Texting Acronyms...OMG

I have actually surprised myself on how well I am able to decifer acronyms that are used while texting...there have been LOL (laugh out loud), OMG (oh my gosh), LMAO (Laughing my ass off), BRB ( be right back)...all of those that in context you can tell what they are.  And I blush a little to admit that I am often proud of myself when I can decifer ones like...ROTFLMAO (rolling on the floor laughing my ass off). 

So I thought I would take a look at the most common texting acronyms...OMG!  There are WAY more than I could have ever imagined.  Some of these were worth mentioning just because of how silly they are, but there will be some that will educate parents of texting children as well.

Here we go...hope you get as much out of this as I did...LOL

AAWC - After awhile crocodile
ALOL - Actually laughing out loud  (I never realized that LOL meant pretend laughing out loud)...LOL
ASLP - Age, sex, location, picture  (This is kind of scary that it's that easy to ask for all of those things.)
AYKM - Are you kidding me?  (I was aware of the figure it out.)
Azm - Awesome
BTWITIAILWY - By the way, I think I am in love with you  (WHAT????  Who could remember all of the letters...wouldn't it be easier to write the whole thing.)
BTSOOM - Beats the shizzle out of me (This one just made me laugh)
CNRHKYITF - Chuck Norris roundhouse kick you in the face (OK so I would have NEVER got this one on my own.)
CRTLA - Can't remember the three letter acronym (Wouldn't writing the three word phrase be easier than wasting your time texting this).
CRTLA - Can't remember the three letter acronym
FORGIVE - Faith, Obedience, Righteousness, Grace, Inheritance, Victory, Edify
GGOGG - Great gobs of goose grease
GSHIWMP - Giggling so hard I wet my pants (I actually will use this one...I like it)
OMFGYASB Oy my freaking gosh, you're a sexy beast
HH1/2KO - Ha-ha, half-kidding only (How do you "half kid"?)
IAGSMSOL - I am getting some money sooner or later (Only in this economy would there be one like this.)
ICOCBW - I could, of course, be wrong (This probably gets little to no use...LOL)
IMHBMAO - In my humble but most accurate opinion (Really?  Would someone really say that?)
IFOCN - In front of computer naked (Either really funny...or really disturbing... I side with disturbing)
KOS - Kill on site (That is a little concerning)
LMFAOPIMP - Laughing my freaking a** off peeing in my pants
MBS - Mom behind shoulder (All you moms with texting teens better memorize this one...LOL)
OMFGYASB - Oh my freaking gosh, you're a sexy beast (I get this all the time...YR)
P911 - Parent alert! (Again might have a little studying to do.)
ROFLTRABTD - Rolling on floor laughing, thinking Republicans are better than Democrats (Are they serious?)
RYFS - Are you freakin' serious?
SPROS - Stop, parents reading over shoulder (Again...hello mom and, study, study.  Be up on the latest!)
UY - Up yours (Just in case you need it...)
YYSSW - Yeah yeah, sure sure, whatever

If you are interested in furthering your education in the acronyms of texting...go here.  There is even a section that you can enter the acronym that you are not sure about and it will tell you what it means.

Hope you got a little use, definitely some humor and perhaps a little wake up calls for the parents out of this post. 

TTYS  HAG8D  (Talk to you soon...have a great day)


  1. I'm still learning how to text so I guess I won't be needing the acronym education just yet! :)

  2. I can't imagne what they will come up next to abbrevate. Thanks for the list ... it was fun to look through!

  3. A girl in my office picked up a book of these around Christmas. We had so much fun laughing at the silliness of some of them! Why can't people just say what they mean? : )

  4. Oh man now I'm sitting here thinking about what happens when my daughter becomes a teenager. Thanks for joining the Follow Friday this week.

  5. I'll surprise my son with some of these and maybe he'll finally think I'm hip. (ALOL)
