What does Bitmt stand for?

But in the meantime

When you’re killing time and want to explain your interim actions, you may use the slang term bitmt, which stands for “but in the meantime”. This handy acronym is used to describe something you or someone else will be doing while waiting for another event to happen.

For instance, suppose you are having a chat with your dad and he says, “I won’t be able to fix the bike until the weekend. bitmt, can you keep the garage clean?” He is essentially asking you to maintain the cleanliness of the garage while he waits for the weekend to fix the bike.

The term bitmt is usually seen in casual text conversations between friends or family members. However, it’s not unheard of for a supervisor or colleague to use it in a professional setting to assign a task while waiting for another event.

Sorry, I’m still at work. Bitmt, we can hang out after I finish.

No worries! Take your time. Just let me know when you’re done.

Will do! Bitmt, I’ll text you once I’m off work.
