  • I'll admit, I have. But that's only if the person is lagging themselves in putting little to no effort at all in their texts too. My number one pet peeve is when people do one word answers. It annoys the the shit out of me, especially if their the one initiating the conversation. Like what was the point in texting me to begin with. Like, if you ask me what I'm up to and I tell you and you're response is "cool" or if I reply and ask the same thing, I get a "nothing".? Like seriously. What the hell, I don't get it. Maybe I expect too much, but still..the conversation never gets very far..ughh

  • No I don't think I ever have. I can't really stand one-word text messages, let alone one letter haha. The closest I've gotten to using "K" has been the few times I've had conversations like this:

    Person: Are we going to lunch tomorrow?

    Me: Sure, where do you want to go?

    Person: You pick.

    Me: Golden Corral sound okay?

    Person: Yep sounds good.

    Me: Kay. :)

    But I always attach a smiley to it hahaha.

  • I never use it. I also hate it when other people text me "k". When people do it to me, I basically ignore the next text they send me because it sort of bothers me.

    I mean, is it THAT hard to just type "OK" or "OKAY" ?

    It's one of my pet peeves.

  • Yes, all the time. Usually I text "K" because I understand what they are saying and I got the message.

    When my mom, sister, friend, boss, or who ever texts me "I will be there in five minutes" I text, "K". lol it's easy and they know I go the message.

  • Yes, when the conversation has turned for the worst because of an argument or disagreement.

    When the person is so boring and I have nothing else to say.

    When I don't really want to speak to that person and hint that I'm done with the conversation.

    I don't do it on purpose unless I'm ticked off. I usually have paragraph texts lol so you'll know when I'm serious with a 'K' text.

  • Ya I have many times, mostly because someone say OK gotta go, or I will text you later or at a specific time, if so I just respond K unless I have something else that should be said, also on occasion if someone response with an OK, I will say k back just saying that I responded.

  • ..So guilty...

    I use it way too much haha. But not purposely. It kind of just comes as a reflex to me? Hmm, not completely sure.

    My mom sent me a text a few minutes ago:

    Mom: "If you don't finish your tax papers tonight I will be angry. I will take away your phone or laptop and no being mad at me for this"

    Me: "K"

    LOL...

    • you don't use it as a way to end the conversation because you are bored with it?

    • not in and of itself, no.

      it sometimes does end a convo, but really, it was over anyways.

      If I'm looking to end a convo, I either say I gotta go, gotta sleep.. or just lol everything until they get frustrated with me and stop

  • Yes, I use it mostly to confirm that I understood whatever they were saying or sometimes I use it prevent an unnecessary argument.

  • Just for the lulz. This guy I was chatting with on Skype wrote some elaborate effing essay of 750 words or so and I replied with a "k". We both had a good laugh, then I sent my actual reply.

    Normally I never do that though.

What Guys Said 16

  • Yes, I've responded with this literally a moment ago. Context:

    "...I'll be waiting by my phone :P"

    "K"

    I mostly use it as an affirmation but, sometimes, I place an "O" in front of it to convey a state of being.

  • My old man always does this, partially because he has an old P.O.S cell and it would take him to long to write out responses, so he types back 'K' as an acknowledgment. When the NSA was revealed as tapping phones and reading texts I told him it made me furious. He replied "With me, it will just say K. K. K... Oh crap, they're gonna think I'm in the clan!"

  • yeah all the time. Usually when I receive some info and the "k" is to acknowledge I've read and understand what they wrote/what were doing. Never as a passive aggressive response or anything like that.

    • a major reason is for what ashinthislife said above. they are bored with the conversation with you so they want to end it with 'k'

    • It's one more letter to add, it shouldn't be so difficult to use.
