All this reminds me of when I used to work for some GPs (family doctors for you guys over in the states) and when they would get somebody who whinged and whined and there was nothing really wrong with them, hypochondriacs essentially. Anyway, they would write in their notes TTFO. Now, TATT is well know (Tired All The Time) and is frequently written down in notes. TTFO, however, is Told To F*&k Off! Another one when presented with a small child of unusual appearance for one reason or another: FLK. Funny looking kid.

Those were the abbreviations I already knew, maybe I better could have added it to it, but I learned a few more.
I guess there are a lot of them, most people (incl me) don't know the meaning of.
