Slang Gang Word of the Day



December 1: airplane mode

When someone cuts themselves off from the world by not logging on to Facebook or checking their cell phones. Usually occurs after a breakup or a rough work week.

Derived from the cell phone setting of the same name in which incoming messages or phone calls cannot be received.

"Dan won't answer your calls. He's in airplane mode."

"Sarah went into airplane mode for three days after Charlie dumped her."


**Is it just me or is everyone kind of in airplane mode in the blogosphere and FB world? I totally relate**

Yes. It's cuz we are all getting out our stupid Christmas crap and our kids are bugging us to do stuff with them. Not to mention Christmas cards and neighbor gifts and shopping. Oh hell, I better go, I have so much to do.

I think facebook has put everyone on thier own type of airplane mode. the quirks are worse then the perks.

I wish my home phone had an airplane mode. I'd leave it there for good.
