A shorter more convenient form of the word: totally. This word is most commonly used by teenage girls.

The most obvious advantage of using this word is the time saved. Data collected at a prestigious university found that every syllable spoken takes approximately 0.14 seconds.

The same prestigious university also found that the average valley girl says the word totally around 190 times a day.

If you do the math, the average time saved by using the word totes as opposed to totally would save 26.6 seconds a day! Over the course of a year that adds up to 2.7 hours!!
Girl #1: I totes want to go to the shoe store because I totes need to purchase new heels.

Girl #2: Totes! I totes need a new pair too so I'll totes go with you.

Girl #3: OH EM GEE! you guys saved 0.7 seconds by saying totes instead of totally!!

A man would do nothing if he waited until he could do it so well that no one could find fault. ~John Henry Newman.

Striving for excellence motivates you; striving for perfection is demoralizing. ~Harriet Braiker

Have no fear of (perfection) - you'll never reach it. ~Salvador Dali
