Am I a mean aunt?

My neice (11) is on Myspace (which I have never been happy about). My other neice is on there also and they type really dumb to me. I can only remember a couple of words like mii for my, mizz for miss, bezztiis for best. So my 11 yr. old niece types me a messege: "can u tel mii dad I 4got my iiiipod and tel BrYaN i criied 4 hm", I answered " I'll tell dad when you spell correctly". She answers back, watev, tel mii dad kaaaay?? I answered the same. She then answers "mAn! its juzt myspace, who carezzz! Jeeeesh!, I ignored her messege and today I got another sent to me. "Gigi, pleeeeeeeaaaasssseee answer me. Please ask my dad to send my iPod and please tell Bryan I miss him. Now THAT messege I replied to. lol Do you think she thinks I am mean?

  • No...I would have answered the same way...maybe I'm old but I am just not into all those websites...My Space, Facebook, Twitter...and all that funky language...

  • Kids think that is cool when they type like that. Thankfully, my son does not do that. But since she finally got your point, I would say she wont do that again to you

  • she probably thinks you're mean, but i'd do the same thing LOL. i get so annoyed when people purposely mispell words. i don't mind abreviations like "lol" and "brb" and things of that sort, but i do the same thing to people when they strt talkn lyk thys. i tell them that unless they can speak english i do not wish to talk to them :P

  • I am on Facebook with my older family and I never see them type like that. I could understand certain things like "Hey ppl"! Other then that, not my cup of tea. I hope she doesn't go telling her mom, "Aunt Gigi is rude or mean" to me, she was being a brat with the "mAn and jeeeesh" in my opinion. Still I would hate to have her think that.

  • She might think you are mean, but I'd bet she thinks you are an old fuddy duddy, totally uncool.
