I was reading through an online forum today and it just struck me all of a sudden how many acronyms (and initialisations) there are floating around the internet. There are all sorts, I notice more and more every day. It is difficult to keep up sometimes! I have even found myself frantically googling the latest one to find out what it means rather than risk the ridicule of not knowing! God forbid you don't know what YOLO or BBG mean or some other completely unnecessary acronym! I blame the youngsters! Are they too lazy to type a proper word? Don't they have time for proper sentences? I'm sure they would if they got off Facebook, stepped away from the XBOX or stopped watching TOWIE! I find these things incredibly annoying. As much as I don't particularly like this abbreviation culture, I do find myself occassionally doing it myself! Ok, so I don't use WTF or LOL but the terms OH, LO, SAHM and DD have definitely made it into my online vocabulary! What do you think of these abbreviations? Are some ok, or do you find all of it infuriating?
Seriously though, who makes up these things? Surely there could be more useful initialisations than WTF or YOLO? I mean, they are a bit pointless aren't they? As silly as they are, I have a feeling they are here to stay! So, as a bit of fun I've decided to make up my own! Surely they can't be any worse that the ones already floating about? Read on and you can decide!
MINOA - Mummy in need of alcohol
MINOW - Mummy in need of wine/whisky
MINOV - Mummy in need of Vodka
with all of the above the letter M could be replaced with a P (parent) or D (daddy) as required.
(M)BOB - (mummy's) Battery operated boyfriend for those times you fancy sneaking off for some "me" time.
FSYI - F***sake you idiot (great for not swearing in front of the kiddies!)
FM - F***ing moron (as above)
BOOMM or BOOMFM - Bored out of my (f***ing) mind (as you are when surrounded by tinies sometimes)
LLS/FLS - Look like sh**/ Feel like sh** (a common parenting side effect)
TLTC/TTTC - Too lazy to clean/Too tired to clean
ADIDAS - All day I dream about shoes
ADIDAC - All day I dream about chocolate
WISW - What is she wearing
What do you think? How bad are they? Would you use any of these? Got any better, funnier or silly ones? I'd love to read them!!
