    adding the word "just" before telling someone to do something doesn't make it any easier.

    Also, ending any instruction, statement, or opinion with an ambiguously rhetorical ‘...Right?’

    my receptionist says "you know" SO DAMN MUCH...at the end of sentences, in the middle of sentences, proceeding sentences...and when i am asking questions, the answers to which I definitely do not know, it can be a bit frustrating. I have to bite my tongue sometimes when i get an especially surprising answer and I want to say "No I DON'T KNOW!"

    Someone at work asked me if I was a furry. And then told me that they're into "other things". Which sounds awfully ominous.

    My boss and I have been called into a 15 minute meeting with my boss’ boss at 9:45 called “Mandatory Touchbase”. With a short and ambiguous meeting it can only mean that I’m either being laid off, promoted, or transferred to another group.

    There is a great big dead cockroach on the floor next to the window in my office. It has been there for 2 days. None of the men have been around to dispose of it and I can't work up the courage to do it myself. I know it is dead but it is still disgusting. So I am leaving it there till either the little dog eats it or a guy comes around to get rid of it.

    Since it's an early meeting and mid-week, not likely being fired. Good luck though. Let us know if anyone named Bob is there.

    Since you won't be there much longer, you could make a game of seeing how long it stays there and leave it behind when you start a new job.

    Per my outlook calendar, I have two weekly standing "touchbases", one weekly "huddle", one biweekly "lunch and learn", a weekly "coffee call", and one monthly "chit chat". WTF!

    Wait, "chit chat" is actually a business term? hahahahahaha. That's so great.

    I admit that i use "touch base" somewhat frequently when it comes to hounding down clients, because it just seems to make sense and people know I'm talking about.

    Sorry, nothing too exciting to share.

    My current boss is moving out of the LOB and now becoming the head of Technology. I now report to (on paper at least) a schmuck. I mean, he’s not just a schmuck on paper, but one in real life too. It’s just an ‘on paper’ relationship since I’m cast away on some special project and not really doing my day job anyway. And they gave me commitment that at the end of this special project, I’m moving out of my current role and into something new.

    I could do what I did when I left a particularly disgusting apartment complex, I can just collect all the dead ones and leave them in a pile on the kitchen counter.

    First showed up here about three years ago. Introduced by a CEO of one of our joint ventures. It is a multidivisional meeting with 50% of the meeting devoted to open discussion of items concerning all the service lines involved. I like to call meetings, meetings. I should send a decline answer and indicate I will only be attending meetings, inservices, and councils from now on.

    All of this jargon makes me somewhat more comforted in the fact that i am 'below the line,' so I never have to participate in any of this bullshit.

    We have "huddles" at my work. It seems to be a meeting that is 30 minutes or less. Anything longer than that is a full-fledged meeting.
