What does AWTY stand for in messages?

Are we there yet

Impatient people use AWTY to stand for "are we there yet." You're most likely to encounter this acronym in online chat, when the person you're chatting with is (irritably) waiting for something to happen.

More rarely, you may encounter AWTY in text messages, sent by people who are wondering whether you have accomplished something or arrived somewhere yet. If you're not currently driving, you may want to give that person an update on your progress.
