10 surprising yet funny text acronyms

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.
