    I have issues with co-workers spewing business shite out their gobs such as 'thinking outside the box', 'touching base' and being a 'team player'.

    I do like 'Brain Dump' though. Another way to describe 'Brainstorm'.

    You know the one that really pisses me off?

    "Keep me in the loop."

    Don't know about a loop, mate, but you're perilously close to the farking noose.

    Hehehe, there's quite a senior bloke within the Defra electronic communications bit who came out with that one. Still have a little chuckle about it now and then.

    Hehehe, brain dump.

    "Keep me in the loop."


    I once misinterpreted this and locked a colleague in the toilet.

    Somebody wrote something today about "Veterinary Inspectors working within various spheres" or some such nonsense.

    What are you talking about you idiot!? Have the vets taken up zorbing or something? If you mean "field" or "area", then say that. You don't have to come out with a word that doesn't really mean anything to try and impress people.

    Myself and a fellow 'boss' actually started logging the cliche's then started trying to make each other laugh out loud in meetings by coming out with the most silly terms whilst speaking.

    Some other classics.

    All trying to eat from the same cake or is that :pie:

    another feather in your cap

    back in the rat race

    back to the grindstone

    blue sky view

    bring down the hammer

    can't make an omlette without breaking any eggs

    fighting too many battles on too may fronts

    finger in alot of pies

    all guns blazing

    go the extra mile

    hit the floor running

    honey trap

    however you cut the cake or agin :pie:

    left hand doesn't know what the right hand is doing

    looking for your next meal ticket

    make hay while the sun shines

    move the goalposts

    on the receiving end as well as the giving end

    one swallow doesn't make a summer

    over egging the pudding

    re-inventing the wheel

    robbing Peter to pay Paul

    singing from the same hymn sheet

    Strike while the iron is hot

    the proof of the pudding or :pie: is in the eating

    throw some ideas in the melting pot

    throwing it at the wall and seeing if it sticks

    time and tide waits for no man

    too many chiefs not enough indians

    too many cooks spoil the broth

    window in your diary

    you pay peanuts you get monkies



    There's plenty more that actually get used all the time. The fun we have!

    :)

    We didn't keep a colleague in the loop once and he got upset and took his bat and ball home!

    well, i can't access the forum from work any more so i'll let you draw your own conclusions vis a vis my opinions on my superiors :angry:

    words cannot express how much i hate shit like this.. in particular, "touching base" and "going forward" :grr:

    "Strategic" seems to be a current buzz word when somebody needs a pointless adjective.

    How about "taking forward delivery"?

    "The Delivery Partners Policy Team (DPPT) is taking forward the delivery and enforcement of animal health and welfare for the Department. It leads on two key areas of work."

    People in our Department even seem to think it's clever to use rubbish management-speak to address the public.

    The best is when there's a disease outbreak and at our 'bird tables' we discuss what the 'battle rhythm' will be.

    farking gibberish.

    Who has the most moronic boss..........

    I do. No question. If I go quiet on the forum for a while, please contact Staffordshire Police on 08453 30 20 10, and have some bail money ready. Seriously. :grr:
