What does JWU stand for in text and chat messages?

Just woke up

Sleepyheads might use JWU to stand for "just woke up." You're most likely to receive this acronym in a text or chat message, sent by a friend who recently re-joined the ranks of the awake.

For example, if you've been repeatedly calling and texting your BF, they might respond with "Sorry I missed your calls. JWU." This means your boyfriend wasn't deliberately avoiding you; he was just asleep.


Heyyyy, we were supposed to meet at 6 am, right?
OMG, I'm so sorry. JWU. I'm OMW now!
