Texting for Seniors

We're all familiar with abbreviations and acronyms used by young people while texting. I see (*TMC) that older people are now getting in on the act with their own texting codes:

*ATD - At the Doctor'simage001
- Bring the Wheelchair
- Covered by Medicare
- See You at the Senior Center
- Driving While Incontinent
FWIW - Forgot Where I Was
- Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low
* GHA - Got Heartburn Again
* HGBM - Had Good Bowel Movement
- Laughing My Dentures Out
- Living on Lipitor



Grins :o)

Ha ha ha ha!
This is very funny, and very scary at the same time. I have an 80 year old retired minister that I work with. She has a BRILLIANT mind... having led a congregation of 5000 for 50 years... now, however, short term memory is kind of out the window. She is a force to recon with, even if she can't remember from one week to the next what that google-page is for.

She will go on "technology binges" every so often. One day she wanted me to go with her to get a new cell phone. We spent all day on it. She still can't figure out how to use it (one day she asked me what a cell phone was for). Another day she decided she wanted to get on Facebook. Be afraid... be very afraid....
Yes I thought it funny myself - and I'm heading for 81.
