There are A LOT of ways to be annoying in a text message.
Like writing "lol" a lot, or at all.
Or using this emoticon.
Or forming a fictional, underground, omniscient criminal coalition united under the label "A," and harassing and bullying a group of four high school girls and their loved ones.
But the WORST of the worst texting offenses, by far, is the single letter text "K."
Receiving a "K" text makes everyone instantly furious, NO MATTER WHAT. This is a guarantee.
"K" stands for "Killer" ... of conversations. (Haha.)
Texting "K" means you're too lazy to type out just one extra letter.
"K" makes you seem mad. Are you mad at me??
HOW DOES ONE LETTER SAY SO MUCH AND SO LITTLE AT THE SAME TIME?!
There is only one thing worse than one "k," and that is TWO.
What does "kk" even mean? No seriously, what does it mean?
People who text "k" are just acting like they're soooo busy and inundated with texts that they can only dash off one flippant letter.
It's a total power trip.
So the next time you're texting or IMing...
Say anything BUT "k." (Even "k!" or "ok :)"
And if someone sends you the dreaded "k," feel free to reply like this.
