Don’t think so
When you don’t agree with the view or the idea of the person you are talking to, simply use “DTS” to put your point across. You can also use it to decline a plan or an offer that someone’s making.
Here’s how you do it:
- Friend: “I think Amber Heard has some truth in her statements.”
- You: “Dts. She couldn’t back up what she claimed.”
- Friend: “Let’s all hang out at Sara’s today.”
- You: “Dts. Gotta do my homework.”
Down the shore
Using “dts” to mean “down the shore” would mostly work if you stay close to the beaches or are currently on vacation by the sea.
So, whether you like to invite people to the beach or let them know that you are there, here’s what you say:
- Friend: “Hey, what are you doing? Wanna catch up?”
- You: “Dts. Come down, and let’s hang out.”
Down to snuggle
Are you in the mood for some romantic gesture? Or, maybe your special someone is feeling extra cuddly today. “Dts” is what you use to let the other person know that you are ready for some cozy snuggles.
Let’s take a look at how you can use it:
- Girlfriend: “Hey babe, are you dts after work? I’ll be in my room.“
- You: “Yes! Coming right up.“
- You: “Had a long day. So dts right now with you! You up?”
Down The Sun
Yes, they can also mean the Nu-metal band from Kansas City. In this case, you will have to understand the context to know what they mean. Are you a hardcore music lover? Maybe your friends are simply suggesting you check out the band.
- Friend: “Hey, I was listening to dts last night. The beat is crazy!”
- You: “Send over the links. Lemme check it out.”
Expect them to send over links to songs like ‘We all Die’ or ‘Pure American Filth’!
Dragon Tooth Sword
If all your interactions are mostly focused on online games, especially Deus Ex 50, you would know the value of a “Dragon Tooth Sword”. With a base damage of twenty, this “dts” is a powerful weapon for gamers.
So, if your friend goes, “can’t get over how cool using dts is, man!,” you would understand what they mean.
