Texting jargon?
 
Okay, I'll admit that I'm not hip with all the new texting words and phrases. I do know and understand some, like wth, idk, and jk. I have a video on youtube where someone used "ffs" in a comment. I'm not too sure if it was a typo or it really stood for something. I also don't know if they were being sarcastic or trying to be degrading. The only thing I could come up with was Flipping Freak Show or similar to that.:lol: The actual comment was "and ffs youve got hair longer than her tail". I think the video may have pissed them off from the rest of their comment I left out.

Anyway, any thoughts on it?

The first thing I thought of was..."for f&*ks sake". It seems to make sense in context of the sentence you mentioned, but I don't really know for sure.

ffs does stand for For F**ks sake
I'm a lazy 16yo so I actually use predictive if I'm texting, and I type properly on the computer (Can't stand people who shorten EVERYTHING) but I can understand most of the jargon, seeing as my friends use just about all of it.

-One I got confused about was "ikr" I later found out it means "I know right"

Okay, that makes sense. It's not that I hadn't heard that before but it's not a phrase I use. So, I guess that would be why I wouldn't think of it. Thanks
