    They look like weird boxes to me. E418, E105, etc.

    Just for the record, when I use dh it means dear, or darling, even delightful. Never dumb. Ever.:love:

    Dear? Darling? Delightful? It's just too much! I'm trying to think of other adjectives to use, but I'm at a loss. But I promise I like him. Really! :p

    The one that drives me nuts is when people type wala to mean "Voila!" I think it makes the person look like an idiot.

    Yeah, mine is "just right" for me as well. It's just not everyone's personality to refer to their spouse as darling or delightful. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

    The only thing I really hate is the use of "ur." I understand that it was mean to be read as "you are," but many people use it incorrectly. I think people have stopped reading it as "you are," and have begun reading it as you're. This works in some cases, but not all...

    For example, I see people saying things like "Don't forget ur keys!" :banghead:

    Nor is it everyone's personality to call a spouse dumb. Feel free to use your own adjectives for yours...:D

    Hubby and I were walking downtown yesterday and we came across this cafe shop with a sign out front that said, "your invited" with a list of yummy food items on the bottom. That's another huge pet peeve of mine. Please, please use your and you're correctly (and I also hate ur), especially if you're a business. Blech. Lazy people.

    For referring to my husband, I just don't use "dear" or "delightful," and of course I don't use "dumb." It was just a joke.
    My husband uses endearing words all the time. I use his name.

    My understanding was that u r = you are, and ur = your. That's how I've seen it used and it made sense to me. I use these in texting and FB to make things quicker.

    Agreed, Peachy!

    I tell my students that they "appear less intelligent than they are" when they aren't able to use these words correctly.

    (after the manner of Eeyore, but with corner of mouth twitching just barely visibly)*

    ama, it is my sad duty to point out that you've only encouraged me, probably to the sorrow of the rest of the community.

    *And let's see someone come up with a smiley for that.

    Interesting...I wonder if I'm in the minority for thinking the way that I did!

    Either way, ur = your does not make sense to me! It's not too much work to type the other 2 letters...

    I've also always read "ur" as "your" or "you're". In fact, I pronounce all three of those words the same, sort of like "yer". :)

    The ONLY abbreviation I use regularly is SAHM for "Stay at Home Mom." If I've ever referred to Peter or the kids as "D-- anything" it was probably a matter of being so tired that I should not have been on the computer in the first place.

    Beyond that, I use as close to standard written English as my typing abilities will allow.

    "Aack," "drat," "Blankety-blank-blank," etc, are not childish shortcuts or lazy trendy abbreviations. While hardly professional, they are a legitimate part of speech: interjections.

    You know, those things we say when a brick falls on our bare foot? Those. Interjections.

    But LOL, U, UR. . . . those are just very childish dot-your-i-with-a-heart-or-daisy throwbacks. Not acceptable at the professional level.

    This reminded me of a 6th grade World Geography teacher I had. Any time he would want to cuss (especially when he broke the chalk) he'd say this instead. The whole class would laugh! Of course that's the only way I remember him... not sure that's how he'd want to be remembered.
