Saving time ...

Regularly I get emails / messages including some of the following "abbreviations / net language":

"please give ur price and give information how many words u are able to translate"

That means the writer saved TWO letters = a total of FOUR letters, saving him/her what .. 0.7 seconds? If I may ask, what exactly is done with the "saved" 0.7 seconds? Some reading? Conversation? Writing another mail?

To quote with Erich Fromm, a psychiatrist of German origin who lived and work in the States:
Modern man thinks he loses something - time - when he does not do things quickly.
Yet he does not know what to do with the time he gains -- except kill it.
