With the advent of the mobile phone the use of acronyms and abbreviations has flourished. People basically don’t want to hang about and want their message understood quickly – especially the younger generation who are, let’s be honest, a bit impatient!
If you look up the meaning of the word acronym you get ‘An abbreviation of the first letters of each word in the name of something, pronounced as a word’. Using acronyms is an effective way of saying something which takes longer to type, like asap for example. Everyone knows that one – as soon as possible – I’ll get back to you asap.
When you are playing online bingo and chatting away at the same time you have to be ‘au fait’ with the lingo. Now that’s multitasking – and the fairer sex are renowned for being masters at multitasking. Just saying! And yes, I can hear all you guys out there shouting BOO HISS.
I hope you know your GG (Good Game) from your HAGD (Have A Good Day)! We all know that bingo enthusiasts are upbeat and positive people by nature, so most of the acronyms used have a feel-good factor. They are encouraging thus creating a good ambiance. The good atmosphere, we say it time and time again, is paramount to your enjoyment.
When you are having a ball (no pun intended) with your fellow players using this method of communication is very comfortable. New players, don’t be scared – they are not difficult to learn. Soon you will be up there with the best of them and ROFL (rolling on the floor laughing).
You might be waiting for 1TG (1 ball left to win the game) or 2TG (2 balls left to win the game) – easy isn’t it! So WD (well done) TY (thank you) for reading this article. We hope that one day you hit the JP (jackpot) big time. IMHO (in my honest opinion) I’m sure it will be soon and that it will be NP (no problem) for you. HAGD (Have a good day) I’ll BRB (be right back) with another article soon. TTYL (Talk to you later), LOL (laugh out loud).
