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)

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

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.

I forgot to bring my ass, LOL

2 Baby/Babe (Bae)

Supposedly this is short for Before Anyone Else. - Powell

Bae actually means Before Anyone Else. - RoseWeasley

Looks and sounds dumb - blackflower

Was 'babe' too long? - Misfire

3 Jealous (Jelly)

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

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

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? - Misfire

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. - Misfire

Very lazy - darthvadern

It’s just one letter removed - sadical

5 Totally (Totes)

Sounds stupid. - Luckys

Totes? More like totem poles - darthvadern

Totes just sounds dumb. - MattAffterburner

No. Just no. - Misfire

6 Husband (Hubby)

Sounds a bit childish

Seriously. The syllables are just the same!

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

Hubby is a cringy word.

7 Ridiculous (Ridic)

Saying that just makes you seem ridiculous. - Misfire

Don’t say this ever - sadical

8 Vacation (Vacay)

It doesn't really sound as relaxing. - Misfire

9 Awkward (Awks)

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

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

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

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

10 Suspicious (Sus)

This is something I'd say. - Luckys

I say this though. - MattAffterburner

Susp is better - darthvadern

It just... sounds bad. - Misfire

The Contenders

11 Television (Telly)

I bet a 5 year old made this one up. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

12 Dictator (Dic)

This one's pretty factual, to be honest. - NickelodeonYesAddminNo

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

Hitler was a dic(k) - RoseWeasley

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

13 Sister (Sissy)

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

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

Love you sissy - Luckys

14 Association (Ass)
