What does COL stand for?

Crying out loud

Someone who is sad may use COL to express their grief. It is similar to LOL but used when someone is bummed out rather than happy.

You will most likely see COL in texts or online messages used by people trying to cope with troubling feelings. They may have just been dumped, gotten fired, lost their phone, flunked a test, or crashed their car. Who knows. There are an endless amount of things to be sad about. The best way to respond is with "SAT. LMK how I can help."


I was COL when I watched that movie last night. The ending was so sad!
