Based on conversation skills recommended in Crucial Conversations, "MuReMuPu" is an abbreviation for Mutual Respect & Mutual Purpose. If you are in a conversation that seems to be moving toward conflict or is otherwise becoming emotionally charged, one of the best ways to move forward productively is to reestablish Mutual Respect & Mutual Purpose. One of the easiest ways to do that is to start a response to someone's emotional reaction with a reference to your desire to "reestablish MuReMuPu."

"Damn, man, you've made us 45 minutes late! You ain't got no respect for our time!"

"Bro, MuReMuPu. I'm sorry I'm late. I do respect your time. What can I do to make it up to you? I met a sweet chick at the store who invited us to her party tonight - wanna check that out?"

OR - in SMS:
"OMW, running late."

"WTF?"
"MuReMuPu. Will make it up to you."
