I know people who actually hate writing! I once interviewed a young guy for a job as a labourer and he wrote in text form eg I used 2 work @ ........

There's a tv series here called 'Grumpy Old Men.' I think I'll put my name down.

A lot of the young one' use text talk when they write. The good Mrs Gut even gets essays handed in in text at times. When she was marking the HSC (final school exam) they weren't even allowed Mark down if it was written in "text".

When I did 'o' level maths (remember them?) I think we were the first wave to be allowed calculators! It felt like a licence to cheat.

I remember the old joke about about a boy being disqualified for cheating in a philosophy exam. He was suspected of looking into the soul of the boy sitting next to him!
