PCI, EDC, TIRF, AID, CVV, CVC, ACH, TIN (This Is Nuts!)

I realize every industry has its share of acronyms. However, it does seem that the payments biz is beyond overload on this front. Having been involved in this realm for 30 years, my brain is crammed with them. I come across people that are new to the biz every day and I really feel for their struggle to understand the language. I thought it was bad trying to figure out what my kids were saying in their texts to me but at least there is a site you can go to to figure those out. http://www.webopedia.com/quick_ref/textmessageabbreviations.asp
Welcome any feedback!
