Meow, but I know how you feel. I'm the IT guy and EVERYTHING is an acronym. When I first started working they kept talking about NARs, HOD, NALs, PIVS. I was like "mew? O_o"

Friendly bit of advice (for anyone in this predicament):

The next time you're in a meeting, and acronyms are flying left and right, write as many as you can on a piece of paper. After the meeting, approach a co-worker or supervisor and ask him to translate for you. You'll get the answers you're looking for and you'll show interest in your job.

Having just finished an 8 month co-op with our esteemed military, I can tell you no one used more acronyms than they do. I have heard many conversations as depicted in this cartoon, and the scary part was, towards the end of the co-op I understood them all...

That, and there is actually an online document for acronyms there, courtesy of the CDS office. :-?

I'm new to WT, found it through QuestionableContent like a few others, and plowed through the entire archive in two days.

Just wanted to say congarats on the new job, and I think your comic is amazing. It's in my top 3 favorite webcomic list after only two days!

And I'm kind of scared....I actually caught a few of those acronyms, and I'm not even an Engineer O_O

I've gone through all of your archives today (what better way to avoid studying for a final?), and I adore your comic.
Don't you just love the obtuse terminology? I work in the bike business, and I don't understand half of what the service guys are talking about (well, when it's work-related. I understand the dick jokes).

Ahahaha, yes, this little Swedenling also had to ask his dear friend Mr/Mrs/Ms Google.. I always used to say that Geography was my worst subject, guess it's still true. *smirk*

And regarding acronyms, I know how that feels, studying IT, I can find conversations consisting practically entirely of acronyms, good thing I do understand them. But it would be hell for someone who doesn't talk the talk etc. ; )

Wow... That's so very true. I still don't know what 90% of the acronyms mean at my workplace.

"Ask the ERD." "ERD?" "New guy." "Why didn't you just say so?"

(Sorry. Long time reader, first time poster)

Heh... while I didn't have any trouble figuring out that Ottawa is the capital of Canada (ok, ok... so maybe I did almost say "Toronto"), I just kept getting it wrong because I was spelling it OTTOWA, which is kinda the phonetic spelling of how I pronounce it.

*Shrugs*
