NEVER EVER EVER IS IT ACCEPTABLE TO SAY "PLZ GET BACK TO ME ASAP - THNX" IN A COVER LETTER!!!! *whack whack whack with the ruler of supreme authority*

Thanks for listening, kids. Hope you have a wonderful day!

LET ME NO IF U THINK IM GOOD 4 TEH JOB! LOLKTHXBAI^^!
OMG! I BE TEH BEST QA/TESTER EVAH!!!oneone!!! YOU MUST HIER MI NOW KTHXBAI!!!eleven!!
someone actually did that? damn..... I don't even really like to use internet shorthand on the internet
Yeah, someone really did send us an email like that. I totally deleted it - I'm sorry, but if you can't be bothered to use professional language while trying to get a job, I just don't want to waste my time...

I despise internet shorthand with a passion. The only ones I allow myself to use are LOL, BRB, and OMG (very sparingly on that one). I twitch when someone types "how ru?"
i h8 it wen ppl use 2 4 to and U 4 you. You can't take the extra keystroke to put one more character on the screen? I h8 ppl.
hehehe I will use ppl but for the most part, if I need a rosetta stone to figure out what in gods name you're saying, it's so not worth my time :-P
wurd
It's like in KoL - I was TOTALLY twitching all through the valley or whatever of the Baron.

*twitch twitch* n00b *twitch twitch* l4m0rz *twitch*
same here. i wasn't twitching, though....it was more of a cringe. that's part of the reason i don't go there anymore. if i do, i don't read anything

l33t 5p34k should only be used in a joking fashion. Anyone who speaks it seriously (or tries to send me a resume with it) will be shot on site.

OMG I M TEH SUX0RZ BIATCH!1!1oneeleven3!! |\|0 j08 4 j00, |\|008! 1 |-|8 j00. HAHAHAHHA

*shoots own self*
That is just insane. The only time I use shorthand is really in Instant Messages, and even then it is the standard and acceptable brb or the occasional LOL. I have noticed I get a little smiley-happy sometimes.
I, too, fall victem to the smilies, but those aren't too bad if they are in personal conversations and whatnot.

It's when it gets into business letters or even in real time speach that makes me twitch (someone has actually said "LOL" to me once in conversation. IT hurt. A LOT).

Ahh! I think I would laugh right in their face if they actually SAID LOL!

Business is no place to sound like a twelve-year-old.
luckily it was just in an outside conversation, and not in a business setting, but you're so right - internet shorthand is great when you're trying to convince the world you're a 14 year old girl who's way too much into Sailor Moon for ANYBODY'S sake, but not when you're trying to land a job.

Like, OMG! I M TEH BEST VISE PREZ EVAH!!! <3
I've had to consciously stop myself from doing that a few times. I've also been known to confuse my online nick-du-jour with my actual name once or twice.
