Have you heard these stupid sayings? Thread the needle…? In my wheel house…. paradigm shift, push the envelope. When did we start talking like this and take ourselves seriously? Who’s nonsense is this anyway? If you have a hard enough time figuring out the bastardization of the English language when used this way, try the acronym. I wonder how many people in the meeting have glazed eyes and puzzled expressions, but won’t admit they have no idea who’s talking about what…
Half of these sayings have no real meaning. They’re some work place jargon that catches on and multiplies. People start repeating it to sound like they know what they’re talking about, as if they’re in the know and so cool. Would it really kill people to say the three words instead of the acronyms? Are we really that lazy and rushed…….come on get a grip!
We won’t even go into the FB and Twitter crap, that’s just redonkulous . . . with all the lol, jk, kk, lmfao, gtfoomf! Just sayin’
