I never say LOL verbally to anyone. It's strictly an Internet thing with me. WHen talking to someone in person, it never comes to mind anyways.

You know you've been online too long when you start saying that to others.

I only use proper grammar on forums when I have time to think. When I instant message, I just quickly type in stuff, although I don't use the short letters like, "U?" or "Neways".

I can't type like that. It's hard. And same with words like 'cuz'. And lots more. im just spacing them right now..

Just remember, like 'wut', and 'wot'. 'g2g'. 'ttyl'. Although i do use 'brb'. But thats it. At least that im aware of..

Haha as a joke, me and my mate started saying LOL purposely when on hol randomly. And haha, one guy we said it to, he started coming to attack us, and we had to say something like

"hey dude, calm down, were only playing", and made the mistake of saying LOL again...

LOL!!!!



i couldn't agree more! i hate it when people IM me with the "heyyyy! lolzzz omgg", ect. i just don't even bother to answer. it makes me mad lol. speaking of LOL, when i first started IMing, way back in like 3rd grade.....yes, 3rd grade, i used to think LOL meant lots of love... oh well. but yeah, i always use proper grammar, but not too proper. i usually don't put periods after any sentences and barely ever capitalize anything. the only acronyms i use are lol, ttyl, and g2g. all the other stuff is stupid
