If YOLO could just drop off of the face of the earth, I would be so happy.

Overuse of "le [noun]" is starting to drive me crazy, too. Maybe I should stop reading rage comics. :P

Too Long, Didn't Read. Usually used to sum up a long story, i.e.:  Blah blah blah blahsdfsdfsdjfvisdfgbaisdfguisdouvdifu

TL;DR: Blah.
My inner (r-word) is having a field day with this one.

Try living in Yolo County: it was very confusing at first.

What is FML and amaze-ball?

I hate "a hot mess." Particularly when used by anyone over the age of 12, and said with a snarky little semi twist/flip of the head, and a rather pointed glare, and the mouth being partially open.  Must have self-important attitute to accompany this act.

Why no, the evil person I worked with did not do any of this. Never.  >:D

I've never knitted anything I could recognize when it was finished.  Actually, I've never finished anything, much to my family's relief.

Duck face...why in the world is this even a thing and how is it supposed to be attractive? When I was a kid doing a duck face meant putting two pringles in your mouth so it looked like a beak.

I had to laugh once though to see a video spoofing Nickelback's "Photograph" where they're making fun of people who take silly photos with instagram.

In the same room where I poop!"

TL;DR: Blah.

I once saw it as a reply to someone's long post. As in

OP: Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah-bitty blah

First response (by different poster): TL;DR

I thought it was breathtakingly rude. If you don't want to read a long post, fine, but no need to share.

I'm normally fairly tolerant of sayings, but YOLO drives me nuts simply because it is so misused.

"*******" yes, I still hear it used, unfortunately.  Not often, but once a year is still too often.
