RE: professional Practice with a segue...

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I have an interesting one....
My boss has started a list of, say, drafting faux pas or mangled terms he
has heard/seen over his years of experience.

i.e.

Riff Raff = Rip Rap
-  Sonic Tubes = Sono Tubes
-  #4 every which way = #4 EW
-  ...and a note seen on some old Architectural drawings in VA.  "All work
shall be done in accordance with the wishes of the Architect and his
 friends".

Any others?

Peggy
