What Does DWBI Mean in a Text?

DWBI means "Don't Worry 'Bout It." The abbreviation DWBI is a variant of "Don't Worry About It." The meaning is the same as DWAI (Don't Worry About It) but is a more flippant response.

DWBI is more dismissive than DWAI so would be used as an abrupt way of letting someone know you're not really bothered or interested in whatever they've just said. If seeking to reassure someone who is anxious or worried, you would use DWAI, which shows more interest or concern.
