Default What are you trying to say???

Does anyone else out there have problems with abreiviations???
Consider this ...it may be quicker for you guys to type like that, but it sometimes take me a while to work out what you are trying to say!!!
So help me out can we list a few of the abreiviations and what they mean ...please

(blond... but not affraid to admit sometimes in the morning the brain cells are a bit slow waking up!!! I just put coffee in the puppys food bowl!!!)

I only really the use/can think of the following:

IM(H)O - In My (Honest) Opinion
OH - Other half
PMSL - Pissed Myself Laughing
LOL - Lots of Laughing/Laughter
WTF - What The [email protected]@k
JAFA - Just Another F'in Aucklander
ROFL - Rolling/ed On Floor Laughing

Is this what you mean? Hope it has been of some help if so. Carmen.

Could be "Dear Partner", website I used to belong to had something similar with DH - Dear Husband
DS - Dear Son
you get the idea!

When I use IMHO - the H stands for humble

Default Re: What are you trying to say???

I use IMHO as 'in my humble opinion'.

And yes, Dp, dh, dw, ds, ds1, dd2 etc have long been 'forum speak' for dear partner, dear husband, dear daughter, dear son etc (with numbers denoting eldest, youngest, or first husband, 2nd wife etc.).

TBH is 'to be honest'.
