Drives me crazy!!!

Using abbreviations and acronyms that I don't know, because I don't know them, then calling me stupid and old for asking what it means. Happens a lot.
I don't have so many. I guess I'm somewhat difficult to irritate. But the one thing that annoys me a bit is when someone texts me like this:
"Hey, can I ask you a question?"
"I have something to tell you!"
And I receive the text at like 3AM in the morning when I'm asleep and then the next day, I read the message and ask what's up and they don't reply for ages. :-D
Mostly it annoys me since it's so inefficient and they could have just gone out and said what they wanted to say or ask what they wanted to ask without this unnecessary back-and-forth delay in communication. I think it's an attempt to apply social etiquette in normal back-and-forth conversations in person to an online context, but it becomes incredibly inefficient in those cases if the person isn't immediately available to reply.
And the suspense of trying to figure out what they wanted to say or ask while waiting lengthy periods for a reply irritates me. :-D
