Are your children or grandkids sending you strange texts with symbols and capitals that don’t spell a word? We set out to uncover the sometimes strange world of the younger generation who live by mottos boiled down to acronyms. We’re sure you are all familiar with LOL (laugh out loud) but here are ten more surprising yet funny acronyms. Why not drop them in the next text message you use?
YOLO – You Only Live Once
Often said before you want to do something you wouldn’t usually do.
ROFL – Rolling On the Floor Laughing
Used when someone has said something so funny LOL just will not suffice.
TMI – Too Much Information
When someone tells you something too personal or something you didn’t really want to know
SMH - Shaking My Head
Usually used when one is disappointed with someone or something.
TLDR – Too Long; Didn’t Read
If you cannot be bothered reading a long message or post but want to reply.
FYI – For Your Information
An easy way to say you should really know this.
ATM – At the Moment
Not a bank machine but a simple way to tell someone what you’re doing right now.
JK – Just Kidding
When you’ve said something and you are unsure someone will understand it is a joke.
IMHO – In My Humble Opinion
A disclaimer that lets people know what you say should not be taken as fact but just as your opinion.
ILY – I love you
Usually pronounced as a whole word rather than individual letters.
