Excellent thread! I always wondered what a SPUT was, but I had a feeling that I'd know it when I saw it...
Like when I drove off from the dealership w/ my new (to me) trailer and the hitch ball receiver (part on the trailer that fits over the ball) didn't seat correctly, so the trailer came off of the ball when I hit the first good sized bump and caught on the safety chains. I knew it was a SPUT, even if I didn't know what it meant!
Uhhhh, yup - that's a SPUT. WELCOME TO THE CLUB!
Incredible how fast I got responses. (Do you have jobs?)
I did a search to no avail, but it looks like several of you must have cut & pasted from previous posts. No one types that fast.
Thanks. Now I can sleep.
I can't speak for anyone else, but I didn't cut and paste - and you can measure my typing speed with a calendar. DW types 45 words per minute - no big deal, I know. I have to look down at the keyboard when I type, and can generally get something coherent out (after spell check) in about 4 minutes.
Big secret here - type your replies in a word processor (like Microsoft Word or Corel Word Perfect) then cut & paste it here. It makes you look more intelligent than you really are...
Hey - it's been working for me for years!
"Dear" wife or "dear" husband just sound so patronizing. How about dizzy, dorky, dumbfounded or dimwitted?...
Those adjective would be propery placed in posts in the BLUNDERS folder
Dear? I always thought it stood for DA as in "the" (in a Minnesota accent and yes you Minnesotans have accents)
Thanks for posting those questions. The DW and DH had me confused also! I got the last letters okay, but it was the D I was having problems with
I thought it was Da, like Da Wife.
Need to throw GTG into the works.
Short for Get ToGether. Or meet up or campout
Only for the NJ campers on the board! J/K (just kidding) folks, I'm a Jersey person too so I can make fun of us...
It TMFAL (threw me for a loop) too. Since I don't get into the texting and quick responce modes of communication I was spending a bit of time guessing.
You know, like Tom Hanks:
(Movie quote - "Sleepless in Seattle.")
I thought the D was for darling (or darlin for us Southeners).
my father says ... L O L --> low on Lipitor

OMGosh, I've got to send these to my sis. She's the main caregiver for our folks, DD-90 and DM-89. She also does all the email correspondence for dad since he isn't steady enough to type anymore.
Think this will give her quite a chuckle.
