Sounds like you may be better off . At least you co worker sounds like a teenager not a professional.
#26 Professionalism is a thing for for letters, phone calls, clients and meetings, not between staff texts. My extremely organised and professional manager text me this morning and said "hey babe, a lot people here don't know how to tie a tie like you, could please start a little earlier to do that so I don't get my arse reemed Xx"
if he is a manager, hes probably a bit older than OP and didnt have full keyboards on the flip phone he learned to text on. i had a flip phone without a full keyboard and it was a huge effort to use proper language. thats why this text lingo came about. it was just way easier to text it.
I think your manager should be the one who is fired for that text message!
Really, thinking that someone should get fired for an informal text. Outside of work, casual language is fine to use. Sending some a warning that they are getting fired by someone else tomorrow does not warrant having the person sending that message getting fired. Also, you seem to be forgetting that the CEO, not the manager, was pissed off at op causing him to get fired.
On the bright side, you'll never have to read another text message from said manager again. That was painful.
"No hard feelins m8" sounds like OP was blamed for something the manager did/didn't do.
I took it to mean that the manager doesn't want any hard feelings between him and Op even though he has to fire him. I assume the CEO would have the manager fire Op as oppose to doing it himself. I also took it to mean that they were friends and he is basically saying he feels sorry for him and hopes they can still be friends.
