Response to Atticus (Original post)

Thu Jan 14, 2021, 11:50 AM

70. I had written a post much like yours

a year ago on Facebook and the responses were really interesting, as well as humorous. One of the people I had in mind didn't realize she was one of the main offenders. She wholeheartedly agreed with me, yet went on to respond to my comments with acronyms that made her sound like a fifteen year old sending text messages to her "BFF". I just refuse to respond when she uses them. I reposted it again this year, hoping it will get through to a few.

Meanwhile, I look a lot of things up everyday, as it is an ongoing learning experience, but I have absolutely no need to learn a bunch of acronyms that I will never use and probably never even come across again. Also, I will only use a person's initials for a handful of iconic figures who earned such a designation - i.e. FDR, LBJ, MLK, RBG, JFK. Margaret Taylor-Greene doesn't fall in that category.
