On so many posts, it's ended "TIA" or "Tia x" and I always think it's people signing off their name and they must be new to posting or something.

It has just clicked in my head that it means Thanks in advance.

For fucks sake! grin

Does anybody have any other stupid brain fart moments they'd care to make me feel less stupid with?!grin

Tia xoxox

itsBritneyBeach Fri 10-Aug-18 23:51:43

itsBritneyBeach Fri 10-Aug-18 23:52:29

@FiestaThenSiesta that's fantastic grin

I always read RTFT as read the fucking thread, and I refuse to believe it's anything else!

SneakyGremlins Fri 10-Aug-18 23:52:44

biscuit I thought this was an arsehole at first. After all, that's what everyone uses it for...

FordPrefect42 Fri 10-Aug-18 23:57:22

I used to think TBF meant “to be frank”.

Also get really confused when I see the acronym DV for “domestic violence” as all I can see is “diarrhoea and vomiting” 🤢

FordPrefect42 Fri 10-Aug-18 23:58:24

@SneakyGremlins I thought it was a boob, as in “tits to that” or something. Then one day I looked closer and lo and behold it’s a Jammy Dodger 😆

itsBritneyBeach Sat 11-Aug-18 00:00:03

Ffs now all I can see is a cats arse! I also thought it was a boob, calling people tits grin

tennis also thought this was the moon to go with star

HouseworkIsASin10 Sat 11-Aug-18 00:00:05

Me too! I couldn't believe that Tia was so popular as a name. Ha ha took me a whileblush

itsBritneyBeach Sat 11-Aug-18 00:03:02

Confirmed! grin I am just thick!

mikado1 Sat 11-Aug-18 00:04:13

So funny! I still think tbf is to be frank!

FordPrefect42 Sat 11-Aug-18 00:04:19

Haha I’ve never seen SWI or SWOI, but maybe that’s because I steer clear of that section of MN!

FordPrefect42 Sat 11-Aug-18 00:05:11

TBF is “to be fair” @mikado1, but it should be “to be frank” in my opinion!

jaxhwc Sat 11-Aug-18 00:06:17

IME which for some reason I always read as 'in my epinion' even though I know IMO is 'in my opinion' and IME is 'in my experience' sounds like opinion in a French accent hmm

itsBritneyBeach Sat 11-Aug-18 00:07:58

Epiniongrin come to thing of it, same! I always just read it in my head as In my E. And I'm like yeah makes total sense!

Greenyogagirl Sat 11-Aug-18 00:09:14

Rtft is read the fucking thread surely??
When my nan died my mum got lots of messages ending ‘LOL’ and a couple of laugh crying faces.
I was shocked, anyway it seemed they all thought it meant ‘lots of love’ and it was a crying emoji 🤔

mikado1 Sat 11-Aug-18 00:09:40

Imo FordPrefect42 it should be too!
