MOST RECENT LINGO

Pig in the Python

 

(1). A sharp statistical uptick.  Like every stock price when we thought Trump wasn’t crazy.

 

“So, last quarter’s net surplus seems to have been a bit of a pig in the python.  After reviewing the annualized numbers, we’re basically flat for the year, mostly due to the drop-off in sales in the northeast region thanks to Larry’s crumbling marriage.”

 

Props to Kevin for the submission!

 

Geofocus

 

(1).  Your assigned region of coverage.  You know … what they used to just call your “territory”.

 

“Mike, we’d like your geofocus to be the southeast corner of Lincoln and Barrett.  That falafel guy’s been creeping into the area and we need to remind everyone that’s still gyro country!”

 

Props to Matthew for the submission!

 

CORPORATE LINGO DONE RIGHT, SORT OF...

After getting up at 5:30 in the morning, commuting for 90 minutes on two trains (while sitting next to that guy who decided to hit the breakfast burrito truck on the way to the station), is there anything worse than finding out that your boss scheduled a last-minute 8 a.m. conference call? Well, if you’re anything like us, it’s having to endure all that cheesy corporate lingo you’re going to be blasted with.

 

It makes you wonder: Do these guys even have a clue as to what all that corporate jargon means?

 

And, perhaps even more importantly: Didn’t these guys go to college?

 

A Corporate Jargon Dictionary For The Rest of Us

 

CheesyCorporateLingo.com is our attempt to document how the business world continues to mangle the English language. Why is this website important? Simple – because deciphering corporate lingo saps our time and brainpower.

 

Imagine how much more productive you’ll be when you are quickly able to interpret John in Accounting’s abuse of the English language! This site is the decoder ring for the new millennium.

 

So, if you agree that “irregardless” isn’t an actual word … and if you’re tired of listening to endless corporate jargon … then CheesyCorporateLingo.com is for you!

 

… and if you have a term that’s close to your heart and you want to share with the world (or if you’ve got a better definition for one of ours) … submit it
