And people who actually say it in conversation should be physically chastised. Immediately. A slap around the chops will suffice. No warning. No excuses. If it's funny, laugh. If it's not, funny, don't laugh. But don't give a half-giggle and say the word 'lol'. DON'T DO IT.

The other thing I have noticed on social media is people posting photos of their babies and other people saying 'owwwww (s)he's so cute' instead of 'awwww'. I thought Owwwww was when you hurt yourself? When did Awwww become Owwww and why? WHY???

<Adjusts rage-pants as waistband is cutting in, checks calendar to see when period is due, and stomps off in search of chocolate>

I hate people who put unfunny actions in those < > brackets.

Horses for courses, innit.

Lol <slaps head> I hear you ladies grin

hope you found your chocolate, but just in case you didn't, here - chocolate

Annoys me too, especially as I have a friend called Lol. Thankfully not heard it in conversation, I might have to say something then grin

Regarding the awww owww thing. I'd feel sorry for them and assume ignorance. Unless its some weird regional thing.

DS says "lol". Slap him round the chops and I'll kick to the far side of fuck.

HTH. Lol.

DD 8 has started saying "O. M. G." I don't feel very charitably towards her when she does so. angry

Ha ha - DD8 and me actually say 'my bad' - horrendous but makes me laugh every time.

I have been known to 'lol' but cringed on reflection.

O.M.G. Like seriously O.M.G. I'm LOL at your rage <ROFL>.
What chocolate? Wanna share?

My Aunt types lol and thinks it's lots of love, as in 'your uncle has been taken to hospital, lol' I should really tell her.

I also thought it was lots of love for ages (maybe years!)
It fecking annoys the shite out of me too. But I am terribly grumpy......

It's weird to say it in RL when you could just laugh? It also annoys me immensely in text too- what's wrong with an old fashioned haha? It's one more letter?

I take lol as a sign that you're possibly someone who cries with laughter at Mrs Brown's Boys.

I hate LOL but threads like this make me smile and laugh which is always welcome on a grey and wet Wednesday morning so maybe lolling isn't all that bad wink grin

What I don't get with LOL is people sticking it on the end of any random sentence. 'I went to tesco lol'. Eh? hmm

MissPunnyMany Wed 11-May-16 12:49:30

Oh crumpety that drives me insane. 'We were hungry so went and bought a sandwich lol'.

vardy go ahead at your peril, I bet I'm not the only MNetter who will chase you out of threads with a pitchfork grin
