Automotive doors that hinge from the rear edge of the door instead of the leading edge. They acquired the "suicide" nickname due to the fact that if the door was not fully closed and the occupant tried to open and reclose the door while the car was moving (which for some reason was once common practice), the rushing air would catch the door and pull it open violently, often pulling the person still holding the door handle out of the car.
Grandpa told us that Uncle Wilbur was run over after he tried to shut the suicide doors on his 33 coupe and was thrown out under a truck. He was never the same after that.

Acronym for "Reset Tool, Slap Operator." Used when signing a manufacturing tool back up for production by very aggravated process engineers who have to go to the farthest reaches of the factory simply to push the resume button on a tool because the operator of the tool was totally clueless.

1. C. Operator: Tool in ZZZ-bay is not running. Don't know why.

2. Process E.: RTSO. Grrr...

Written instead of:
2. Process E.: Walked all the way across this three mile long manufacturing complex to the farthest processing bay that there is to find the tool sitting idle just waiting for the START PROCESS buttom to be pushed. Pushed button. Tool started. Really really really really really wanted to slap the shit out of the operator, but prefer not to go to HR. Grrr...
