What does IAE stand for?

In any event

IAE is an acronym that stands for "In any event," which is another way to say "whatever the situation may be..." It is similar to the IAC acronym, but is not used as often.

The acronym is primarily used by older adults when texting or chatting online. It is especially useful when you want to communicate that you believe something or are going to do something no matter what kind of event takes place. Even if aliens invade the earth, you are still going to do or believe this thing.

For example, you could be so convinced that your GF is cheating on you that you are going to break up with her, IAE. Or you may be so tired that you are going to bed right when you get home, IAE.


IAE, I still think you should apologize to her
