Have you ever really want something so bad, and then you see a friend (or worse, a frenemy) who has it and you’re all, “OMG, that’s really cool!” on the outside, even though on the inside you’re all, “OMG! WTF?!”

If so, you already understand what the slang word everyone seems to be using in memes these days means — i.e., what it's like to feel "salty."

Yes, salty, just like the taste of that bitter condiment you shake on your food and the tears you're crying as you feel oh-so-self-righteously-sorry for yourself.

Honestly, I had no idea the word was being used this way until recently. which I suppose means I’m getting old and therefore more and more salty by the day myself.

But while you may think of this as a modern term, the origins of it's being used to mean angry or irritated date all the way back to 1938 — and in a way, it can be traced back even further to the 1920s, when sailors started using it to mean tough and aggressive.

Of course, anything that’s trendy these days seems to automatically turns into a meme.
