I wouldn't let anyone do to me what I've done to myself

That would be one of those situations where I would get the stink eye for laughing out loud during a "serious" meeting.
Wouldn't be the first time either.
My last contact with "corporate speak" was when I worked at the cannery. We were owned by Bumblebee Foods out of California and when they showed up for a project meeting, the bullshit got deep quick.
Be careful when following the masses. Sometimes the M is silent.
|Shit don't |
Let's see if we can solution that.

My last contract in the corporate world did not get renewed. I think maybe it had something to do with my tendency to mock the bullshit that was spread so thickly during meetings in the conference room.
A mind is a terrible thing.
OP...Want to REALLY flip out? Attend a Military briefing. Nothing but acronyms and overused, ridiculous phrases.
The one that got me at my last job was “opportunities.”

I'm on my HOA board. (Not really by choice; long story...)
There's a guy on there who's been drinking the corporate Kool-Aid for several decades. He's fairly high up in a larger corporation. Listening to him talk during our meetings is a chore. He still thinks he's in the conference room at work.

This seems to be a new one creeping in where I work.

We need to be change agile as we navigate the new company structure roll out.

Cabinetry, price point, functionality, rain event, family unit. Some of these were used in a tv series featuring home remodeling.
If my house has cabinetry instead of cabinets, does that mean I have tiletry on the bathroom floor?
Rain event? It doesn’t rain events where I live. It rains water. Merchandise has prices.
Keep a tablet and pencil handy during meetings at work. Deduct IQ points from speakers everytime they use a bullshit word. See who wins the IQ race to the bottom.
A customer on a conference call today asked us for a "deep dive failure mode."
I hope I didn't get caught snickering....
Support our troops, and our veterans.

You guys are awesome. I’ve heard most of these. But a few are new. I’m gonna use them and get a promotion
These go to eleven.
"Dropping" is one the really gets me and it seems to be creeping in everyday conversations now.
Its use is a little confusing: "Our new product will be dropping in two weeks, so get ready for the roll out rush." How can we be dropping our product line but rolling it out also? (yes, I know DROPPING in this context means introducing but its use in this manner is stupid)
"Para ser libre, un hombre debe tener tres cosas, la tierra, una educacion y un fusil. Siempre un fusil !" (Emiliano Zapata)
How about "net new", as in some functionality that didn't exist before? I mean, wouldn't "new" work all by itself?
Is that on the dashboard? Let's do some teambuilding on that. The customer is our compass.
You never know...
I've got some ideas, but let me bubble them up and see what comes back.

Haha, I use that all the time. But first I am going to broach the subject with them.
Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.
Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.
Only in an insane world are the sane considered insane.
Some people listen to the noise of the world,
And some people listen to the quiet.

I just got done reading this thread when I received an email that began...
"Actually, I have one more ask..."

Whenever I hear or read "stakeholders" I think of Mormons.
