A text response of "k" or "ok" "yep" to a non-question is unecessary and a waste of our time.
We all know how texts work: I send you a text, it pops up on your cell phone, you see it.
Some texts have questions and require an answer ("Do you want me to come over?"). Others are simply a statement and require no response ("I'm grabbing a beer with Jimmy and Bunk."). In the latter case, I know you've seen my text (at least that is assumed), so telling me OK isn't necessary unless you feel like you need to give me permission. Sending me "k" is a waste of both of our time, even if it is only 10 seconds each (but at least it isn't a voicemail).
It isn't had to figure out: only send a text message if you have some actual value to add, acknowledgement texts aren't necessary
