Me & Amybow & Instant Messenger



Wenderina[10:10 AM]:
Wanna laugh?


Amybow [10:11 AM]:
i love to laugh


Wenderina[10:11 AM]:
Gina got a comment on a slide that said FBSTCHAC.

Amybow [10:11 AM]:
???

Wenderina [10:11 AM]:
She assumed it was some kind of technical acronym and put it where they had written it.
On the next draft they commented again (in a rather condescending way)
FBSTCHAC does NOT belong on the slide.
It means Fix Background So That Column Headers Are Clear.
DUH.

Amybow [10:12 AM]:
WHO THE HELL WOULD KNOW THAT

Wenderina [10:12 AM]:
How could we NOT know that?

Amybow [10:12 AM]:
was this some young, text messaging wippersnapper?

Wenderina [10:12 AM]:
No. Just new to us.

I even Googled it to see if it was some editor's note that we just weren't familiar with. No result.

Amybow [10:12 AM]:
Should we add it to acronym finder?

Wenderina [10:12 AM]:
I should do that.
Too funny.

Amybow[10:12 AM]:
that is really funny.
people are nuts

Amybow [10:14 AM]:
ETROYD

Wenderina [10:14 AM]:
???


Amybow [10:14 AM]:
enjoy the rest of your day
i figure i can make up acronyms like anyone else

Wenderina[10:14 AM]:
You are the COOLEST

Amybow [10:15 AM]:

Editor's Note: Another productive work day.

If I knew that convo would make it to the world famous Anxious Moments blog I would have tried to be even hipper. Like that is possible...

Sadly, I would not have done quite this well with this.

That made me laugh out loud. Six years ago when I first started working where I work now, I made a list of the acronyms and what they actually mean and it was three pages long.

That was hilarious. I'm so going to use ETROYD (even though it brings a large, buff dude to mind for some reason). :)
