📲 texts with tea v. 1 incorrect shorthand to save time. I’m here to teach you this slang featuring a random conversation with a friend.
Americans often text in grammatically
GG, Good game - a way to express defeat, not too commonly used (here my friend is referring to the fact that they missed an event)
Hang - meet up, spend time together. see my very old post on “down to hang” for a detailed explanation
Rip, Rest In Peace - it’s over, not happening, can also be used to express defeat
Wyd, what you doing - I say this often, it is shorthand to ask what someone is doing, basically 你在干什么？
Tfti, thanks for the invite - a sarcastic way to tell someone you wish they invited you, but is usually said as a joke
Lame - not cool, not fun, boring
Tbh - to be honest, you can use this to reinforce that you are stating your true opinion
Try using these in the comments if you’d like 😉
