What does LBS Mean in Texting?

LBS is an acronym for “laughing but serious”. It is a commonly used phrase when texting, and younger generations replaced it with a nifty acronym. You use it when someone tells a story of something bad happening to them, but at the same time, it is quite funny. Or when someone is making you mad but they are funny simultaneously. Now you know that you can simply throw out an LBS in those situations!

Alternative Meanings

It can also mean a few other things, but it would be rare to see them used this way…

  • Let’s be serious
  • Little bitches
  • Little bastards
