    Default moving forward.....

    Can we ban this phrase from the workplace? In fact from everywhere

    Yesterday I counted it about 8 times

    I also heard that I'm expected to be 'a more rounded animal'

    Good Lord

    I hear my husband talking about reaching out and touching base with people on the phone. Those should be banned as well. I caught him even saying it to an old friend he'd not spoken with for ages. I don't think the friend contacted him again.

    It's obviously why I'm getting paid cock all

    I hear these people all the time, talking nonsense and not actually working, and they are all driving around in big German cars and wearing expensive watches

    I need to implement some blue sky thinking, make sure I'm singing from the same hymn sheet and maybe I can be seen as important

    "Moving forward" is one of my pet hates. What they mean is "in future" or "from now on", so they should just say that. There are lots of these buzzwords and phrases used in business, such as "leverage" as a verb, "touch base" and others. Have you ever played "bullshit bingo"? It's where you have a meeting and you pick a word or phrase and you get points for every time it is said.

    I'll always be just a another subordinate because I don't think I could ever talk like that.

    I think you should manage your expectations.

    One of the favourites of our lot is "geographies". What they mean is regions or territories.

    I have to manage expectations at work, it's basically me telling customers that what they think they need (which is actually what they want) isn't as important as what they actually need and I know best what they actually need because it's my fucking job to know that.

    I need to fully utilise my skill set in order to procure a position that is worthy of my intellect and usefulness. It had better be well paid as well ffs.
