YWTC (Youth Worker Texting Codes)

March 18th, 2011

youth ministry text messageMy friend Jonathan McKee posted something on his blog called, Senior Citizen Short codes, which are totally hilarious. Here's a sample:

  • BYOT: Bring Your Own Teeth
  • GHA: Got Heartburn Again
  • ROFL… CGU: Rolling On The Floor Laughing…Can't Get Up
  • WTP: Where's The Prunes?

See the rest here

But that made me start to think about the texts I exchange with my youth worker friends. Maybe we need our own code words?

Some suggestions:

  • AFNP – Ask forgiveness not permission
  • AWOL – Missing Senior Pastors kid
  • AWOLA – Missing Senior Pastors kid again
  • AWOLAIDC -Missing Senior Pastors kid again I don't care
  • BFF – Been Fundraising forever
  • BRB – Brought wrong Bible
  • BTW – By the weekend
  • CUL8R – Clean-up later
  • FML – Found missing leader
  • LMAO – Loving my “awesome” office
  • GTG – Glory to God!
  • LOL – Lost leader
  • MD – Missionary dating
  • MSSF – Middle Schooler Smells Funky
  • NFBF – Not funny but funny
  • NBUP – Need back-up plan
  • OMG – Outrageously messy game
  • PUPZ – Pick-up pizza
  • SMH – So many hormones
  • SOL – Sanctuary off limits
  • SPOS – Senior Pastor over shoulder
  • TMI – That's mildly inappropriate
  • TTYL – Talk to your leader
  • WTF – Where's the fire?

What are we missing?
