Where I work we have acronym overload. I know it is to help remember different elements of work related programs but it does get ridiculous and redundant.

I know my work is the same way, I understand everything but if somebody is not from our area its like we're talking chinese. :P

When I'm writing a text to a friend I will write "Idk" "wtf" "lol" and etc. But I never say "Idk" I say "I don't know". People that say "LOL" in a serious tone should be mutes. Only reason I type acronyms is because I'm short with my texts to my friends. They know what I mean.

My least favorite are the ones given to athletes and celebrities like LBJ, CP3, BenJen, etc.

I can't stand the LBJ! His name is not Le Bron James, how can you separate his first name and make that acronym... His name is Lebron Raymone James, which makes his initials LRJ..
