What does YSW stand for?

Yeah sure whatever

Someone who sends you YSW (yeah sure whatever) disagrees with you or does not care about the topic you're discussing. While the first two words of this acronym sound quite positive, that final "whatever" lends it its distinctive dismissive connotation.

At times, it can be difficult to distinguish between YSW's two implicit meanings. However, there's a big difference between "I disagree with you, but whatever" and "I don't care, so whatever." Hopefully, context will tell you whether the person who sent you YSW disagrees with your opinion or simply does not have one of their own.

When you just don't care anymore
