One of our older readers has sent us a letter containing some suggestions on SMS texting codes for more mature people. Feel free to print this out and keep it somewhere safe (perhaps with your spare set of dentures) for later use…

ATD – At the Doctor’s

BFF – Best Friends Funeral

BTW – Bring the Wheelchair

DIKU – Do I Know You?*

FWIW – Forgot Where I Was

GGPBL – Gotta Go, Pacemaker Battery Low

GHA – Got Heartburn Again

HGBM – Had Good Bowel Movement

IMHO – Is My Hearing-Aid On?

WAITT – Who Am I Talking To?

 

* The answer to this is often “Yes, Dad you do know me”
