I think it's funny how horrible we spell. Do you ever wonder if our kids in 15 years will be the dumbest set of civilians due to the texting and chat lingo? I have a friend who is a teacher and she said that there are papers being turned in with , OMG, IDK, LOL, and IMO!

Yes, Middle school and high school! My 4th grader wants a cell and i am thinking of getting him one, however i am thinking it should wait until he gets better in spelling! Don't want to ruin all that hard work!

I know people who not only write OMG, LOL, etc they actually say them.  It's ridiculous.

It is sad that grown people can't spell worth a damn.  I remember when I was in the pregnancy group soooooo many women would spell pregnant pregnate or pregnut.  It was terrifying.

 Hey, at least the kids are trying. I don't care about the spelling, as long as the kid tries to get the job done. 

   I know a few people that speak more lazily than any abbrv. in writing I've seen. LOL!
