Human resources TikToker says she can tell when top performers will quit
A woman has gone viral on TikTok after admitting to finally realising why we abbreviate the adverbs “1st”, “2nd” and so on, the way we do.
In a TikTok video, the 32-year-old made the admission that she was previously unaware of why the words first, second and such are abbreviated with specific letters depending on how the full words are spelt.
In the clip, Gemma Lou posted a video of her laughing, while text overlay on the clip explained: “At my big age of 32 I have just learnt that the ‘st’ in 1st, ‘nd’ in 2nd and ‘rd’ in 3rd are because they are the last letters of the words ‘first’ and so forth.”
The clip has been viewed more than 2.7 million times and, judging by the more than 2,600 comments from other users, it seems Gemma Lou was not the only person to have recently learned that information.
