Do you say S-A-S or Sass?


When referring to our beloved message board, do you say (or think) S-A-S as an initialism (individual letters spelled out) or do you pronounce it as a word, Sass. I think of it as Sass.

Sass. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯


EDIT: Granted, I also call the WHO "Who" and the GOP "Gop." And when I read "LOL" I hear "loll" in my head.

If I don't reply to you, it's NOTHING PERSONAL. It's my ANXIETY.

I do the "loll" thing too. When I'm typing lol or LOL I'm totally thinking loll never L-O-L. It's to the point that my brain basically accepts "loll" to be an interchangeable substitute for actually laughing out loud. Though sometimes I do actually laugh when I type lol, more often than not that gets represented as LOL.

And to close my case for loll, may I present lollerskates:

S-A-S (social anxiety sucks )

Even if our scars don’t match there’s no wrong you can’t make better if you can figure out a way to change your mind.

And sure there’s things I regret not doing or doing. Those thoughts climb my spine like spiders, and then I’m really the stranger in my own bed,

and that ball of nervous gets pushed into every crack. That’s what’s holding the bricks together.

"Sass" probably due to seeing MM75's "SASsy" comments

S.A.S, but sometimes if I know someone thinks/says it as “Sass,” it can change.

I thought people just did that generally, lol. It just seems natural.

One that always confused me was "lmao", I used to read it "lamo" (dyslexia?), but then I heard people saying "lemaw" which sounds better.

I like to rearrange the letters A-S-S <a href="http://www.socialanxietysupport.com/forum/images/smilies/12.gif" border="0" alt="" title="" >:-)</a> (jk)






And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death
Out, out, brief candle! Life's but a walking shadow,

I usually just think "Social Anxiety Support" in my head, and type SAS on the board. It is the same way for a lot of acronyms used to replace common words. When I see LOL, I usually think laughing out loud, or SMH I think shaking my head.

I doubt I've ever said it out loud but in my mind, it is just SAS. That's how I spell it if I write it for some reason.
