Latest Texting Translation Older (like me) Real Estate Professionals

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Online Marketing Advertising Consultant

The latest texting translation shared with me recently by an un-named relative helped him adapt to the technology and temperament of his new smart(er than him) phone:

old pic of me at work

OLD PEOPLE TEXTING CODE:                  ATD= At The Doctor's   BFF=  Best Friend Fell    

BTW=  Bring The Wheelchair                  BYOT=     Bring Your Own Teeth

FWIW=     Forgot Where I Was               GGPBL=   Gotta Go Pacemaker Battery Low

GHA=     Got Heartburn Again                 IMHAO=   Is My Hearing Aid On

LMDO=   Laughing My Dentures Out        OMMR=    On My Massage Recliner

OMSG=   Oh My!  Sorry Gas!         ROFL ACGU= Rolling On Floor Laughing  And Can't Get Up

TTYL=    Talk To You Louder

 

Here's an example of intense focus on Texting Translation for older Real Estate Professionals (probably seen it, I just remembered it six months later) -

Hello James:

 

In my market of Sun City Texas (a 55+ community) this new guide will be vital for all future texting messages.  Now, if one of my clients ever sends me a text IKWTATA - I'll know what they are talking about.

yes, that could have been my daughter, she is always texting. I am DRIVING my car, NOT wearing reading glasses and she sends me a TEXT.....what happened to CALLING? I can do that and drive! Guess that is the first sign of getting old, you can't read the damn text message while driving! And the sun blinding you sure doesn't help!

Thanks for the laugh! That did good!!!!

Glad to get a smile from my people!  Gawd, Barbara-Jo, we graduated soooo long ago!

Reading glasses?  I wish!  I'm using TRI-FOCALS!  Oddly enough, my daughters never answered my voicemails, but when I started texting they respond IMMEDIATELY!  Go figure.

James - I gave up the trifocals and had lasik...............twice on each eye! Now I have the damned reading glasses again...............nothing is forever! In 3 years I can get the government to pay for new lenses when I have cataract surgery! Then I will be glasses free again! Yahoo!

Amazing what makes us smile as we age....................

Thought about the lasik, then saw the CNN report on how the two principals of Lasik here in Bellevue Washington were in court - not pretty!  No worries, I don't see well enough to know if they're pretty or not without my glasses.

Yeah, now your talking - get the high-tech cat surgery and it's done.

Yes indeed, what makes us smile!  "Things that make ya go "hmmm..."
