Hey you! Yes you wu wrtÂ likÂ dis… You can just skip straight to point number 1. We see it all the time: People who write with a shorthand-mobile-only type of language that is difficult to read but even worse to understand. This is a short helpful post to help you see what is actually happening while you are making an attempt to communicate. DntÂ wrry.. I wllÂ also hlpÂ u 2 fix dis prblm.Â So here it is:
The Top 10 Reasons y ppl shldntÂ wrtÂ lik dis:
10.Â You are seriously assisting your brain to get dumber. (im nt gngÂ 2 expln y)
9.Â Â Â This is the reason you cannot get a job. (Ppl cntÂ reed yr CV, dntÂ aply)
8.Â Â Â If you slipped through the cracks, this is the reason you will not get a promotion.
7.Â Â Â No one can understand you. (BcusÂ dey cnntÂ rd whtÂ u wrtin)

But I’m not here to chew you out, so here is what you can DO to fix this habit:
a) Stop it!
b) Write using all the keys on your phone, keypad or keyboard – yes, even the vowels.
c) Unless you are doing math, avoid using the numbers (Especially 2, 4 and 8)
d) Well done!
