    @Duncan:  There’s a forum that discusses dinner jackets so much that there’s an acronym for it???

    STD always bothers me. BM sometimes. Mainly the TTC acronyms on this forum are weird to me.

    BM here at work means bowel movement, and I chuckle a little everytime I see it here at weddingbee.  Std always makes me think of venereal diseases.

    @Duncan:  I love that you frequent a forum where people are talking about dinner jackets enough to need an abreviation.

    For me it’s FOB.  Obviously BM and STD are redic, but so common I’m used to them.  Every time I see FOB I think, “well that’s not a very nice thing to say.”

    @Duncan: I always have to re-read when someone says “FOB” because in California I hear it a LOT but it’s certainly not referring to Father of the Bride.

    For me it’s STD, MOB, FOB.



    ETA: I often think of “money over bitches” when I see MOB

    @MsW-to-MrsM:  +1 Anytime I get curious and read a TTC post I have no freaking clue what they are talking about. Then when I figure it out, I want to throw up and gouge my eyes out. I don’t know why I torture myself. I don’t want to hear about anyone’s BDing and I certainly don’t want to know about EWCM. Just. No.

    Let’s just say that I’ve never NOT spelled out the word bridesmaid on this site. 🙂

    STD and BM always make me laugh. Which is bad. I’m apparently a 5-year-old on the inside.

    @MexiPino:  Oh boy I had to look those up…yikes, that was almost as scary as looking something up on Urban Dictionary, haha.

    @Duncan:  Fun idea for a thread! STD and BM are the ones that make me laugh (so mature, I know). 🙂

    STD, BM, FOB make me chuckle, especially when I see a title like “Having BM issues, opinions please!” Or “Help, can’t figure out which STD I like more”

    ETA: DH – when I was in primary (grade?) school, that was tr common abbreviation for dickhead, and still gets used in preson emails sent from my work account.
