    I hope i’m not alone here, but i often have no-idea what all these abbreviations that people use actually mean. I mean some are obvious lol, but some are just confusing!

    Can we get some sort of list for the more obscure ones?

    What the hell does PMSL mean? I keep reading it as Pre-menstrual stupid language!

    I’ve got most of them sorted. But some of GL’s leave me stumped.

    loving AATK! Could have done with that when I lost my last job, as it was the reason why!!! I have spent a lot of time trying to figure out what ppl mean, and IMO some of these acronyms are getting longer that the real words.
