    I think Jim posted quite recently a list of used and useful abbreviations, can't find it though

    I had to google SWMBO the other day, kept seeing it decided I ought to know :Doh:

    Just in case I wasn't the last one here to know

    She Who Must Be Obeyed

    It is only obvious once you know

    Can anybody find Jims list for us please :thumb:

    At work our car park park had place labels using acronyms of our job titles.

    My Senior Operations Officer made me "a boy named SOO"!

    Better than my colleague :-

    Finance And Technical Services Officer. :Doh:

    Years ago,before patients in A&E had relatively easy access to their medical notes, and litigation became more prevalent there were some corkers of abbreviations, such as:-

    FLK - funny looking kid

    GOK - God only knows

    PFO - pi$$ed fell over

    PGT - pi$$ed got thumped

    one I heard of but not seen was NFN - normal for Norfolk :hardhat:

    and I will let you guess what Ash Cash was a describing
