Abbrev. that make you crazy

If it doesn't fit anywhere else, it fits here

Postby TheBookPolice » Mon Aug 25, 2008 11:26 am

In light of a recent booze-related thread, I give you:

"packies."

Also, "brekkie" for "breakfast," if it hasn't come up yet.

Brits and the Irish can cram it with walnuts for all the "-ie" suffixing they're doing. I'm suffixiating!

Incidentally, I've found over the years I have no problem with "wifey." (paging Dr. Freud)

Wifey isn't an abbreviation, since it is not abbreviated; it's elongated.

Fair point. I got swept away in the tide of diminutives.

KFC isnt' the abbreviation, that's the actual name now. There aren't any more Kentucky Fried Chickens.

And if you're a KFC regular, you've been asslubricated.
