Soft Block

 

(1).  Something you build into the system to warn those morons in the business that they are about to bring down the company by punching the wrong keys.

 

“Oh, don’t worry about that … we’ve put a soft block with a dialogue box before letting you change those kinds of account parameters.  Because, you know, everyone reads pop-up dialogue boxes.”

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?

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
