A Code for Parents

In my last post, I ranted a bit about texting shorthand and the demise of the English language.

Another problem I have with this is that it essentially gives kids a secret code with which they can communication with each other without us parents knowing what they’re talking about.  Of course, we don’t know what they’re talking about even when they’re not using shorthand, but that’s a topic for another day.

Do you know what “420″ means in a text message?  How about “CICO?”  Or “ITSFWI?”
(Respectively: “marijuana,” “coffee in, coffee out,” and “if the shoe fits, wear it.”)  One of my favorites is “D&M.”  Really, how “deep and meaningful” can you be when you’re texting a series of nonsense letters?

Anyway, I was thinking that perhaps it would be a good idea if parents had shorthand that we could use to talk about our kids in front of their backs.  Here are a few to get this trend started:

MKAI………………………My Kid’s An Idiot
TG4PF……………………..Thank God for Pass/Fail
IKWMKSI–WS…………I Know Where My Kid’s Stash Is–Want Some?
PIRSP……………………….Piercing in a Really Stupid Place
RSTIRVP………………….Really Stupid Tattoo in Really Visible Place
LD……………………………Liquor Disappearing
TBC-SOS………………….Teen Borrowed Car-Stay Off Streets
DOD-TIH………………….Daughter on Date-Tums in Hand
CBMKWMC……………..Can’t Be My Kid; Wife Must’ve Cheated
VFBCL……………………..Very Few Brain Cells Left
WKTHB……………………White Kid Thinks He’s Black
2Y4P………………………..Too Young for Porn

Got any other suggestions?  Post them.  Maybe we can compile our own secret codebook, which we will need, because, really, we’re too old to remember all these acronyms.

    THGC: Thinks he’s getting the car
    WDIB: Why Do I Bother
    DYTTKWHITBOF: Do you thin they know what happens in the bedroom on Fridays?
