I don’t speak the same language as my grandkids. They were born and brought up in Brum but they have developed a new language all of their own and their mates of course. I refer to the use of mobile phones and in particular the way that they text me. Hw R U is OK ,got it, no probs there but the text are now so complex I take longer to try to work out what they are saying than the message itself. This method if writing is now spreading to emails so I recognise I better learn it fast. I was just wondering if anyone had written a book on what these abbreviations were and what they meant. It might be a good project for me, should keep me quiet for a couple of years.
I’m no dummy when it comes to the use of new technology and in fact taught them their early skills in the use of computers. Now when I ask for help I get the “oh must I look” a quick run over the keyboard,if I’m lucky, and if I should dare to ask to show me again I get the impression I am some kind of sub being who should no better than to ask. Such is progress.
