Terry said this to K & I this past weekend.
T: "Why do people use LOL when they text or read something funny online? Are they really laughing out loud every time there is something funny they read? If they are that is fine, use LOL but lets say they are sitting at their desk and type LOL to someone, I am sure they are not sitting there just laughing out loud at a text.”
He then proceeds to laugh out loud in this obnoxiously loud laugh while pretending to have just read something funny.
T: “I like to say LQTMS. Which is laughing quietly to my self. Seems more appropriate most times.”
