    Smile abbreviate the words

    lately,I received some short messages.
    I found some problems:
    1) Once walkininto the Main Street,you will slow down and enjoy sweet smell of waffles and enjoyable air.

    2) the boy knows that the girl's father does notike him.

    I don't know whether using the abbreviation is very popular and fashion.

    Re: abbreviate the words

    No.

    Those abbreviations are definitely not correct, popular or fashionable.

    'walking into' / 'not like' are correct.

    Re: abbreviate the words

    It is possible that the sender of the text simply mistyped, and did not check the message before sending it.
