People use YWA as a gesture of help to people. The idea was to provide information about something that another person wants to know due to your knowledge about it. So just to be politer, you add the YWA, in the end, to not sound pompous.

However, a lot of times it is also used to snap at people. When you want to show off your skills or the new dress brand you’ve been shopping, people end up using this slang that often leads to major misunderstandings and fights.

This abbreviation is also prone to a lot of unexpected responses. Some people can actually understand that the other person is really just trying to help and would receive it in a good way. But for some, it might come up as an insult, and they can lash out at you which can also end a good relationship.

For some, it can become a great way to respond to someone when they are talking for the very first time. In this case, the person just takes it courteously.

Therefore, it is critical to understand where and how you are using the abbreviation.


Example 1

Person 1: Listen, I knew you would ditch on me last minute, so I already covered your homework assignment and coffee. YWA!

Person 2: Awww!! You are BAE!

Example 2

Person 1: Had it not been for my presence of mind, you would have got us flunked! YWA!


Person 2: That is, had you let me talked, you wouldn’t have given out wrong info! We have flunked anyway!
