It is the time of the year again. With Christmas just round the corner, shoppers throng the malls to complete their last minute shopping. As we frantically prepare the Christmas gifts and goodies beneath the Christmas tree, let us not forget to share the meaning of Christmas with those around, especially to those whom we have not said “Hi…how have you been?” for a long time. Sending Christmas cards via snail mail may have dropped in popularity. However, a few simple clicks on your keyboard will have your favourite Christmas card ready in a jiffy. Spent a few moments to create your special e-Christmas card for your friends and loved ones. Wishing all readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

POS, PHAT, MOS, XOXO…..You may have come across these letters or have seen them in written notes and emails, instant messaging, online chats, forums, bulletin boards etc. For those who are not familiar with what such letters mean, it could be quite mind-boggling to decipher the entire sentence to understand what the sender is trying to say.

POS is not the usual transaction code recorded in your bank passbook that means “Point Of Sale” referring to cashless transactions you have made using your ATM (Automated Teller Machine) card. Actually in the world of chat acronyms, it means “Parent Over Shoulder” referring to the parent of the user who happens to be looking over the shoulder of the user sitting in front of the PC to see what’s going on. A subtle means by the user to inform the other party to be on the alert and not to communicate anything that should not be said given that the user’s parent is standing behind him/her keeping watch.

Chat acronyms are combinations of letters and numbers that stand for certain words or phrases. For example, BTW means “by the way” and G2G means “Gotta go.”

Using chat acronyms makes typing messages easier and more efficient since commonly used phrases can be abbreviated using only a few characters. With the amount of communication people do today using their computer keyboard, using acronyms can save a significant amount of typing, as well as time.

Some common acronyms you may have seen are:
ASL = Age, sex, location
BRB = Be right back
G2P = Gone to pee
LOL = Laugh out loud
MOS = Mom over shoulder
PHAT = Pretty hot and tempting
POS = Parent over shoulder
XOXO = Hugs and kisses
🙂 means Happy
😦 means Sad

There is even a rating for each acronym from 1 to 3. A rating of 1 means that the acronym is rarely used, while a rating of 3 means that the acronym is commonly used.

Hopefully, this will help you to understand what the sender or others are conversing in the world of abbreviated communication…especially if you have children as parents may need to be in sync of what’s going on.
