Just worked it out. What a muppet.

I don't think that makes you a muppet.

I've spent all day taken in by a thread that, on nearing the end, was most definitely a troll.

I could have been learning a language or traversing the Sahara or something useful. grin

Me too...

I sometimes struggle with those shorthands too. When I moved to Glasgow for a year or two I thought there was a football player called Gers as there were constant headlines about him. Gers wins a match etc.

Then it dawned on me that Gers was short for Rangers. Duh.

not Tia.

When I first joined MN I thought an unusual number of women had children with the initials dd.

LittleprincessinGOLDrocks Fri 26-Jul-13 21:51:36

Yeah I thought it was thanks in advance too MrsRajesh

It's on the list

chipmonkey Fri 26-Jul-13 21:52:04

Mrs Rajesh, it can, depending on which socio-economic group you belong to.

ShirazSavedMySanity Fri 26-Jul-13 21:53:26

Ahhhh.... I see. One more.... PFB... Precious first born?

icecubed Fri 26-Jul-13 21:56:16

I got told by someone from MNHQ whilst reporting a post oops!!

The one confusing me at the mo is 'wilf'.

Oh, and the 'afaik' which is at the end of every 'Talk Roundup' email i receive.

What does it all meeeeaaan?

OliviaIsOffTheGinMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 26-Jul-13 21:57:32

As far as I know.

squoosh Fri 26-Jul-13 21:57:51

I think Wilf is the name of a poster's son, isn't that right?

AhoyMcCoy Fri 26-Jul-13 21:58:28

AFAIK- As Far As I Know

Wilf is the name of a MNers son.

PearlyWhites Fri 26-Jul-13 21:59:02

Hopefully it is wilf not milf !

EweHaveGoatToBeKiddin Fri 26-Jul-13 21:59:32

TA (thanks all) grin

Well i hope that Tia realises the can of worms she's opened.

And ooh - a list. Thanks for linking to it, MNHQ

When I first joind I thougbt that when people just put the word "bump" as a post on any thread (even one about eastendrs) they were announcing that they had just discovered they were pregnant

squoosh Fri 26-Jul-13 22:13:55


Announcing a pregnancy with a single 'bump' doesn't sound too excited does it!

papercliphoarder Fri 26-Jul-13 22:15:40

Stealth that's brilliant grin
