LOL.

Till a year ago, I used to find the word ‘hahaha’ rude, because I never pictured people laughing like Santa each time I said something remotely funny – ‘Ha Ha Ha’ (or Ho Ho Ho, same thing).

‘Hehehe’ on the other hand sounded more like laughter, and less offensive.

However, I now use both words in conversation, but LOL, never!


I find the word LOL, and all the other stupid words like ROFL, LMAO, etc. downright rude. Am I the only one?

LOL is the acronym for ‘Laugh Out Loud’, but when I say something hilarious and someone responds with ‘LOL’, I don’t find it very flattering.

It sounds more like an irritable teenager telling me ‘that wasn’t really funny, but I’m bored and I’ll use this stupid acronym to show how fake thrilled I am’.


I, on the other hand, use the word ‘LOL’ only when I’m angry or irritated, or if someone makes fun of me and I don’t find it amusing.

So if I use the word ‘LOL’ when I’m having a conversation with you, know that I’m pissed!

  1. I’m going to have to go back and read every comment that you’ve made on my blog and see how many times you’ve used LOL or LMAO. 😉 Seriously, though, I think that those ‘words’ are terms of endearment and that most people use them as a compliment.

    1. Hehe I’m very kind when I comment on people’s posts, so don’t worry.. 😁🙈
      I somehow feel that those words are an exaggeration. In this case, for the first time, I prefer emojis to words. 😜😂

  2. My friend would say that “lol” looks like a person is drowning with their arms sticking out of the water. You’ll never look at lol the same way ever again.

    There’s a time and place to use but not abuse the lol. I get irritated when people abuse lol. Like, they add lol to the end of every sentence lol I guess everything is funny to them lol it makes me wanna punch them in the face >.>

    1. Hahahaha I love your friend’s take on lol, it’s hilarious! 😁

      I agree, they add lol everywhere. It’s super irritating! Even when they’re saying something serious they add lol, which doesn’t really make any sense. 🙄

      1. Definitely. She even went so far to contact me on IG asking me to unfollow her because apparently she doesn’t know how IG works.🤦‍♀️ It was weird, and you’re totally right about that. Adios! 😂

      2. She kept saying “don’t leave me. Don’t block me” and I said I wouldn’t, and yet she blocked me. 🙄 I’m quite sure she meant laugh out loud. She would add it to literally everything and I think she lacked empathy. A weirdo for sure.
