1. What does POS stand for?

Piece of s***


When someone is fed up with something, they might call that thing a POS. Most often, people use this crass acronym to compare someone else (who they dislike) to a portion of poo.

While using POS instead of the phrase "piece of s***" technically avoids swearing, it still isn't very nice. So if you're ever tempted to use this acronym yourself, you should probably reconsider.

4. What does POS stand for?

Power of suggestion

Influencers and creepers may use POS to stand for "power of suggestion." Those who believe in the power of suggestion believe their suggestions can influence others' actions. And in many cases, the suggesters are right.

For example, suppose you were told you were hungry, and that a delicious ice cream sundae would really hit the spot. You might begin to imagine how the sundae's fudge melts and blends with its ice cream, and how sweet the combination tastes.

If you now want an ice cream sundae, you are vulnerable to the POS - as are most people.
