My favourite:

Some doctors...anyone unprofessional enough to do this would certainly not record that they had done it.

Many medical acronyms were used in a derogatory way, yrs ago. But not any longer (hopefully).

FLK, funny looking kid. Although thought to be derogatory, it was actually used to describe a new born where the facial features did not appear to be right, e.g ears lower down the head than normal. This was before a diagnosis could be made, often it would emerge that the child had some type of chromosomal syndrome. This term is never used now (I hope).

Without doubt my favourite is R.T.F.M.

Read The F**king Manual

It saved alot of time closing support call logs many years ago.

'Told user to R.T.F.M.' for example.

You're all probably too young to remember BBC's Radio Times, which quite often published a section dedicated to "a random selection of light entertainment"...
