Though I am loathe to admit it, the Mercury has hired someone who has little to no regard for the English language. (And no, I'm not talking about the entire staff.) I'm talking about sales account executive Marissa who said, and I quote, "I luv 2 abbrev e-thing!" (Translated: I love to abbreviate everything.) That's fine with me—I avoid communicating with her at all costs. HOWEVER! She did bring up an interesting quandary: How does one abbreviate the word "usual"? Stumped for an answer (and not caring to think about it any further), I'm punting this to the internet/abbreviation savvy residents of Blogtown. So what is it, you guys?
HOW WOULD YOU ABBREVIATE THE WORD, "USUAL"?
