Acronym or abbreviation? TBH IDK
On my course this weekend I learnt some new acronyms:
SPAM – Specially Processed Animal Meat (although some would argue that it stands for Shoulder of Pork and Ham – either way its gross)
SCUBA – Self Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus
We have some choice acronyms (or abbreviations) in the office used quite often: FFS, WTF, FML and Mollie is gonna hate this post because its full of CAPITAL LETTERS.
I didn’t know that GIF stood for Graphic Interchange Format, did you?
I once asked my daughter to do something and her response was CBA – I had to google it LOL
One of my favourites is EBITDA – Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation and Amortization. Only because when it first came out other Managers would keep saying it to sound clever – it’s not.
Did you know that YAHOO stands for Yet Another Hierarchical Official Oracle? Nor me.
IKEA – Ingvar Kamprad Elmtaryd Agunnaryd (WTF?)
We are just so used to using them now rather than sounding out the full sentence that they are common everyday speak: ATM, TBF, FYI, OMG etc.
ASAP Rocky would not be half as cool if he was known as As Soon As Possible Rocky – it doesn’t make sense does it?
We are just a bit lazy and when texting using acronyms or abbreviations is so much easier. Anyway have a GD WK peeps.
