I fullheartedly agree and I have told my co-worker so. As I mentioned in my earlier node, I wouldn't use such variable names at all.

But the point was merely why we couldn't use the variable names as any variable name. Just imagine that in this specific case it did have a real meaning. (Which it didn't.)

Everything will go worng!
