No, he doesn't.

There's no real excuse for it. I have a teenage son and I'm considerably closer to his age than my boss is to his son, and I'd not be caught dead using text speak for any purpose other than irony.

I've picked that abbreviation (smth) from my teacher at school. She is now a lady in her 80s. I guess it's real classic. Much older than sms. Don't know where she got it though. Maybe it's her own invention.

I'm sure it is derived from some form of shorthand. I use them in notes for myself, I just tend to shy away from using them in formal communication, but I'm quite OCD about stuff like that.

Great that you know it is OCD

Thanks for the info anyway. I'll try not to use it when I write.

I wasn't having a go at you - just describing my own usage. Internet forums (fora?) do not usually fall under most people's definition of 'formal communication'

For what it's worth, you write better English than many native speakers on here ...

At least she doesn't use Pitmans shorthand....
