what are all the acronyms?

like kwim, df, dh,ds etc.. ? I see them all the time and I'm always wondering what the hell they mean.
I know what SO,MIL,FIL,SIL,BIL means , but the others baffle me.
Why can't people just refer to them for what they are ex: brother in law, mother in law etc..?

  • I hate them all. It's like people can't take the extra whopping two seconds it takes to type..... and what's sad is I know I've fallen victim to it myself. Really, I'm just afraid people won't know what I'm talking about if I don't shorten it up--haha

  • I thought DF meant dear fiance?!? They should send an email when you sign up with all the abbreviations people use! LOL.
