    Explain why people say OMG and LOL in person!

    We used OMG and LOL on the internet because it was a quicker method than typing "Oh My God" and "Laugh Out Loud!". Why are people actually saying it?

    My guess is some self-induced Orwellian version of Newspeak...I would also point to a deplorable education system and the fact that Saturday morning cartoons have a broader vocabulary than the average conversation between college graduate. Just read "The Dumbest Generation."

    They might just be too used to it that it's become part of their everyday conversations.

    Because they are too scared to curse.  Or maybe because most people are so entertained with our instant gratification culture that they don't have the ability or time to speak the whole phrase.
