What does BRBS stand for?

Be right back soon

If someone steps away from their keyboard for a little while, they might use the acronym BRBS, which stands for “be right back soon.” This term is a quick way to let others know they’ll be back as fast as they can, probably after dealing with something in real life (IRL).

Interestingly, BRBS isn’t used as often as similar acronyms like BRB (be right back) or BBS (be back soon). This is because it’s a bit of an overkill, as “right back” and “soon” pretty much mean the same thing. Plus, it’s longer than its counterparts.

So, if you ever get a message saying BRBS, just know that the sender is trying to emphasize that they’ll be back in a very short time. Hopefully, they’ll be back before you even finish reading this explanation!
