You know salty is completely farking used up when the local Friends of That Guy are using it over and over again like a 5 year old that just learned a new word like 'polymer' or some shiat.

Sorry, I went to school. I don't use abbreviations or weird slang-like expressions on or off the Internet.

Quit harshing my vibe, Daddy-O!

/I might not be using the correct slang
 
2018-02-05 11:33:44 AM  
Just - don't. There is nothing sadder or more cringe-worthy than someone trying to be "hip" by adopting age-inappropriate slang. It's like watching grandpa greet the black neighbors with "Yo, yo, yo dawgs!"

/not a Millennial

Is there a british version?

BYU - Bob's your uncle
LDB - Like a dog's balls

Etc etc

I use them all the time, but I'm in a specialized field. It's all acronyms, verbs and perhaps a gerund here and there.

Throwing shade: This has been around for awhile. I worked with a guy in the early 90s who used the term all the time.

Lit: Used to mean high and/or drunk.

Salty: Been around forever. I knew people in high school in the 80s who used the term.

BAE: Anyone who used this term is flat out retarded.

As for the list of "text message" abbreviations many of these have been in use since the early days of online gaming and chat rooms.

List is missing AF.... as in "List is sus AF"

The one that gets on my nerves lately is "clapback."
I think it means to have a good comeback when someone is "throwing shade."
 
2018-02-05 11:57:17 AM  
Meh.  I know I'm a square, but I don't mind.

It's hip to be square.

I recognize almost every single one of those acronyms from my ICQ days over 20 years ago.  Sorry yungins, but it's not all that original.

Opacity: List is missing AF.... as in "List is sus AF"


I was informed by my Millennial nephew that in proper usage 'Woke' should always be suffixed with AF.

2018-02-05 12:39:45 PM  
e.g. "Did you go to the Bruno Mars concert last night? It was lit."

And in one slang sentence I am assured that I do not need to speak Millennial, ever.

That term makes me want to slap people around with a hammer.

Nine words and and 35 text abbreviations, millennials have a surprisingly small vocabulary.

Do you want 'groovy'?  Because that's how you get 'groovy'.

Deciphering slang is inefficient, especially if you work with people from around the world who aren't going to get regional terms.

// there's enough room in my brain for Caribbean patois, gangsta and internet memology, that's about it.
 
2018-02-05 01:08:49 PM  
No No No! Millennials don't communicate verbally. They converse via phone emojis & ironic eye rolls.

I like to think of myself as a "hip" 31-year-old who can still hold my own with younger cool kids.

I like to think of myself as a "uncaring" 51-year-old who doesn't give a shait how children entertain themselves.
