Top 10 Words That Shouldn't be Shortened

As a lazy person, I don't think there's anything wrong with using shortcuts when it comes to typing words. However, there are some of these that sound ridiculous outside the internet and text messages. Here are ten shortened words that shouldn't be used in your daily basis.

Note: I'm not saying you must avoid using these, but these are just some shortened words I wouldn't consider using if I were you.
The Top Ten
1 Assignment (Ass)

A teacher of mine told me that when she asked her class to pass their papers, a student of hers from that time passed a paper that said: "Sorry, miss, I forgot to bring my ass today." How would you forget to bring your ass?

Someone shorted the name of our assembly hall at school, so now it's just called ass hall.

I can actually imagine someone saying this and then realising how bad it sounds.

2 Baby/Babe (Bae)

It just sounds weird. What does bae even mean? I'm not sure if it has the same meaning as babe and baby

Supposedly this is short for Before Anyone Else.

Looks and sounds dumb

3 Jealous (Jelly)

When most people hear 'jelly' they think of the spread that goes with peanut butter. And, the word 'jelly' has the same amount of syllables as 'jealous' anyway, and the number of letters doesn't change much, so why shorten it?

Both sound tasty (call me weird) but the word jealous should stay

4 Random (Rando)

This is laziness at its finest. It doesn't really change much. It still has two syllables and only one letter is removed.

5 Ridiculous (Ridic)

Saying that just makes you seem ridiculous.

Don't say this ever

6 Totally (Totes)

Totes? More like totem poles

Totes just sounds dumb.

7 Husband (Hubby)

Something about this word makes me want to rip my hair out.

Seriously. The syllables are just the same!

Sounds a bit childish

8 Vacation (Vacay)

It doesn't really sound as relaxing.

9 Awkward (Awks)

It just doesn't sound pleasant to me...

10 Suspicious (Sus)

Only time I use this is when playing a murder-mystery game online. Saying it in normal conversation would sound weird.

This is something I'd say.

I say this though.

The Contenders
11 Dictator (Dic)

At least this one is usually accurate.

Oh, God.
So, um... Kim Jong-Un's a dic. (Thanks for the addition by the way! )

12 Television (Telly)
13 Sister (Sissy)

If you say this you will also be saying goodbye to your epic games account

Love you sissy

14 Association (Ass)
