Sure, I realize that there may be more important issues than this, but shit’s important to me. The other day at work, I sent an email with “obvs” like I do on HA sometimes. A coworker thought it was important to let me know that the proper abbreviation of obviously is “obvi.”
Now, I don’t want to besmirch my workmates, but that can’t possibly be right, can it? Maybe?
There are a few things that make me worry that I maaaaay be wrong. First, the spelling: “Obvi” clearly cuts off in a logical place. “Obvs” really doesn’t. Second, when my coworker told me it was “obvi” I could pronounce it correctly. It took me 3 times to pronounce “obvs” and it’s my word. Finally, I’m not sure where “obvs” came from. I feel like I’ve always just abbreviated it that way.
So in conclusion, why am I talking about this? Good night!
