    PPU is another...Porch Pick Up

    I just have to say y'all have had me in gleeful laughter after reading this entire thread!! I have to hand it to some folks, some of these acronyms are 'creative' to say the least!.. many are fairly common sense, but I did wonder myself about TV… and dang, I hire CDL drivers… how'd I miss that! LOL I've also seen PIA for Pain-in-A**, too… that was the name I used on the stabilizer jacks a few times until I WD40'd them to heck-n-gone! If anyone traveling to Maine/NH this season, feel free to message me… I'll be out there trying all kinds of new sites this season! happy trails! ~janie

    hmmmmm, plenty of new ones used here thanks for the help,
    DW + DH were hurting my brain, but I am in still in the dark about WNSOTWW
    But I will add my own few to the list for fun.

    YMMV= your mileage may vary. Intended as, you may get different results please don't count on mine as accurate.
    FWIW= for what it's worth..... usually not much
    411= give me the information please, 'can someone give me the 411 on acronyms here'
    "Eye D ten tea" error= write it down just as it sounds, it will become clear, usually relates to computers/electronics
    BFTO= Blinding Flash of the Obvious, had a few of those in my time, usually a little too late to be helpful.
    TGTLAM= That's going to Leave a Mark!
    IWBRO= It will buff right out! (yeah sure it will)
    SHSH= should have stayed home
    FDAW= Future Darwin Award Winner


    I will add a few more as they come to mind, looking froward to learning lots from y'all as time goes by.
    Thanks in advance.
