How about every "report" being dubbed a "matrix"

LOL. My current supervisor actually doesn't talk this way. Everything for him is in terms of a football game

LOL. Sort of.

You're moving the ball downfield, getting those first downs, but let's get some more points on the scoreboard. Let's turn some of those first downs into touchdowns.

Don't try to take this project on on your own. Follow your lead blockers

Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

Ok I pick up my cell to call home and the office phone starts to ring so I hang up and pick up the office phone but no one is there. This happens 3 times and I start getting ticked that someone keeps hanging up on me when I realize I'm calling the office number and not my house hanging up on myself.

Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

Catch twenty-two.

It's an all-around term but my department just LOVES to use that constantly, sometimes 2-3 times in the same sentence.

Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

Oh, and the head of my department says, "If you want to maintain your salary-retention program... HARHARHAR."

For those who don't get that, he means your job.

What kind of douche says stuff like that?
