Ok...I am confused.
As most of you know, I am new to the forum...but I have been reading it for quite a while...I am confused by a new acronyms being thrown around...can someone throw me a paddle?
The main ones for me are
DH
DW
and SF
I only conclusions I have drawn is DH stands for "Da husband," and DW "Da wife?" but I am pretty sure I'm wrong.
is SF => Sole Female?
Confused!

Maybe...Dear husband/wife? (I went a little overboard with Da)

Isn't it dear husband and dear wife? I am not sure who thought up those. I think they are redicoulous. Just call them the wife or the husband. I've never seen SF.

There was a glossary somewhere on here but I can't find it. Anyone know where that is?

We just covered this recently. Look under Chat, Vent, Laugh, Cry in the Forum section. There you will find the Innspiring Glossary which outlines all of the abbreviated terms. Some are pretty funny.

SF is a new one that hasn't made it in there yet. I believe it is sole female proprietor.

SF = Single/Sole Female

Here's my favorite = SGDS or "Sudden Granny Death Syndrome".
Used alot at the hotel I managed to describe those guests who try cancelling at the last minute because their "grandma passed away today". I always thought it a bit odd that grandmothers (never grandfathers) only died at the last minute on the weekends.
Yeah tell me about it. We get that so often, its a wonder there is anyone left alive. It used to be funny, but now its just a bore.

I'm suprised.....I haven't heard it at all since I left the hotel seven years ago...never had it here at the Inn.
