How many find this irritating?

When people use things like 2 instead of just typing two letters? It makes it harder to read and I understand on REALLY SUPER long things using alot of the other things like LOL. But I think we are getting too dependant on these "short-cuts" and are going to lose what gramar we have left in us because we do not practice it. I am not perfect, I am not saying that any one is doing wrong. I am just saying that it irrates me to see some one use a number instead of typing two little letters.

  • i don't mind if someone is saying "i have 2 kids" but if they're putting "i have 2 go 2 the store" it bugs me. (i had a hard time even trying to type that haha!) Mostly i see it with teens and people in their early 20s though. i do know someone who types like that all the time... and shortens almost all their words. it's not even worth it to me to read it because it takes forever to figure out what they're trying to say.

  • but that is a number used to represent a real number, not a number used to represent a word.

  • Shortcuts don't bother me as much as bad grammar and bad spelling. Sorry, just reading your post irritated me,lol.

  • Shoirtcuts are okay, as long as it isn't full on chat speak. it gets too hard to understand! Bad grammar and spelling also drives me BONKERS! I can't understand what the person is trying to communicate!

  • I'm 25 and I will use the occasional LOL, DH, DD, DS, and such, but saying stuff like I need 2 do this n that bugs me to no end because it is so hard to read. Maybe it's just because I wasn't lucky enough to get a cell phone until my 22nd birthday! and then I couldn't send alot of texts because of the extra cost.

  • I'm laughing my ass off at some of these replies! You all are complaining about the number 2 being used to replace the word two, and most of you have horriable spelling and grammar errors all over your replies!
    You're = You are
    alot = a lot.... TWO words
    i = I "i" is not a word its a letter......
