Whenever it comes up while I'm texting I come to an impasse. I know that I don't want to type the whole word because I have a dumbphone and I want to minimize thumb-wear. If I were writing a novel I would write it as 'cause
, but I'm not so it's still too long. The phonetic cuz
is clear and concise but somehow doesn't fit my personality or the tone of most of my communications. I started using cos
but for some reason I associate that with UK English and I'm from the states and it doesn't quite feel right. What do you use and why, if there is a why.
