Like many people around my age (and older), I was completely oblivious about such acronyms as LMAO, TTYL, and other (now obvious) shortcuts. I grew up speaking and spelling actual words. The only acronym I knew was TGIF, but that acronym became a restaurant and I don't know if anyone uses it anymore in its original intent, because if, on a Friday, you say, TGIF, people will think you're going to TGIF.
Life must be too short and too busy to spend a lot of speaking too many syllables and typing such time-consuming words as, "Laughing My Ass Off," and "Talk To You Later." Seems everyone – well, kids mostly – like to abbreviate everything, and listening to them is like hearing a foreign language.
