To hate "lol"

Especially when used like punctuation.

I have a friend that puts it in messages constantly, eg; "oh I've got a headache lol hope it's gone before I start work later lol"

Makes my eyeballs want to explode. For fucks sake, just use a comma!!

Sometimes its a bit of a "softener" though. If you think over text something might come across a bit blunt or harsh, a "lol" can basically say "this is light-hearted I'm not being a dick to you"

I don't mind lol.

I hate PMSL (think it sounds trashy).

And I don't like hmm- it's rude

Me too. I find it really odd, I often suspect some folks don't know what it stands for because they use it so often and inappropriately.

I read it and think, WTAF are you laughing out loud about. Very odd.

I hate it too.
But not as much as any reference to 'hubby'.

As pp have said it is a softener, I.e:

I can't come to your wedding I'm double booked lol

Your new haircut looks like a dogs dinner lol

Sorry I'm leaving you for someone else lol

I don't mind it when it's meant to respond to something funny. I hate it when people use it as punctuation.
