What does YOYO stand for?

You're on your own

Someone who sends you the acronym YOYO is letting you know that "you're on your own." But don't worry - you've got this!

Alternatively, YOYO can be used to describe a) a foolish person or b) an actual yo-yo (you know, the spinning toy with the string). Context should tell you whether you're talking about abandonment, fools, or toys.
