So i wonder, how much or long is brb, bbs and bbl acutally means.
To me brb (be right back) is matter of minutes, maybe up to 10, 15 mintues.
While bbs (be back soon) is probably somewhere around 1 hour, maybe 2.
And bbl (be back later) would be "any time later the same day" (considering end of the day when going to sleep, not nap).
I personally tend to avoid just saying brb, bbs, bbl and either give reason for leaving or add predicted time i'll be gone beside.
