  1. Ok, I hate to think I am the only one trying to guess abreviations in this forum :sweatdrop:. So I hope I am not the only one. Just couple months ago, when I joined this forum, I picked up a few abreviations that I don't normally use in AIM. Now I know SA=sales associate, TIA=thanks in advance, IMO=in my opinion, TDF=to die for ... funny how creative we are in shorten these common words into letters. But there are still so many abreviations I see daily, and still couldn't figure what they mean :s.

    Can everyone please post all abreviations that you use and give me the meaning of them? (skip the 4 above).. for example, I am dying to know what "KWIM" stands for (many times I thought someone just mispelled the word "swim" :lol:) LOL.

    **MODS, please move this thread if I posted in wrong place*** Thanks guys! :tup:
  2. I know... it took me awhile to get use to all of the abbreviations/acronyms as well....

    KWIM = know what I mean

    LOL = laugh out loud

    DH = darling/dear husband
    DB = darling/dear boyfriend
    DD = darling/dear daughter

    There's a thread that has a lot of the acronyms already if you do a search....
  3. Thanks peace43! I didn't know there's a thread of acronyms already... will try to search it now :smile:

    KWIM? duh!! gosh, I can't believe I couldn't figured that one out... lol ... oh, yeah, add DH and LOL in my list as well. Weird after you learned and used them so often, they become part of your language.
  4. Yes I admit I've wondered about a few also cheweyvy:shame:
  5. You're not alone! I didn't know some of those too!
  6. SIL - Sister in law
    BIL - brother in law
