I just posted this rant on Facebook but wanted to say a bit more.
Things such as apols is now a word meaning apologies which I think probably needs to be said after all of the rants of Ms. Miley Twerking (dance to popular music in a sexually provocative manner involving thrusting hip movements and a low, squatting stance.) all over the stage at the VMA’s (which I did not watch) or grats for congratulations (which I’ll say to those who also chose not to watch LOL).
These have me saying srsly (which is a new word meaning seriously) now a couple are cute like dappy which means silly, disorganized, or lacking concentration (think I’ve been that before) or selfie which means a self taken photograph (which I’ve never done successfully}.
BYOD is a common acronym these days which means bring your own device, generally your own tablet, smartphone, or laptop, to use at work.
For the most part I think adding these to our vocabulary is “derp” (speech regarded as meaningless or stupid, or to comment on a foolish or stupid action). Borrowing from an ESPN segment all I can say is “come on man!”
