Stay tuned for the tick tock on how it goes down. If he gets too far over his skis the low hanging fruit will be too granular to see

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.

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.

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.

"Socialize"

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

"Make sure we socialize this new action plan to all pertinent stakeholders."

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....

"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)

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.

Haha, I use that all the time. But first I am going to broach the subject with them. Wink







Sentiment without action is the ruin of the soul.


Help, I'm having premonitions of future flashbacks.

I just got done reading this thread when I received an email that began...

"Actually, I have one more ask..."

Sheesh.
