I can't see the sense in texting unless you are hiding  somewhere, like in class or Church which is a no no in the first place. Could be you just don't want everyone around you hearing your conversation and sometimes and some places that would be polite. I don't know what most of these things mean and don't want to know. Two I do know and that is LOL laugh out loud and ROFL. rolling on floor laughing.  I only know because I googled them.   At least I think that is what they mean. I'm just wondering if some of my E-mail contacts even know what it means even though they use it after almost every sentence.    Some of the places they use LOL is ridiculous, bordering on "Stupid".   
I got an E-mail one day that went like this:
Good Morning, just wanted to check in LOL.  (Now why is checking in with me worthy of laughing out loud)?   It goes on by saying, Hope your day is going better than mine, ROFL.   (Now hoping my day is better than yours is not usually a laughing matter is it?). The thing goes on and on,  I had to go to the dentist yesterday to get a wisdom tooth cut out. LOL. (Come on now)  The wind was blowing so hard it was not easy to keep my little car on the road. LOL  I did finally get to the dentist office. The waiting area was packed. I sat in the only seat in the room which was between two ladies with small kids. LOL I was in pain and the screams from the kids was excruciating to my pounding head. LOL. (What??)One of the kids asked me why I had my hand on my cheek and why my face was so red. I told her I was in a lot of pain. Of course her reply was "Why"?  ROFL.(Good Grief).   I thought ignoring would be my best bet but ignoring doesn't always work. I didn't want to hurt the little girls feelings. Normally I would have loved to talk to this beautiful little girl just not today.   I looked at the Mom pleading with my eyes for help but she just turned her head.  ROFL (If you are rolling on the floor laughing I would turn my head also.)
By this time I was thinking about deleting this E-mail because I was getting a headache from the  stupidness.  Why in the heck would anyone  take the extra time to add such balderdash at the end of almost every word?  I'm thinking  they couldn't understand what they are typing.  I think they just want to be in the *in crowd* or some such thing.  Heck I thought everyone laughed out loud when they laughed. I sure don't laugh silently very often and I sure as shootin' don't LOL after I've said something like I have an aching tooth.  As far as Rolling On The Floor Laughing, honey there ain't no way you would see me doing that at the dentist office or anywhere else and if you do see me being that stupid then you have my permission to LOL& ROFL.    If you ain't laughing out loud or rolling on the floor laughing then don't lie to me and say you are.  If I am talking to you in an intelligent conversation then I won't be rolling on the floor laughing.  Where the heck is all that stuff coming from?
Here in the South we don't waste time on words. We ain't got time to add all those ing's to our words.  Now just think how much time we save by saying thinkin' stead of running it out sayin'   I'm thinking of going bowling. Come on say it out loud both ways. Sure we were taught with the ing's same as everybody else so don't start thinking we Southerners are stupid just because we shorten our words. Heck we talk with a slow drawl anyway so adding anything to our words would be painful.
Oh well this is just one of my pet peeves and only my opinion. We are all entitled to that!  If you are one of those who adds all these things to your E-mails then you are probably more intelligent than me. Or maybe you're not in any hurry.

 Romans 2:3-4 Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?
