The DW

I've seen several of the male posters refer to their mate as "the DW". The DW guides the trailer while the male backs in the site, makes coffee etc, etc. Being somewhat internet and texting illiterate, I've been speculating as to the true meaning of "the DW'. It could mean "Darling Wife"? If you're from NJ, it could mean "Da Wife"?. My "DW" thinks it must mean "Dish Washer". There are many possibilities.

Finally I decided to Google and find the true meaning. It wasn't easy; there were few references to "the DW". Finally, I found it and it makes more nervous than before. Ok here it is; word for word:

DW

an extremely nasty female. 2. a worshiper of the Devil (devil worshiper).

I kid you not; here's the link:

Definition of DW | The Online Slang Dictionary

Now, I don't know any of the people behind this forum. Forest River sounds like nice family, fun name and the posters and administrators are very helpful, but is this some kind of cult? If I go to one of the rallys am I in some danger? Is there any animal sacrifice going on? There's been a lot of talk about dog etiquette, but are the poor pooches being mistreated? I could lay awake at night thinking of the possibilities. In fact I recently heard about a dyslexic, insomniac agnostic who stayed awake all night wondering if there was "Dog".

I want to learn more about your "DW's".

I know how you feel, but I had to find out once and for all. As they say: "fools rush in where angels fear to tread". If the DW's are really devil worshipers, then it calls for some investigation of the subject.

Darling Wife, Dish washer, Dumb well I wont' go there. DH is Darling Husband or designated hitter depending on if your in a baseball game or not. Actually there was a glosary of these somewhere here in a thread that had gotten quite long and funny, try a search and see if you can find it.

Ok, I'll look for the thread. In the meantime there's a few more.

Dark Wizard, Dedicated Wife, Deputy Warden and Disaster Warning (good one especially if she's helping you back in a tight spot),

I think if I called my wife a dear or darling anything she would hit me, because she would be able to read right through that nonsense coming from me.
