Have you ever misused an abbreviation or acronym, thinking it stood for something different (as in thinking LOL meant Lots Of Love, etc.)?

I thought that FTW stood for fuck the world. I thought that for about 3 years until I found out it actually meant, for the win. Those were awkward times.

My wife was guilty of LOL, lots of love, when she first started texting. I've been embarrassed by asking the wrong person the meaning of some, like MILF and RCH...

This reminds me of the post of someone dying and the older women replied LOL thinking it meant lots of love

I haven't, but my technology newbie mom recently got an iPhone and loves texting. She makes up her own text speak and the. Doesn't understand why we don't know what she means. Hahaha!
