sorry to be a party pooper but i hate all the codewords as i call them.
It always takes me longer to read something because i sit there trying to figure out what is what for ages. Even with the list i reckon i will still have trouble. LOL.
Maybe I'm just stupid. :wink:

You are not alone, it took me probably 6 months to understand what all of abbreviations meant. Maybe you could print it up and stick it to your monitor. TBH (to be honest) it does make typing and reading much easier when I use these abbreviations. I sometimes have a LO (loved one) sitting on me and using abbrev. is just faster.

I suppose LO can be either Loved One or Little One, same as DH can be dear husband or dick head :smt044

I thought DB meant Darling Boy or Baby.
Oh well, it does in my family. That's what my AP (Aged Parent - father) calls my son and I'm known as DC (Darling Child), my AP's partner is AG (Assistant Gardener) and my SF is HD (Hairy Dude - he has a big beard) My DH's initials are DC so we are now known in my family as DC2.
So DC2=MC (my son's initials) :? :roll:

I don't know - do you remember where you read them? Maybe a link and we could work it out. OMG is oh my god, but Z? don't know that one! :roll: I'm one who doesn't find the abbreviations easier! :roll:

I would guess OH = Other Half?? but all depends on the context.
DC#1 - 8 years - "Mr T"
DC#2 - 4 years - "The K-meister"

Live every day to its fullest; give, love and laugh; for you will never know what tomorrow may bring.
