1. What does ADIP stand for?

Another day in paradise

ADIP is a sarcastic way to reflect on your circumstances as desirable when they are actually undesirable. It stands for "another day in paradise," which is meant to jokingly describe circumstances like working in a cubicle or at a customer service desk as paradise.

Who uses ADIP?

The people that use ADIP are typically texting or posting online about how they hate their job or are just really unsatisfied with it at that moment. They may be fed up with an overbearing boss, gossip among co-workers, or really dislike what they do.

People may use ADIP in other circumstances besides work, as well. They may be stuck sitting in line at the DMV, arguing with an unhappy partner, or live in Minnesota when winter goes on for what seems like an eternity (winternity).

Be judicious when you use ADIP in texts or online. Some people struggle to understand sarcasm, especially digitally, and may totally misunderstand your use of ADIP as seriousness.
