  • It's not the texting that bothers me as much as the ones on Cafemom. Like we can't take the extra 2 seconds to type out "husband" (for example) instead of abbreviating EVERYTHING.

  • I can tolerate ROFL and some LOLs, as long as they're not in each sentence, but I can type "husband" and "daughter," and I have real issues with people putting "BM" in sentences about birth mothers.
