What does DWISNWID stand for?

Do what I say, not what I do

DWISNWID stands for “Do What I Say, Not What I Do”. It’s a phrase often used by someone who is doing something they’ve advised you against. Imagine a person who’s acting in a way that’s not quite right, but they’re telling you to act differently. That’s when they’re using DWISNWID.

Let’s say you’re in a conversation with your mom. She’s playing Fortnite, but she’s telling you to get off the game and go to bed. You could say, “But Mom, you’re still playing too!” That’s when she might respond with DWISNWID.

But remember, DWISNWID isn’t a common term. It’s kind of complicated, actually. So if you text or message someone with DWISNWID, they might not understand what you’re trying to say. It’s best to use this term with people who already know what it means.
