The mobile slang term “sexting” was an irritating term as soon as it entered the American lexicon (I think Tiger made cemented it into pop culture history) It’s almost as annoying as the words momversation, webinar, artisinal and staycation.
Lucky for us, I got word of some more words that will make American slang irritating rather than clever. Take a look:
Ambitexterity : A multi-tasker’s bread and butter, this ability to use one’s left or right hand to text is the height of skill
Anorexting: This disorder causes individuals to believe that their texts are too fat and limit all messages to less than 20 characters.
Cinetexting: The annoying practice of reading and responding to text messages during a movie
Ex-ting: Not recommended. If you don’t want to talk to your former flame or spouse, don’t do the passive aggressive texting two-step with them, either.
Flexting: The art of bragging about one’s physic to the opposite sex via constant texts
Maxters: Master text messagers pride themselves on being able to consistently use every last bit of their character count restriction.

Sarca-SMS: As misunderstood as “I was just joking!” inter-office emails, sending a sarcastic text could bring about one of two responses: Laxting – They’re not ignoring you, they’re just letting the conversation go slack until you have something worthy to say. Nexting – They’ve moved on to the next name in the inbox. Sorry, Charlie, you don’t even get a “K” reply.
Snaxting: It’s the era of digital snackers after all. Sending an SMS is just one task they’re doing while munching, updating their status and watching TV.
Tuxting: The inappropriate act of sending texts while standing on the alter during one’s wedding ceremony.
Wrexting: Gabbing on the go by text is bringing an inevitable rise in pedestrian collisions and worse, automotive accidents. Don’t text and drive!
Of the “-exting” words above, which ones would incline you to self-mutilate if one of your loved ones used it on a hourly basis?
