    Red face K es de tu vida trabajas ??

    Buenos Dias a Todos

    Please could you help me with this

    K es de tu vida trabajas ?

    I understand what it means but I am not sure of its context. Is it rhetorical as in, this is the work of your life, or is it literal as in, What do you work as in life ?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated
    Muchas Gracias
    Samantha

    So what's new with you? Are you working?

    I think written out it would be ¿Qué es de tu vida? - ¿trabajas?

    I agree with Gernt.
    It's a really really really informal context, such as msn or a text message. Is that possible?

    Hi, Thank you for your thoughts on this. I was an e mail actually, so i was not expecting to find such colloquial types of abbreviations. Its funny the more I learn the more I also learn about the people I speak with.
    Many Thanks
