    @Bobby Cole: His contention was that if a person didn’t understand what he wrote or said, they didn’t need to be reading or hearing it and even went so far as to say that the person who could not understand him didn’t even need to be in the same room as he.

    “If you can't explain it to a six year old, you don't understand it yourself.”
    Albert Einstein

    I'm keeping in mind, as I always do, that this is one person relaying another person's words and views, and even slightly varying their words can change their meaning and intent.

    I text with my kids and grandkids. I have found it really DOES save time to use the abbreviated words. If the person you are texting with knows what you are saying, it doesn't matter if it's a new sort of language. (I did know what you posted.....)

    FYI, the abbreviation "ngl" doesn't mean angel, it means "not gonna lie"

    I didn't like or use abbreviations at first. I thought they looked stupid. However, once you text on a regular basis, it really does make things more efficient.

    Thanks for the correction. I should have looked at the list before using logic to complete the sentence.
