"Let me just run this up the flagpole for you..."
"Let me run that past you one more time..."

I ask you, why?

"Can I get" rather than "May I have"

and

"Would of", "Should of" and "Must of"............... where "of" is being used instead of "have".

Do they not teach grammar in schools these days.

It was never my best subject at school and is probably still my weakness in writing / speach Sad

Having just joined a (US-based) project team I am delighted to know that I have been 'on-boarded'.
Is this some sort of torture induction for newbies?

Better that than being water-boarded

Ahhh, corporate-speak. Such a rich seam of annoyance...

Where I work they don't just have meetings. They have stand-ups, sit-ins, brown bags, chalk-talks, town halls, whiteboards, scrums, kick-offs, think tanks... Projects have 'task forces' and 'control towers'. And, of course, there's on-boarding. Somedays I wonder if I'm going slowly insane... Wink

So, going forward, we've got to push the envelope, think outside the box, do some blue sky thinking and take a helicopter view.

After gathering the low hanging fruit first we've going to have to put our shoulders to the wheel, keep our ears to the ground and with the best foot forward look to the future.

I want everyone to give 110%, it's not going to be easy but at the end of the day, we are where we are.

We had a range of basic products that sold consistently and generated plenty of sales/profit, marketting referred to them as 'cash cows', perhaps they were milking the customers instead. Grin

Heard a new one today:

Someone on TV was talking about a new report on something or other (can't remember what it it is..
Anyway in his reply regarding what will be done with the data, he said something to the effect of "when we have studied the DNA of the report we will blah, blah, blah........" .

DNA???? what the H*** is he on about?

I suppose they'll all be on the bandwagon now, DNA this, DNA the other.

Ah, that explains it. I noticed an email today from one of our directors, referring to "brown bag" sessions. I have no idea what that means, though I suspect I'll find out in due course. Tongue

Just googled it, and apparently it's the term for an informal lunch-time meeting where no food is provided.....hence the brown bag for your own sandwiches etc.

What a wonderful world we live in!

What happens if your bag is white, blue or any other colour?
Do you have to go to a different meeting? Grin


"I'm having a pink bag session with TG this lunchtime." Grin

We had a new manager who announced at a team meeting that there was a brown bag meeting coming up and asking who was going.
Before anyone could say anything my colleague Rick just said "f*ck that, its my lunchtime. Its bad enough having to spend time with this lot when I'm paid for it, I'm not doing it when I'm not".
The rest of us agreed with this sentiment and that was the last time that idea got raised!
