My friend just recieved this txt msg…see if you can translate it.
Some context to help you decipher: The sender is 16, two kids, lives in South Auckland, owes money, is behind on payments.
One of the 99% no doubt.
My best guess…
Ok, that’s better than nothing, I’m home now if they can come and get the car should I give my car money to them when they come?
Dat’s purty gd , Al
I think you mean “datz purty gd ow.”
And you wonder why we need National Standards!
The writer should be back at school in year 2 or 3

al least he can afford an iphone
Or stole it.
That I can read that frightens me.
Two kids already, at 16? I’ll bet this person has six kids by the time they’re 20. Six kids that WE will be paying for.
Clearly in need of an orchiectomy !
And to think, this could have been a valid response in an English exam that if the examiner could understand it would get marks if the concept was OK.
Some perspective – youngsters in affluent areas also txt using that truncated language and mangled expressions. Its in some cases – the same thinking behind acronyms such as WTF IMHO FFS and other such delights.
16 with two kids is not good. Lucrezia Borgia was married and spudded by the tender age of 14 – we havent advanced much since the rennaissance and the “earth is flat and God is the only truth” ages or so it would appear.
What causes kids to do these things. What causes people in this particular area to do these things? What causes it - and what is the answer.
Who was unwise enough to loan a 16 year old with 2 kids money? And who do they vote for (both the lender and the borrower)?
Look at the cultural demographic and despair.
Shut up, diabolos. My kids are of an age with him, one’s younger actually, and apart from the occasional dropped apostrophe and truncated expression (dw = don’t worry, for instance) when they text me they speak in intelligible English, not garbled retard speak.
I kind of understand the point of “txt” language as a method to shorten words/phases so they take up less space but why use terms like kar or ohkae when their correct spellings are the same/shorter?
I’m getting old.
@Nobody – they do it because they cannot actually spell.
…and national standards are unnecessary because?
@Guest & @ Gazzaw It was received by an iPhone, doesnt mean it was sent by one
diabolos. “What causes kids to do these things”
Just a guess here but my pick is that teaching 12year olds about sexual positions and its “ok to play with her clitorus as long as she consents” and “how to perform anal sex” in public school classes probably has something to do with it…
If they had been paying attention for the “how to perform anal sex” part of the lesson, they wouldn’t have 2 kids!!!
hahaha, good call.
The worst I’ve seen was from a work colleagues daughter…
