What does GBTTD stand for?

Got better things to do

If someone sends you a message saying ‘GBTTD’, it means they’ve “got better things to do.” Basically, they believe whatever you’re suggesting or talking about is not worth their time or effort.

‘GBTTD’ is often used to express disinterest in activities that you or others might find enjoyable, but they consider trivial or unimportant. It’s a polite way of saying, “sorry, but I have more important things to look after.”

Let’s take an example: suppose you’re trying to explain to your buddy, let’s call him Alex, about the benefits of signing up for multiple credit cards just for the free rewards. Alex might respond with ‘GBTTD than wasting time on that.’ In this scenario, Alex doesn’t see the value in your suggestion and believes he has more important things to do.

Remember, the slang ‘GBTTD’ is a light-hearted way of communicating that someone has more important or interesting things to do than whatever is being proposed. It’s not meant to be offensive, but rather a simple expression of differing priorities.
