    10:30:11 A: Remember this red dress of mine?
    10:30:15 A: Oh, and this reminds me... how was this film you watched yesterday?
    10:30:16 B: Yeah, I remember... What about it?
    10:30:18 A: I lost it!
    10:30:19 B: Oh, it was boring. Really?! Lost it? How come?
    10:30:29 A: Boring? And it supposed to be the best film of the year...
    10:30:37 B: Good point. It supposed to be...
    10:30:39 A: I don't know how it happened but it's gone..


    You know what I mean?
    I do, and it makes me sick just thinking about it. Almost as aggravating as reading text language in written essays...
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.

    Think about how much your parents tried to keep you from using slang when you were a kid? It's because they knew there would come a time when people wouldn't know when and where it was appropriate to say it and not say it.

    I once slipped up and said, "hater" in an interview. I apologized immediately, but it was okay. They liked my enthusiasm for the subject matter.

    First of all, hater is actually a real word. It's probably due to hip-hop and internet culture that it is seen as slang by some. 2nd, txt spk isnt th sme as slang. U c, usin txt spk im smply shortening lng wrds tht othawise wud b tuff 2 undastnd.

    Yes, "hater" is definitely a real word, but when you blurt out, "I'm not a hater!" in the middle of an interview, it just doesn't feel right. We both got a good chuckle out of it.

    That's way I don't envy English teachers or teachers in general for that fact. Slang, I think we're all guilty of using it one way another, but using txt spk in real life is so goddamn annoying to me. Texting, twitter, Facebook and the like they only give you so many characters to type, but writing a report and even just talking. My 17 year old cousin is very guilty of this especially using OMG or LOL when talking people, not going to mention when I'm helping her with her school reports.
    We are all insane, we just act normal for the sake of others.

    I sometimes catch myself (and a few of my friends as well) on using LOL to express amusement And mind that my language is Polish
    But it's like I can't imagine writing txt message or a post without emoticons. How did I use to write letters?!

    RE: Are you the same person in real life?

    The facts in this conversation prove how corrupt most people have become with technology and how informal speech creeps into and plagues formal etiquette. And it also pisses me off, for lack of a better phrase.

    Now, I have a question: is using text language in written and spoken English as bad as referencing Internet memes in formal situations?

    Formal situations as in a dinner party were you have to wear a tie and/or dress or giving a report at work? If you were watching the SOPA House Judiciary Committee hearing one of the Reps. did sing "the internet is for porn" meme during the hearing and Rep. Lamar Smith halted the hearing until the day after. So, in a way it can be, but with very few reasons why to though.
