Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

Fantastic!!!! Someone at another branch just sent an email to my entire division with the following sentence:

"This should be completed prior to 1st shit production."

I seriously have the sense of humor of a 13 year old so this is right up my alley! Plus, it sort of justifies one of my biggest fears around the office - that one day I'll send out an email without rereading it first and I'll forget the O in "count" or something like that and look like a complete jackass.

Re: The Most Painfully Annoying Business Jargon

Off line has two different meanings that get intertangled with each other. Before the days of the interwebs that phrase (offline) existed. We used it in the military all of the time when you wanted to talk to a superior or a subordinate in private about something that is nobody elses flippin business. When you are standing in a formation you are in a freakin lines so requesting to talk to someone offline simply meant out of formation and away from everyone else.

I do not mind the way that it is used today because it still holds the same basic meaning "in private".

The rest of that corporate jargon though, does piss me off.

That's the greatest thing I've ever read.
