Your question intrigued me and I did a little looking around.

Try this

Since the advent of the internet and especially text messaging, we are buried in acronyms. Most of them, we take for granted. ASAP is very common in the US and so is RSVP, but most Americans don't actually know what RSVP stands for other than "The Favor of a Reply is Requested" or "Let us know if you're coming or not".

Good luck on the job.
