Generational Differences?

This week at work the company held a seminar regarding generational differences in the work place. Mostly it was about how old people can relate to us crazy kids!

At the end of the session they handed out this handy dandy little card to everyone with texting lingo.


Apparently I belong to the incorrect generation... I knew maybe like 5 of these. I know I can be a little grandmomish at times, but I really didn't think I belonged in the baby boomer category....

Loves!

I guess I belong to the wrong generation too! I knew about 7!

Seriously, ^5 means high five? I've never once even thought of texting that! Haha!

That is crazy! Where have I been??

Hmm...Okay, I'm going to test this out. Tonight, I will text at least 5 of those codes to my 16 year old brother and see if he knows what I mean.

I feel SO out of the loop!

ummm yah i know like 5 of those too. No one uses those. Maybe an old person wrote this and made up those abbreviations. Probably so. I mean really ... CMU ... crack me up. Uh, no ... we don't use that mam!

I hate texting lingo--I never know. My husband's friend from basic training has a 12 year old sister who will always text me. I don't know what she's talking about half the time and sometimes I'll even try to google-ha!
