What does BLTN stand for?

Better late than never

When you see BLTN in a text or an online message, it’s an acronym for “better late than never.” It’s a way to say that although being late isn’t the best, it’s still better than not showing up at all.

Often, a person who is late to an event will use BLTN to make light of their tardiness. It’s a quick and easy way to excuse yourself for being a little behind schedule.

However, it’s always better to be on time if possible. Using BLTN might save you from a scolding, but it’s not a get-out-of-jail-free card for always being late.
