1) When you see some one you haven't seen in a while so you text them so you dont feel bad and your not being rude
2) When you get someones number and you text them for like a week and then just stop, so your not the jerk that "didnt text me"
1) I saw Joe at the mall so i sent him a courtesy text so he wouldnt think i was ignoring him.
2) I need to send that chick from the fair a courtesy text so if we meet again she wont slap me.
don't give me that!
variations: don't give us that, don't give her/him that, you don't give me that, don't give me that bullshit
"you didn't text me back"
"oh, i was busy...."
When you would swear you felt or heard your phone vibrating and think you got a text, but there is actually nothing there.
Yay I got a text!!! Huh? No I didn't...but I heard it. Must've been a ghost text.
|4.||dumped by text|
painful. At least wait until you see them tomorrow or call them and talk. The giver, an easy way of ridding themselves of a person who still likes/loves them and not having to deal with the look that they'll get and/or tears and/or death threats and Hell exploding. They usually don't text back to what their ex replies, leaving the receiver very confused and wondering, 'what did I do??!' For the receiver, harsh. This person may/will feel depressed for a time, ranging from a millisecond to the rest of their life. This person is usually comforted by people she/he hardly knows. Almost everyone you see is on your side, even your now ex's family. The giver, receiver, neither, or both will give their now ex's number to friends. Then the giver will receive death threats and what the hell is wrong with you? texts, over and over again. The receiver will receive texts from their ex's freinds being immature Dr. Phil's. Others will text the receiver asking them out now that they know they are single or trying to make them feel creepily wanted. The receiver will also want to think that the text was sent as a joke from one of their friends, but know that it's real. However it works out, the two don't usually talk to eachother for a while.
After I was dumped by text, I as the receiver got many texts from his friends telling me that I was their friends, my now ex was wrong, and they were my friend or in love with me. Everyone at the dance heard about it and said that they were sorry for me in at least fifteen minutes of the breakup. His friends told me to say the word and they would make him regret every letter he texted into his phone to make up that text. Another of his friends, the one who had hooked us up, said that he was now not gonna drop his title as the "love doctor" because he didn't wanna hook up innocent, loving girls with assholes who couldn't even break up with them face-to-face.
|5.||Unrequested Predictive Text|
Replacement of your intended word by your cell phone's predictive text feature because you failed to space or were too quick (or thought you were) and you were really off a key and your cell didn't know what the hell you meant so it helped you out without your request. Strangely enough, sometimes you appreciate this feature because you can't always spell everything you'd like to say (but the cell can)!
"If you were turning to reach me, I was in the shower. - unrequested predictive text confused your slippery fingers and when you meant to say, "trying," it thought you meant turning. TOTALLY changes the meaning!
|6.||acoustic text message|
writing using text message language on a sheet a paper with a pen.
Johnny wrote Jen an acoustic text message in class yesterday. It said:
Jen: 10, f, LA. u?
Johnny: 11, m, Hollywood. now, lmao.
Jen: me 2.
The teacher took it up and didn't understand what it said.
The extremely annoying one or two character text consisting of either "K" or "Ok" that one receives at or near the end of a text conversation, usually preceded by a informative or directive text. Hated universally for its lack of substance and often wasting valuable limited texts for those of us who are too poor to afford unlimited.
"R u goin to the game 2mrw?"
"Yea everyone else is going"
"Will you go out with me?"
"No I think you are unattractive and stupid."
Teenager 1: Dude why didn't you text me back?
Teenager 2: You send me the K text you dumbass.
