  • My brother, sister, and I will try to have conversations using these abbreviations- it always ends in all of us laughing lol.

    But sometimes I will laugh and then later I will think did I laugh or say lol? I guess I use that one too much.

  • I find myself using it with my teenage sons. I'll say something funny (which is usually only funny to me...and completely dorky to them) and I'll finish it up with "JK....LOL". They look at me like I'm such a dork...I love it...LOL

  • my 9yo son started saying OMG to me as a little inside joke, a while back. that same day, some video store clerk LAUGHED her butt off at me, while we settled up! that kinda put me off. #:)
    so, i only say OMG out loud around my little family, because we embrace our dorkiness! my dh says IMHO out loud, which i think is just dumb. i've never-ever used the term for LAUGH OUT LOUD, but that's just me.

  • I don't but a friend of mine uses OMG so much that I have jokingly threatened to superglue duct tape to her mouth next time I hear it. I only did this because every other word she says is OMG, but other than that I don't mind it.
