acronyms r us

Something I actually said to someone at work today:

'Where was the last FDR meeting held? I'm looking for a place for EPAN. Oh, and is it ok if I come to your PCD meeting next week?'

The weird thing is, he understood exactly what I was talking about.

Interesting. Personally, I use some of those sometimes, well not your specific ones, but I mean if I talk about an organization or a disorder or something.

It's worse when they are French and you have to remember whether to translate them or not. I quite like UPU: the Universal Postal Union. [http://www.un.org/Pubs/chronicle/2005/issue2/0205p72.html]

Hmm...Where was the last FDR meeting held?
Umm...Yalta? No, probably Camp David.

Gosh, it must be a public sector/non-profit scourge. I even have an acronym dictionary for lay-people!
