What does BYTM stand for?

Better you than me

Self-centered people use BYTM to mean "better you than me." Typically, people respond with this acronym after you share a troubling anecdote or assignment - which they're glad did not happen or get assigned to them.

BYTM is an unkind acronym, so you probably shouldn't use it. Instead, consider replying with TTB, IFYP, or GL when a friend, family member, or co-worker shares a distressing story.
