What does OOH stand for?

Out of here

When someone uses the slang term ‘OOH’, they’re basically saying they’re “out of here.” This term is commonly used when someone is about to leave a place or exit a conversation.

Think about it this way, you’re chatting with your colleague, let’s say Tom, on a messaging platform like Slack. If Tom is about to call it a day, he could send you a message saying, “I’m OOH, catch up tomorrow.” This means he’s wrapping up and leaving for the day.

Here’s another scenario. You and your partner are at a social gathering that’s not going too well. If your partner is ready to bail, they might subtly text you, “Let’s get OOH.” This is a discreet prompt for you both to start making your exit from the party.

Example for using ‘OOH’ in a conversation

Hey, are you still at the party?

Yeah, but it’s not really my scene. I wanna leave soon.

I feel the same way. Let’s get OOH! πŸ˜„

Absolutely! I can’t wait to be out of here. Meet you outside in 5?
