Senior Texting - Cracking the Code

If yours are like mine, mothers and mothers-in-law are getting very savvy with the old texting. My mother texts me more than anyone else (usually about nothing, but that's by the by). Unfortunately, they use completely different acronyms from the teens so it's a whole new learning curve.

Over the weekend however, my mother-in-law sent me this, which I know you'll all find equally helpful:

STC (Senior Texting Code).

ATD: At The Doctor's

BFF: Best Friend Farted

BTW: Bring The Wheelchair

BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth

CUATSC: See You At The Senior Center

DWI: Driving While Incontinent

FWB: Friend With Beta Blockers

FWIW: Forgot Where I Was

FYI: Found Your Insulin

GGPBL: Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low!

GHA: Got Heartburn Again

HGBM: Had Good Bowel Movement

IMHO: Is My Hearing-Aid On?

LMDO: Laughing My Dentures Out

LOL: Living On Lipitor

LWO: Lawrence Welk's On

OMMR: On My Massage Recliner

OMSG: Oh My! Sorry, Gas.

ROFL... CGU: Rolling On The Floor Laughing... And Can't Get Up

SGGP: Sorry, Gotta Go Poop

TTYL: Talk To You Louder

WAITT: Who Am I Talking To?

WTFA: Wet The Furniture Again

WTP: Where's The Prunes?

WWNO: Walker Wheels Need Oil

Probably a little more than we all needed to know really..........


  1. Ha ha... if only my mum and mil had cracked the internet as well as text I'd forward them that!

  2. Oh, Lord. I don't know whether to laugh or feel utterly depressed by that (feeling my age this morning!).

  3. My mother texted me for the first time this week, needless to say it was quite unexpected. I'll pass this along to her. She has a sense of humour.

  4. My favourite in the list is ROFL...CGU for some reason that just tickles me.

  5. brilliant. I love it. It applies to me mostly actually.... will send folk over next post. XX

  6. Totally stunning! I particularly like WAITT and shall adopt it right now.

  7. WAITT could work for me, too! this post is very funny!

  8. Very funny, I'll have to try and remember some of those.

    My daughter showed me a 'facebook fail' entry where the mother had written "Your grandmother has just passed away, lol" thinking that lol meant lots of love.

  9. Those are hilarious! I'm off to share them with my mother/stepmother.

  10. brilliant - haven't we got fun stuff to look forward to?

  11. That's brilliant - do you mind if I print it out to show to my mum?

    She doesn't text me even though several people have shown her how to. She doesn't seem to cotton on to how to do it. Very frustrating!

  12. CJ - Not at all. Perhaps this will encourage her to give it a try!

  13. Love it - that will be us all one day - scary!!

  14. Eeeeeeeeeew. That's so disgusting, I love it!


The more the merrier....
