Why couldn't he have just typed it in full, like you did?


signed,

-Acronym Hater!
I understand the use of acronyms. It's easier and more efficient. However the writer or speaker is assuming that the reader or listener is familiar with the acronym.

Just as a humorous, aside. When I first encountered the acronym, " lol". I thought it meant " lots of love."

Imagine the difference in nuance; If you had a friend recovering from an illness and you sent them a card.
Then signed off : best wishes, lots of love (lol) as opposed to best wishes, laughing out loud (lol).

That's why you don't use acronyms in a greeting card.
