I must be old fashioned, but all these abbreviations drive me insane

I was just on another forum and there was a post so full of computer-speak abbreviations that I could barely make it out. It took quite a bit longer for me to read since I had to decipher the "code" as I went.

My husband will usually be referred to as "hubby", not DH. I usually spell things out, or shorten them a little where the word is still recognizable!

Does all the DH, DD, DS, SAHM, SO, (and the 10 million others) get on anyone else's nerves, or is it just me?

I spend a lot of time on various forums, so I'm so used to the abbreviations that I sometimes even use them when I'm speaking

I'm right there with ya! So tell me...what does DH stand for exactly?? Designated Husband? Da Hubby? I don't know....guess I'm too old for the "new" lingo!

I've learned that the DH stands for "darling husband" DS "darling son" DD "darling daughter" etc. I think its a bit silly myself

I was confused at first. Now that I am a post a holic, I have gotten to know them. Just easier ways of not having to spell everything out.
sahm=stay at home mom
ms=morning sickness (might need that one on this board)
some of them still stump me.
I still make up my own too.

I'm very computer literate but I am so glad you said that. I am so confused with all these abbreviations. DH,DS it's like it's a different language. I'm all for shortcuts but what about having some type of "key" to explain what all these mean?
