BBIA, uhh

Today a friend said "brb" which, of course, means "be right back." Twenty minutes later, he returned. This got me thinking about the various abbreviations we all use for "i'm going away and will return in approximately x minutes." Here's my list:

  • BRB (be right back): 0-5 minutes
  • BBIAF (be back in a few): 5-10 minutes
  • BBIAB (be back in a bit): 10-30 minutes
  • BBL (be back later) 10-180 minutes
  • BBWHFO (be back when hell freezes over): never? 🙂

Why I put so much thought into stupid, useless stuff like this I'll never know. Imagine how productive I could be if I just typed "bye" and then left for an indeterminate amount of time.

  1. Surely BBIAF should be (be back in a few).. I'm sure you'll have changed that by the time anyone else reads this comment, leaving me looking stupid though 🙂

  2. Yeah, cheers for that 😀

  3. I would have deleted your comment, but I don't do that without asking people if it's okay first, and you didn't leave an email address, so…
