do you talk like you type?

Some people say "LOL" and "O.M.G." in person which was weird at first but am starting to get used to such - not as bad as showering your conversations with "shizzle" and "shizz" and "shix" and whatnot. I don't talk like I type. In cases where a LOL is expected, I laugh. In cases where OMG is expected, I revert back to Filipino because it expresses my emotion better. What about you?

OMG LOL I have never heard that in person. If I was to type like i speak there would be alot more typos and swear words. If i was talking to someone and they said OMG or LOL I would say "quick look over there" and then move away to a safe place.

I actually heard a guy say that it was cute when he heard a girl talk in "LOL" and "OMG" speech - then after an hour, the guy was like "oowwwkeeeey"...

No, my friends would laugh at me when i talk the way i type. lol! As much as possible, i try not to speak english because i find myself too cheesy when i speak lol! Although i can pull it through whenenever needed. I also don't use the words i'm using here. I mean not the complicated ones. I'm using the safe common words just to be safe.

When I'm typing away on My Lot I don't use the shortcuts as it were. The way that I write is exactly the way I talk. There's nothing wrong with using the slang I guess just as long as what is written is understandable. When I send text messages on my mobile though I do use the number 2 for to and too and 4 for the word for! Am I confusing you now? Anyway, at times, this is much easier and you can send a text quickly. Andrew

I do by mistake sometimes! When something isn't very funny, but I try to laugh to be nice, I end up saying lol by accident. Otherwise, talking like that is just weird.
