What does BASOR stand for in chat and text messages?

Breathing a sigh of relief

Someone who sends you BASOR is "breathing a sigh of relief." You're most likely to receive this acronym in messages from your friends, family, or co-workers, when either you or they avoided a bad situation.

For example, if your BFF told you they might get fired, and they actually got a raise instead, they might text you "BASOR - not fired; got a raise!"


Got home safely!
Whew, BASOR. Glad to see you, but that's a heck of a drive

TMW you're BASOR
