me: that's funny... I manage to do it. I don't find it difficult at all.

shorthand: am :P
That doesn't even make any sense. Of course I'm not used to it. Because I like appearing literate in my interactions with other people.
shorthand: so ... wat you do in general
me: I'm sorry... I'm afraid we're going to hit an enormous language barrier. perhaps we should end it here.
shorthand: fine lady its all your wish
