I'll try to get the list started...

IMHO: In My Humble Opinion
IIRC: If I Recall Correctly
SWMBO: She Who Must Be Obeyed (one's wife or girlfriend)
LOL: Laughing Out Loud
ROFL: Rolling On Floor Laughing
POS: Piece Of $#**
PO: Previous Owner
PITA: Pain In The @$$
FUBAR: Mess Up Beyond All Recognition

There's a bunch more, but this is all I can recall off-hand.

In my teenage years STOP had a different meaning altogether.....State Tax on .....

Well, it wasn't my idea.....

Dang! Just when I got used to being "strange", I became a "newbie", then a "tire-kicker", then a "beginner" (hmmmph)...Now I be a "wrench turner", so I can once again work on the car....he he
