Annoying Office Jargon - Part III


#1104

sprint sessions.


#1105

nail down jelly.

Heard just now on a conference call


#1106

That deserved a nice post at least.


#1107

Drinking from the hose pipe.


#1108

‘leaning in’

This has exploded into action the last couple of months. Every cunt is telling everyone else how they need to lean in or calling out great examples of others leaning in. There’ll be chiropractors making savage money from all the leaning related injuries.


#1109

Sheryl coined this in 2013 ffs.


#1110

She may well have bit I’ve never heard it used so much before.


#1111

Copying or taking text from an existing document is no more, you now “leverage off the document”


#1112

“Plagiarise with pride”


#1113

There’s a fella in our office that gets great leverage out of leverage. You’d think everything is a slam dunk listening to him talk about all the leverage he can leverage.


#1114

Intentionality


#1115

“Planful”.


#1116

What the fucking fuck ??


#1117

Another thing that has annoyed me recently - what’s the story with people who need to use “perfect” all the time? It’s especially jarring in emails, tends to be women who over use it.


#1118

Amazing is the big one in our place.

“I sent you on that document there, Mary.”

“Amazing.”

I always do a double take when I hear it.


#1119

Because you are amazed?


#1120

A little bit, yes.


#1121

Amazing.


#1122

I’m afraid.

I can’t do that, I’m afraid.

I’m afraid I have to tell you we won’t make that deadline.

Eveyone going around terrified


#1123

We don’t want to stand on the same rake twice :sweat_smile:
