Default Acronyms you find irrationaly annoying (BOGO)

BOGO always triggers me. don't know why. comes off as shrill marketing.

do you get similarly annoyed by stuff like this

NOC - Network Operations Center

I just have some unreasonable issue with people who say it as a word instead of speaking the letters. "Oh, you work in 'the knock'?"

I fucking hate BOGO as well as about 96% of all acronyms. Basically, I lament the death of the English language in general.

I definitely get what you mean about the "shrill marketing" aspect. It's like some guys in a fucking board room decided they could sell more shit to us by appearing hip and creating new lingo. Fuck off and die with that shit.

Whenever I see music discussions that go:

Hey BM is my favorite I love their album MR, it's way better than ST. RoR, NRNR, ToTD and FDTD are way better than DDM, CMIYC and RoN.

It makes me wanna slit my wrists.
