What does WEU stand for?

What’s eating you?

Ever been in a situation where you’re feeling down and someone messages you with ‘WEU’? They’re not just typing random letters. WEU is an acronym which stands for ‘What’s Eating You’.

The slang term is typically used when the person you’re chatting with notices something is off with you. They’re basically asking what’s causing your mood to drop or what’s bothering you.

In this context, the word ‘eating’ doesn’t have anything to do with food. Rather, it’s used to mean something that’s upsetting or annoying you. If a problem is ‘eating you’, it means it’s constantly on your mind, gnawing at your happiness and causing visible frustration.

So, next time someone hits you with a ‘WEU’, they’re not asking about your lunch plans. They’re showing concern and encouraging you to share what’s on your mind.
