2009/335: Which Language?
If you guessed English, you’re correct! HOW she gets straight A’s in spelling is beyond me 😉
For those of you who thought it was Chinese (or any other language), it’s supposed to say There are two buses, the second one was late.
(She was going on a field trip to Six Flags and there was only one bus there when I dropped her off and we were wondering if only very few students were going)
It could be danish:
“Der er 2 busser. Den 2. var forsinket.”
I like this type of riddle where you just have to read whai it says instead of expecting a ‘correct’ way of spelling. However, I’d expect ‘De’ instead of ‘Du’.

I knew exactly what it said, but then again, I am a mom of a texting teen. It is like its own language!

I think the scariest part is these teens are the future. (not Melissa, of course, with straight A’s, she clearly knows the correct spelling) It’s so scary to think the majority of our future generation with be anti-social and illiterate. So much is being lost with texting. I understand it’s value, I just hate that it replaces personal interaction and correct spelling.
Ok, sorry, stepping off my soap box now……….gosh, I feel old, lol!

OMG! My wife and I use “antique” cell phones. We just decided to get matching iPhones for Christmas. Data, voice, texting… we’ve got things to learn! Like a whole new language. OMG is all I know in that language!

Hey! It’s not MY fault I don’t have a phone with a keyboard!!!! I didn’t pick my phone!!!! Someone else picked a cheap (pricewise) Motorola TracFone!!!! If I had picked, I would’ve picked one more like mom’s!!!!
It takes forever to spell some words correctly on my phone, so I text like that.

IT’S ALL MY PHONE’S FAULT!!!! I BLAME MY PHONE FOR NOT HAVING A KEYBOARD!!!!

Mellie, are you calling Santa cheap?? Better be careful, because that’s going to get you on the naughty list for sure! 😉
Ed, I had an “antique”, too, until last July. It was capable of texting, but it wasn’t included in the plan we chose. I use correct spelling when I text, btw.

I’m not calling Santa cheap! I’m calling the phone stupid for not having a keyboard and more awsome games and stuff for the same price!

Mel, you need to work on convincing your Mum that she needs a new phone. And Sarah needs a new phone.
Then you can kind of pass them down the line. Your Mum gets a new phone, you get hers (I presume with the keyboard) and Sarah can have yours. (She’s probably little enough to just be grateful for your hand me downs)
You can only try. 😉

LOL, she definitely needs a phone with a keyboard. But them you have to be afraid to make texting TOO easy, the bill may sky rocket.

Haha, not going to work, Blue! I just got this phone a few months ago.
Amy, she has a Tracphone, which is pre-paid. We get her a new 60-min. card every two months (which is really 120 min. because her phone comes with double minutes). Texting actually costs her less than calling someone. Maybe some day we will upgrade her phone to one with a keyboard, but we’ll keep her on the pre-paid plan.

unlimited texting is the wtg..cheaper than going over your mins. or texts. I think we pay $10 a month for that for A’s phone. I have 400 texts a month and never come close to going over. I also use correct spelling 99% of the time
