What does WADITWB stand for?

We always did it that way before

WADITWB is an acronym for the phrase “we always did it that way before”. It’s a phrase often used when people are resistant to change and want to hold on to the old ways of doing things.

It’s mainly used by those who prefer sticking to the known rather than venturing into the unknown. They’d rather not learn something new if they can help it. This acronym is a reaction to being asked to alter their methods or routines.

However, keep in mind that not everyone will understand what WADITWB stands for. Therefore, it’s best to use it sparingly and only with those who you are sure will understand its meaning.
