9 Texts That Landed Every Malaysian In Trouble - World Of Buzz 6

Texting is a big part of our lives. Most of us spend a big part of our day constantly texting with our friends and family, keeping them updated about every mundane detail of our lives. Admit it, you do this too!

But is texting really the best way for us to keep in touch with our loved ones? Once too often, we’d find ourselves in hot soup because there’s no voice nor face behind the words displayed on our screens, giving no emotion to the words we type. Hence, leading to a lot of miscommunication!

I’m sure we have sent at least a few of these text messages below and suddenly find ourselves landing in hot water!

 

1. The Deadly “K”

The first rule of texting is you do not reply “k” to anyone, regardless of any situation. Even if you’re so busy that you don’t have time to pee, never, ever reply “k”! Otherwise, this will almost definitely spark a long argument.

 

2. Sending “OMW” (on my way)

When in reality, we actually have not left the house and end up suffering death stares from your hangry friends for having to wait 30 minutes for you to start dinner. The Malaysian Timing struggle is real!

 

3. Sending “bojio/tak ajak”

We all know that 90% of the time, telling your friends “bojio” or “tak ajak” doesn’t mean anything.

But then there are some friends who take it seriously and really do ‘ajak’ you out. As you were just saying it for fun and had no intention of going, having to reject their invitation only gives you negative points on the friendship scale! Don’t blame anyone if next time they don’t “jio” you anymore!

4. Using ‘short forms’ for words

You know chatspeak where a lot of words are cut short or even have its spelling altered so it’s shorter? Well, it could pose a lot of misunderstanding if someone had read it out of context.

For instance, when Malaysians spell “cum” instead of “come”. Suddenly an innocent sentence becomes totally NSFW!

5. TYPING A SENTENCE IN ALL CAPS

Typing in all caps is a risky move. People will be wondering if you’re actually angry or excited! And even if you gave them a call, it can be difficult to interpret the tone of your voice.

Imagine texting your mother and saying, “MUM, I HAVE SO MUCH TO TELL YOU ABOUT MY JOB TONIGHT”. Your poor mother will be left wondering is it something good or bad throughout the whole day.

Which is why it’s probably much better to share your good news or bad news through video calls, where they can see your emotions easily. If you’re worried that your data may drain quickly, try using Malaysia’s very first limitless data plan! Yes, did you know webe has a never-ending data plan for only RM79 a month?

6. Trying to express sarcasm

It’s not easy to show that you are being sarcastic through text as it often depends on the expression on your face. Because of this, once too often your friends took your words too literally and got offended. How come you all liddat one?

This wouldn’t have happened if you have made a video call, where your friends can clearly see and hear that you are joking! webe’s limitless data plan allows you the freedom to do that!

7. Not using punctuation

Some of us Malaysians really underestimate the power of a comma, full stop and other symbols that make a sentence whole. One missing comma could possibly change the whole sentence.

8. Bahasa Rojak

Living in a multi-cultural country is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because we can form sentences with words from multiple languages, but a curse because some words share the same spelling as well.

Eg. “I nak air.” Soooo, is it air or water? Your friend wouldn’t know for sure either!

We’ve all been through the hilarious, awkward and frustrating moments when someone had mistakenly interpreted our harmless text. This wouldn’t have happened if you have just made a simple video call and explained everything!

 

9. Autocorrect for Malay gets you every time

And because we love mixing a few languages in our texts, autocorrect doesn’t know that and may change something truly innocent into a totally different meaning. And sometimes people just don’t believe you when you blame it on autocorrect!

Yes, although texting is great and all, there are times that it just doesn’t cut it anymore. A much better alternative is calling them but even listening to their voice doesn’t show you everything you need to know. Sometimes, you just need to see their faces.  That’s because,

Nothing can be compared to actually seeing your friends and family’s faces where every emotion and true feeling can be seen clearly.
