There was a round in the pub quiz this week about acronyms popular online. Our team knew all but one: WoMBaT.
You probably know it already. It means Waste of Money, Brain and Time.
I quite like it. It’s so dismissive.
Car ownership? WoMBaT!
Conventional day job? Definitely WoMBaT!
Wait, a day job is a waste of money? Well, it can be. A day job costs quite a bit in commuting, appropriate attire, lunches, lattes, consumer treats to cheer you up on the weekend, anti-depressants, income tax, and the revenue you might have earned doing something else.
Not to be confused with actual Wombats, of course. Those are lovely.
