    Excellent! Have added a couple more that I've thought of too.

    Is there anyway of getting this stickied to the top of the forum at all please? If it drops off the first page it'll be no use! :D

    thanks for the sticky, this is great for newish Guiders like moi.

    My Oh is in Drug and Alcohol work, and they have a few....most not suitable for here but purely for your amusement...
    FOD-fell over drunk
    FDD-falling down drunk
    PRU-p*****d right up ( I tink this is a coventry saying!)

    and your'e not on drinking binge, you are "in drink"

    I don't suppose we should these to the list, as they are hardly relevant, but makes me laugh when he's on call and he is asking about his clients!

    Guiding is as bad as education for the acronyms... I'd not realised we had this many!

    As a trainee teacher, I am trying to get to grips with general acronyms, school specific ones and uni specific ones. We decided the other day that the cruellest way to wind up a PGCE student is ask them " have you filled in form QBFKJRNS yet?" A new way of baffling /scaring off new Guiders?!

    Apparently, but due to the age of graduates and members of sagga I cant see you playing pub golf dressed as scooby doo characters.

    Yeah, but remember that a graduate can also be as young as 20, as I would have been had I gone to an English uni and not done a language degree.

    I graduated at 20 but many of the members of sagga are older due to me having all their details in the contacts book
