abbrev

 Or .. in english... when is an abbreviation not an abbreviation?

here is a classic example of why it is not a good idea to use abbreviations to try to shorten the time explaining something to someone....

taken from this page....

https://community.plus.net/t5/Mobile/How-easy-is-it-to-leave-plusnet/m-p/1762832#M18232

 

ishouldcocoa  wants to know how easy it is to stop a direct debit payment to Plusnet for a sim card....

newagetraveller responds with......"As long as your PN payments are up to date ..........."

ishouldcocoa asks the question......  "what are PN payments??? "

MisterW ( superuser) responds with..... "PN is short for PlusNet"

 

Ah well... !

Re: abbrev

There has to be a limit, but come on @shutter! When discussing payments to PlusNet what else would PN refer to?

Re: abbrev

I always thought it meant Pay Now when referring to a direct debit. 😎
