Overused Short-Forms

It really irks me to read sentences that have been drastically short-formed until there are no vowels left in the sentence. Doesn't matter whether in emails, SMSes, blogs, whatever....especially trying to read my student's gives me a real headache trying to understand the contents..

For example:

"Gd mng..Pn x? sy nk jmp pn jp kt blk x?"
(Good morning..Puan kat mana..busy x? saya nak jumpa puan kejap lagi..ada kat bilik tak?)

or my younger bro's sms
" nk psn mcd VM2..n tlg bl tp maxis 10,tq"
(Sis..aku nak pesan McD Value Meal Set 2...and tolong beli topup maxis Rm10, terima kasih)

Most of the time I won't bother reading the whole thing because the typer didn't bother to type the whole thing. One or two short-formed words in a sentence is okay. Or the common ones like "yg" (yang), "kpd" (kepada), "dgn" (dengan), etc. Tapi kalau sampai almost semua sekali nak short form, baik tak payah type langsung. Rimas nak baca!

Kalau "Assalamualaikum" panjang sangat, type Salam sudah...
Ni jadi Aslm la, aslmkm la, askum la. Entah apa-apa. Baik type "Hi" jer.
