    Any that they have missed out on?

    I remember Sneffs (Sub Normal Even For Suffolk)

     
  2. TUBE = Totally unnecessary breast examination

    Happy days... :)
     
  3. Trust me, I'm a nurse, it would be unethical of me to enjoy it... :)
     
  4. I have definitely got PFO on my notes after breaking my ankle several years ago.

    That's how it happened. The A&E staff and ortho surgeons seemed pleased I was honest about it and didn't try to blame someone/something else.
     
  5. TTFO - told to **** off
     
  6. WOFTAM= waste of ******* time and money
     
  7. Guess you skimmed through the article.......

  14. I'm writing a character who is referred to as "Doc" by everyone. One of his friends is a Frenchman though and I'm looking for a non derogatory term of endearment other than "Docteur" that he can call him.
