A friend was being abit of a knob about a situation earlier and in my mind I felt like just saying "yabu" and walking off. Starting to think I spend too much time on mn grin

Language has evolved and everyone needs to understand this. This very morning my cat made me late for work; instead of giving me the 'talk to the bum cos the paw aint listening' look (sooo 2007) he could've used the ODFOW hmm glare.

YOLO = You only live once

Unlikely as it's origination was a middle class parenting site...

YOLO is youth speak..

Saying Ya-bu or Yah-boo might work but unlikely imo, all the acronyms on here are like Greek to my friends uneducated in mumsnet speak..

Let alone teenagers....

Yabu has been around far longer than yolo.

Schmoop Tue 09-Dec-14 18:55:32

as a word said out loud?

It could, but I'd be sad if it did happen. I am very fond of YABU, but YOLO is irritating.

No, 'BAE' stands for 'Before Anyone Else' (so like your very best friend).

And yes, it does apparently mean shit in Danish fgrin
