“Excuse me, sir. Seeing as how the V.P. is such a V.I.P., shouldn’t we keep the P.C. on the Q.T.? ‘Cause if it leaks to the V.C. he could end up M.I.A., and then we’d all be put out in K.P.”

Was I the only one that thought of this scene from Good Morning Vietnam when they saw the topic for this listicle?  I started cracking up, only I’m at work while I’m writing this which is NOT a good idea!

In case you haven’t figured out, the Listicle is Acronyms.  Specifically, the 10 acronyms you use regularly.  I feel like I could do a list of 50 instead of 10, given the background in music, financial services, military, etc.  But most of the one I use daily are a direct reference to things at work.  Yet oddly enough, the ones I cannot stand to use are the common text abbreviations.  Nope, I’m a full text typer!

  1. PDF: Portable Document Format
  2. NMIS: Northwestern Mutual Investment Services
  3. NMFN: Northwestern Mutual Financial Network
  4. ETA: Electronic Transmittal of Application
  5. ISA: Individual Service Account
  6. EFT: Electronic Funds Transfer
  7. TNC: The Network Connection
  8. CSS: Client Service System
  9. CCV: Consolidated Client View (Also, Country Club of Virginia)
  10. IRA: Individual Retirement Account

Boring list, isn’t it!
