Our language gets slaughtered in so many ways I really think it's ridiculous.

My son and his future wife are home from college for the summer and I have noticed they verbally communicate using text lingo! I say something witty and rather than laugh they both say LOL. . . . See or hear something strange on tv or during a conversation and they say W. T. F or W. T. H.... There are more, but these seem to be the most common. It cracks me up and I was wondering if any of you have noticed the youth around you doing this. I have asked them why as it makes no sense to me and I find it comical and they can't seem to explain why they do it. Is this wide spread? Why not just laugh rather than say LOL? Are we getting that lazy?
