Ready to expand your texticon again? Then let’s see what day two of the A to Z Challenge has in store for us:
Seems like it should be BMHAAW or BMH(2A)W, doesn’t it? (Is nitpicking over the accuracy of an acronym young folks use an indicator that one’s age is north of 30?)
Use BMHAW when you want to express the frustration something or someone causes you.
Here are some things that makes me BMHAW:
- Idiot drivers who never, ever use their blinkers. Little Man will attest to the fact that many drivers on the road are “mmmmmffffffnnnn morons who should not be allowed behind the wheel of a car.”
- Donald Trump. Need I say more?
- Pushy people who try to sell me stuff that I don’t want. I wrote about this here, but my most recent encounter was with a guy at Walmart who was trying to sell me a DishTV package, despite being told that I don’t have cable or satellite because I don’t want it. He insisted he could find me a package I’d be happy with (that’s what she said!), so I asked him to show me the ones for $10 or less, which is about what I pay for Netflix. He could not.
- Older people who talk about how they did things “back in the day” in such a way that indicates precautions you take now are stupid. You know, “back in the day we didn’t have car seats and you kids turned out fine” or “back in the day everything wasn’t childproofed and you all turned out fine.” Clearly we’re coddling Baby Girl by not kicking her butt to the booster seat when she turned one and by not giving her unlimited access to poisonous cleansers.
Alternative meaning: There’s one at Urban Dictionary, and it was a little too inappropriate for this post.
Textspeak I passed up: BAMF (bad ass motherfucker), BITD (back in the day), BFD (big fucking deal).
So, what leaves you BMHAW (er, BYHAW)?
