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?

Kiss my assignment.
I will kick your assignment.
That kid's about to get his assignment handed to him.

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)

Supposedly this is short for Before Anyone Else.

Bae actually means Before Anyone Else.

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

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

I like to say Jelly lol, it just sounds better.

Sounds like Jelly Beans

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.

It’s just one letter removed

I’m sorry, but I’m thinking of Randomator when I see this

5 Husband (Hubby)

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

Seriously. The syllables are just the same!

This one's pretty stupid, if you ask me.

Sounds a bit childish

6 Totally (Totes)

Totes? More like totem poles

Totes just sounds dumb.

Sounds stupid.

7 Ridiculous (Ridic)

Saying that just makes you seem ridiculous.

Don’t say this ever

8 Vacation (Vacay)

It doesn't really sound as relaxing.

9 Awkward (Awks)

What kind of word is this? It's super lazy and plain weird.

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

Don’t say this or I’ll delete your Fortnite account

AWKS! AWKS! Sounds like a bird's mating call.

10 Suspicious (Sus)

This is something I'd say.

I say this though.

Susp is better

It just... sounds bad.

The Contenders

11 Dictator (Dic)

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

This one's pretty factual, to be honest.

At least this one is usually accurate.

I mean most of them are dics to their people so..., I prefer the word dicktator though

12 Television (Telly)

I bet a 5 year old made this one up.

13 Sister (Sissy)

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

I imagine calling my sister this, she would flip out to me lol

I say this to my sister when she's annoying lol.

Love you sissy

14 Association (Ass)
