TLA = Three Letter Acronym
TNA = Tit's-n-a$$
TBA = To Be Announced (or, Too Bad A-hole!!)

Someone at my company actually took the time to write down as many TLA's as he could (with help from co-workers) and had something like 4 full pages of them. The auto industry is full of them!!!!

DC = DaimlerChrysler
FORD = Found On Road Dead

You get the idea.

My favorite is still WFO. Gordo is the first one I have ever heard use this TLA.

Normally you’re right but humility on OSO might be a stretch.

ALL CAPS MEANS YELLING. It is hard to read and should be reserved for emphasis only. Everybody does it until someone points it out. Thanks for asking about the TTT, I didn't know that either.
