    Nah it doesn't really annoy me tbh. It maybe would if all they ever said was abbreviations but the odd little 'lol' in person wouldn't bother me. Most of the time though people I know only say 'lol' in sarcasm when something isn't really funny at all.

    Once I had a Skype with one TSRien.
    Suddenly he wrote brb and disappeared. I was seriously confused for half an hour. I'm not British myself, so I thought brb means barbarian.

    Some yes, some no.

    Saying "lol" instead of laughing - punishable by death.
    Saying "deoxyriboneucleic acid" instead of DNA - somewhat pretentious.

    If they do it occasionally, I don't mind, but if they use slang for almost every word, it really gets on my nerves

    As above.

    "Try this beer, its 5 percent ABV".

    vs

    "Try this beer, its 5 percent alcohol by volume".
