At a meeting yesterday, our new supervisor was asking questions to familarize herself wit our department process and as we were giving explanations, I found my self talking alphabet soup.
"In ****, you'll have PO's with *, ***, *, * while you'll also have *, *, **, ***, ** and *, not to mention there are frequent *, ** and **'s to deal with but in *** you won't have any of those as we'll deal with ***'s and other voucher's."
*** True acronymn concealed to protect da innocent alphabet
Get it? Got it? Good.
It threw a movie scene flashback from "Renaissance Man" wea Danny DeVito was asking driving directions from a Marine on base and was thrown every acronymn at him. Anybody remembah dat?
We now live in a world of acronyms and it is now no longah reserved for technical terms or special situations as it is now commonplace dat it's used in everyday langugage! Wat gets me is dat people no longah even say wat they mean any more as they just say da acronym in place of it. In fact you're probably from a different planet if you don't use 'em - or understand 'em - in texting or any social media out there.
*pun intended* lol
See wat I mean?
Da common ones of course:
lol = laughing out loud
LOL = laughing out loud... HARD
LMFAO = (extremely) laughing my F*'in A$$ off
omg = Oh my gosh (or God depending on da person)
OMG = OH MY GOSH!
btw = by the way
ttfn = ta ta for now
ttys = talk to you soon
xoxo = hugs and kisses
Wat do you use often? Do you use acronyms in your "everyday" conversations? Which ones do you find yourself using/saying all da time? Which ones do you find most irking? Go on and add to da list if you like cause you might find one you nevah saw/used before....... and you may be using 'em in no time flat...... but then again, you probably still have an 8-track player huh? j/k
