AIBU to think I'm the only one on this site who thought a DS was a games console?

What the hell is a DC, a DS, a DH and a DD?

Where I come from (admittedly out in the sticks) DC comes after Washington, a DS is a games console, the DH is what we call our local Hotel for short and a DD is something that comes off your bank account every month to pay your bills! shock

Can someone please enlighten this country bumpkin?

Look up and to your left - acronyms!

cornsillk Thu 13-Aug-09 23:03:57

No actually - to your right (wine!)

You know after a while you will start to think and have to stop yourself from calling your kids DC or your hubby DH.

I honestly have to stop myself when texting.

larks35 Thu 13-Aug-09 23:07:15

skybright Thu 13-Aug-09 23:07:25

I always thought TIA was a MNer who changed her nickname an awful lot, but signed her name atthe end of her posts so people knew it was her. Turns out it means Thanks In Advance blush

I really REALLY dont think babydancing is a mumsnet acronym. Netmums, yes, you floozy... grin

And if it IS a mumsnet acronym as shall not only eat my proverbial hat (or virtual Nike Cap) but lodge an official complaint to the Powers that Be.

EyeballsintheSky Thu 13-Aug-09 23:19:46

What are you insinuating??? shock. I have never visited Netmums. Humph. How very dare you!
