Reality reared it's ugly head today - back to work...

I spent all day on a Health & Safety course (another 8 hrs tomorrow too Sad ), and it was full of WEL's, COSHH, WSP's, RA's, VWF, DTT's, LEP, CSS, SQEP, MEWP's,... every section that was covered had it's own little list of acronyms that went with it... spent a lot of time trying to remember what they each stood for... my brain was like pulp by the time the assessment at the end was done. Confused

So I thought that this evening I'd chill out & see what new crack was on my fave forum It Bites Logo ... and the acronym-terrorists have invaded it too!!! Thumb Down
The new album's only just hit the streets, and already the title's been acronymised ! ! ! (by Frenchyphil in a reply in the IB section - sorry Phil, you're 'named & shamed' Wink )

It must be a disease... like a virus... spreading through society... invading our writings... our speech patterns... soon we'll all be speaking Acronymish - we won't know what we're all on about, but it'll sound really cool... Rolling Eyes

Please, can we maybe use the first couple of words from the title or something - I'm getting too bloody old to be trying to solve acronyms as welll as reading the post they're in. I'll even admit to thinking (until the penny dropped - CLANG! ) that CATH was some lass that helped out at gigs... Embarassed

Sorry 'bout that - rant over. Mr Hyde's gone back in his box.

Until the next time...

Good point well made, the first word would be enough.

Ah! The ZXR750! Was lucky enough to have a ride on a J model about a year ago. Excellent! Smile

Nothing compared to the mighty TRX850, though..... Wink

Well, as I own a TRX, I'm obviously biaised towards that, but the RD is an awesome bike and a true classic. All kudos to you, Sir! Smile
