Normal = Congratulations!
Generally acceptable abbreviation = Congrats!
Absolutely ridiculously lazy = Gratz!
WTF is "gratz"?
List your examples, plz.
"K" instead of O.K., or alright, etc....
Two things bring me to tears. The unconditional Love of God,the service of the United States Military,past,present,and future.

Prolly is the worst. It means the they can't spell.

Let the enemy come till he’s almost close enough to touch. Then let him have it and jump out and finish him up with your hatchet.
I generally hate abbreviations and butchering of the English language.
Totes would be a strong contender for number one in my book. It should be federal law that you get punched in the face for using it.

in CT i had a good friend who was 1st generation naturalized American citizen from Italy. He explained Gratz was Italian short for Grazie. American Use the word incorrectly. I looked it up when i saw your post.
Vaycay (I guess that is how you would spell it) drives me nuts.

Wut R U talkin bout, redneck?
I believe texting will be the death of the English language. I was reading an article in the New York Times the other day that had "R" instead of "are" in it. Apparently, no one caught it before it went to press. (Yeah, yeah, mistakes happen and whatnot, but it proves my point.

I'm still wondering what a "boo" is. Term of endearment, perhaps? Thankfully, I retired. One of the women in my office was a wannabe hipster. Her 16 year old son was gay, and she was full of non-interesting words and phrases. I didn't understand much of what she said. Fortunately, she ran HR so I ignored her.
Not necessarily. Just as I sometimes drop the "g" in favour of a trailing apostrophe, use "ain't" (which was drilled into me ain't proper English), use "y'all," "y'know," double negatives, drop a pronoun (e.g.: "knew that"), intentionally misspell (e.g.: "tell ya whut"), etc.: I sometimes use "prolly" for effect.

Along these lines, I hate when people say OMG. Actually say the letters O, M, G. And other text speak.
Or instead of “laughing very hard” they say “I was ROFLing.”
I want to put them out of my misery.

This is rampant now. Magazines, newspapers, online news sites. Misspelled or missing words everywhere. In this day of spell check I'm not sure how they miss misspelled words in a professional publication.

Now go have a good one....
The newspapers are getting in on the game. Too much trouble or time to spell Birmingham. It is now BHAM in the headlines. This is the Mobile Press Register. I guess Bham sounds better in a Rap video.

Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.
What do you suggest, then? LOL?
