I recall when I chatted with my son in messenger and asked him about something, he replied with letters IDK. I responded with annoyance by asking what do those letters mean?
He replied with “I don’t know”, and I was like shouting at him for answering me with those words. You can’t imagine the lecture I have given to him.
Then he explained IDK means “I don’t know.” And there it goes, I just laughed.
When this text shortcuts for chat messengers & SMS texting started, I was not really into it. Honestly, I hate to read any messages using this kind of shortcuts, I really criticize and demand to send me messages with proper text.
Some would say I have to follow what is trending and not to be old fashioned about it, but simply I disagreed. Unless you have frailties in writing and the shortcut is needed, then I would really understand.
Anyhow, sorry for those who are using shortcuts. If you are offended just LMK 🙂
