only knew the number of assignments that I receive where words are "text talk". Tho instead of though. U instead of you. It's absolutely ridiculous. Also, my kids "speak" this. They say OMG or LOL all the time. I'm actually guilty of saying OMG too.However - I think IDK my BFF Jill is hilarious.
