Where do the terms "ER" and "EE" come from?


Recommended Posts

I know, dumbest question ever, right?

 

But is it:

1. E[mploye]R & E[mploye]E

or

2. [employ]ER & [employ]EE

 

For 20 years, I had always thought of it as one of the above, but someone else's usage just made realize that the other potential source exists.

Exact opposite here. I had always assumed #1, and honestly hadn't even considered the alternative, which I think makes more sense, until seeing this.

#2 - as those are the letters that differentiate between the two words.   But then again, for efficiency sake (and for the same reason), we could just go with "R" and "E"...
