Abbreviations

Recommended Posts

I thought i'd start a list of abbreviations, most of us use them and I know how grateful I was for a list when I first started posting on forums a few years ago. Any suggestions please post them below and i'll add them to this post so they're altogether.

 

Some are general and others are knitty

GOM - Grumpy Old Man (this was a new one on me when I started here :lol: )

 

And there was me thinking it was God O'Mighty .. Least that's what my bf likes to think he is sometimes :lol:

(ok ok I know it's almighty ^^)

 

New to forums myself, but not to chat rooms, so I just took a random guess as most of the abbv's using what was previous and after in posts, only one I hadn't sussed was GOM haha! :lol:
