An offshoot of the popular "lol" acronym, ILOLAW
stands for "inappropriately laughing
out loud at work." It is used to describe situations where something done, said, or witnessed
causes you to laugh
out loud so intensely
while at your place of occupation that others take notice. Reactions from coworkers
or bosses to an ILOLAW
can be positive or negative.
The first "L" in ILOLAW
can also mean "laughs," "laughed," or "laugh
" depending on how ILOLAW
is used in a sentence.
