What is plz short for?


When you're in a hurry but still want to mind your Ps & Qs, you can use plz in place of "please." (Similarly, you can use thx in place of "thanks.")

However, plz is a fairly informal abbreviation, so you should use it only among friends and family. For example, it may be inappropriate to ask your boss if you can "plz have the day off I'm rly sry I'll work extra later this week I promise."
