Do you get annoyed by people who say 'lol' at everything?

Why do people feel the need to add LOL to the end of every sentence?
Why are more and more people persistently using this pointless 'expression'.

If trying to get people to read laughter within a sentence, they should read laughter, not this idiotic abbreviation for an stupid phrase.

If writing something that's meant to be funny; people can decide whether
or not it was funny for themselves, without a self-obsessed idiot phrase.

If reading something funny, then laugh; do they REALLY need to type 'lol' after it? Am I the only one who finds it stupid??

The 'term', useless as it was anyway, has now lost any meaning...
"I got drunk the other night lol"
"[Name] is very bored lol"

WHY?! Why is that funny?! - Get a grip!

ANSWER #7 of 21

you should definitely be an english major. that sort of thing drives us crazy.

on the other hand, I can see why people use the "lol" compulsively. it's hard to convey emotion (especially if you don't have the greatest vocabulary) through texts. adding something like "lol" conveys that.

ANSWER #13 of 21

I say 'lol' when ever I think things are funny (either that or haha) but that's only if it amuses me. But if it REALLY makes me laugh out loud then I type 'hahahaha' or 'lmao' or 'lol lol'. But it does annoy me when someone (like my friend) says 'lol' in EVERY text. for example::
me: heyy!!
friend: hey lol!
me: whats up?
friend: just sitting here bored lol. you?
me: watching tv, bored as crap! lol
friend: lol
me: hey, we are going to the lake later, want to come?
friend: let me ask my mom lol
me: tell her I said pretty please and that I love her!!! lol
friend: lol I will lol
me: did you ask yet?
friend: yupp lol
me: ...and??
friend: lol she said yeahh lol
me: yay! lol
friend: lol
me: bring you swim suit
friend: lol okayy
friend: lol
me: okayy thats enough with the lol's, lol
friend: lol okayy
me: thanks
friend: lol
me: im for real, stop.
friend: lol I will lol
me: I mean now
friend: I am lol
me: then do it
friend: oakyy! lol
me: see there you go again
friend: lol
me: I mean it
friend: lol
me: stop
friend: lol
me: stop
friend: lol
me: damnit! STOP!!
friend: lol okayy lol
~then I don't text back, I just get annoyed and don't bother with her anymore~
okayy sorry..kind of carried away with that... but you get my point.
I don't know how, but when ever I read "lol" I mentally think in my (not on purpose though) head that that person is laughing, like as if im talking to them in real life. I didnt relize this till the other day but It gets annoying as crap when you say it EVERYtime.

ANSWER #17 of 21

well now its just something most kids see as "cool" to add to the end of there sentance
it has lost almost all meaning now
much the same with other stupid slang words
its also mainly for the other person to notice that what was said was a joke or soemthing similar
but mainly its just something "cool" they all want to chick in at the end of there sentance

ANSWER #18 of 21

Nooo way lo0ol...I'm used to do add Lol in some of ma sentences, as a meaning of laugh but not necessarily Out Loud loool ..
Because when you write, it's difficult to convey your emotional expression as what some of you said, therefore the other can understand that I'm jokin, or smiling by simply writing this 3 letters :) ..

ANSWER #19 of 21

that lol stuff drives me nuts. I thought a girl liked me becauls in a note that she sent me it said that stupid "LOL" and I Thought that meant "Lot's of love". That and ROFL and ROFL-ing. People saying it drives me nuts too, because I'm not a text-messager (I TALK on the PHONE or in PERSON to PEOPLE) and I have to take a minute and think "Gee, l...o...l... Oh Yeah! Laugh Out Loud!

ANSWER #20 of 21
