    Default LOL, LMAO, ROFL etc

    Have you used them so much in online or texting communication that you found yourself almost saying them IRL?

    Quite a few times I have almost tripped over my tongue trying to put the brakes on my mouth as it tries to form the words Laugh Out Loud.

    Anyone else have this happen to them?

    I type lol way to often aswell, it's like a full stop these days, I need to stop doing it.

    We have the benefit in Dutch that 'LOL' actually means 'fun'

    I've actually said LOL in real life (pronounced it "loll," like "doll"), and everyone laughed, because they got it. I've never used any of the of the others, but that's because I use them infrequently.

    That's better for you, for me I'd be describing an action rather than doing it. It's almost as bad as meeting someone and saying "shake the hand" instead of shaking the hand.

    Yeah, my friends have chuckled when they've realised what almost happened.

    I've totally slipped out an "LOL" before. It's shameful really.

    Why is it so embarrassing?

    My attitude tends to be, if I don't feel comfortable saying "LOL" in front of them, they're not particularly close friends, and I'm going to be on my guard anyway.

    Well, maybe it's who you associate with. Let's just say the people I know all pretty much all spend enough time in front of a computer (or are used to people who do) that there's not really a stigma about it for us.
    I remember when I did it infront of my sister (fellow internet addict) and she found it hilarious. So that was all okay.

    But when I did it infront of one of my friends, she didn't appreciate the hilariousity, so it was a bit embarrassing. I didn't care that much, but it was a bit of a "" moment.

    I found it embarrassing too tbh, not sure why really, since I told my friends myself even though I managed to stop myself in time to cover up my mistake. I thought it was funny enough to draw attention to at the same time.

    So I tripped over my tongue trying to prevent it because I felt a moment of embarrassment. Silly really.
