We are fascinated with everything instantaneous. So much so, that we choose to cut our phrases short and turn them into acronyms. Maybe for convenience, or maybe we’ve become too lazy. For whatever reason, they’ve become deeply embedded into our daily lives.

Acronyms such as IDK (i don’t know), WRU (where are you), and ILY (I love you) are common in our texts, PMs, and DMs. But we dove deep into the internet and found some other acronyms you didn’t think existed (or at least only a handful know).

Here is a list of acronyms which IMO are pretty GR8.

  1. LYLAS – Love You Like A Sister
  2. MHOTY – My Hat’s Off To You
  3. FWIW – For What It’s Worth -or- Forgot Where I Was
  4. VBG – Very Big Grin
  5. NRN – No Reply Necessary
  6. DILLIGAS – Do I Look Like I Give A Sh**
  7. OT – Off Topic
  8. YMMD – You Made My Day
  9. SCNR – Sorry, Could Not Resist
  10. CYS – Check your Settings
  11. IIRC – If I Recall / Remember Correctly
  12. 4YEO / FYEO – For Your Eyes Only
  13. C&P – Copy and Paste
  14. HTH – Hope This Helps
  15. WFM – Works for Me
  16. FACK – Full Acknowledge
  17. NIMBY – Not In My Back Yard
  18. SITD – Still In The Dark
  19. EOD – End of Discussion
  20. SLAP – Sounds Like A Plan
  21. P911 – Parent Alert
  22. YAM – Yet Another Meeting

AWCGO(And we could go on) but I think we’ve made our point. Whether it’s quirky, convenient, or just plain absurd, they’re here and not going anywhere. What are your favorite acronyms? We’d like to know. Share your thoughts and we’ll TTYL.
