Business as Usual

Work in Progress

Date of Delivery ?

 

I've no issue with a initialisms or acronyms when they're used in an email, but they should never be spoken.

 

BTW, in case it crops up, AOB is Any Other Business (not Andy O'Brien).

Been having this discussion with @Lenny with a y and @Ghana White why are people saying such silly things at work:

piece (for anything)

BAU

WIP

DOD (still working it out)

Can you fall out with someone who needlessly uses Acronyms ?

Don't read some of the many military articles available. They're like code.

You missed outDNR. Is that in code so the person subject to the DNR doesn’t actually know? 😀
