Newbie to Txt

I texted my GRANDson recently just to amaze him with my technology skills! It's always fun to pretend you know what's happening, even if you don't. Hubby and I study the Best Buy ads every week and read the technology page in Saturday's paper...that's about the extent of our learning curve! But what I don't know, I make up for with my "try it out, give it a whirl, I can figure this out" attitude! A friend on Facebook posted a fun quiz last week that tested your knowledge of texting. Go To Quiz will score you on how much you know (or don't know)! After taking the test you may want to go onto Webopedia for a complete list of abbreviations that will get you up to speed. Btw... I scored 71%, a very good score that means I probably spend a lot more time texting and chatting than other things.

Not true in my case...just goes to prove you can teach an "Old Dog" new tricks!

*If you want a "Cheat Sheet," you can go to Lingo2Word and enter a text message. It will automatically decifer the message and tell you what it says in plain old English!


  1. I actually had to call AT&T yesterday to get a different texting plan. Lately several of my customers have been more into texting than calling, so I was going over my 200 messages a month. Plus my DIL likes to send pictures of Lucy via text, which I certainly don't want to discourage!

  2. The first time I saw lol I thought it meant... Lot's of love. My daughter set me straight.

  3. LOL..LOL..LOL me to, all of the above! I still hate texting but I'm getting better at it! You need to come say hi girl! ;D

  4. I don't have a clue how to text message. I think it's just easier to pick up a phone or e-mail. I still don't know what all the buttons on my phone are for....


  5. You're a better woman than I, me, whatever.
