Do you ever make up acronyms for the random letters on the vehicles license plate as you sit behind them at a light or in a traffic jam? I have often wondered if I do this just because I am a nurse and we have so many abbreviations in the medical field or if alot of other people do the same thing. Thanks for reading and responding.

I don't do that, but I remember seeing a license plate that belonged to a urologist at the hospital in which I worked at the time. His license plate said "C Me 2 P". I thought that was pretty cute.

Hey there! I am an engineer and we also have a lot of acronyms to learn. But i don't do that. Maybe what you're doing is just a stress reliever when you're on a car or something. Am i right?

Oh yes! I do it frequently. It's one of my favorite traveling games. A variation of acronyms is to use the letters in the order they appear to form a word. You can have letters in between, of course. Here's an example. CFN could be ConFusioN.

I do this sometimes. There have been times when I have a hard time figuring out what the heck they are supposed to say. I have to do this with names on myLot sometimes too.

I think everyone does that when they are stuck in traffic. You have to do something to keep from going crazy. I work in politics and talk about a field that has acronyms. My cup runeth over. We have acronyms for acronyms. I also try to see if I can make up words to fit the person in the car. I get stuck in traffic a lot.lol Shalom~Adoniah

My dad told me my license plate could belong to a licensed massage therapist since it has the letters LMT (It's not a vanity plate, just a regular one.) I will occasionally try to make words or acronyms from other plates. I've seen a few ending with PWN or PWD, which made me think of the Internet word "pwned." Another had the letters UFA, which I pronounced "oofah!"
