Grizzly_Granny’s Intensive Chat Room Etiquette Course. WTF? LOL!

In other news: Grizzly_Granny is worried. If it gets any better now I’m going to end up with no friends. I have to admit, I haven’t spoken too highly of my bingo companions throughout this blog, but at the end of the day they are the best thing I have and they know it.

But after finding out about the online bingo chat rooms, I can even make friends without leaving my armchair. I can sense a feeling of betrayal sneaking up on me.

At first this chatting thing seemed awfully stressful, and the chatters might as well have been chatting in ancient Greek for all I know. But after five minutes with Google I have already learned the basics of the chatting lingo. I copied some of the most common abbreviations, learned the do’s and don’ts, and compiled them below into what I would like to introduce as “Grizzly_Granny’s Intensive Chat Room Etiquette Course”:

Friendly

  • LOL: Laughing Out Loud.
  • ROFL: Rolling On the Floor Laughing.
  • GG: Good Game.
  • GL: Good Luck.
  • UL: Unlucky.
  • BRB: Be Right Back.

Not so friendly

  • WTF: What The Fuck.
  • FU: Fuck you.
  • RTFM: Read the fucking manual.

Too friendly?

  • TOY: Thinking of you.
  • GMILF: Best Left Unsaid.

Do’s

  • Keep it friendly, keep it real.
  • Chat in a way that would be appropriate in a face-to-face meeting.
  • Be friendly to newcomers and especially grandmas.

Don’ts

  • Giving out personal information like your credit card details.
  • Spamming (sending the same or different message over and over).
  • Abuse and profanities.

Most bingo rooms have bingo hosts to keep the action going. They are friendly and sometimes amusing. At e.g. Ladbrokes they have bingo hosts around the clock. So. GL!
