  1. Too long 99 oh god
    How a man can remember and learn all thesr

  2. I remember studying all these abbs for my Business Communications Systems class. Every week there would be a quiz on 10 abbs to spell out. Many people never saw the point, but professor kept telling us in the future we will come across these abbs so you’d need to know what they mean to keep up with the conversation. And he was right!

  3. Well done . great post !
