MOST RECENT LINGO
(1). A not-so-subtle way to tell someone to stop asking if you’re available for a “quick call”.
“Umm…I should be around next Thursday, I think. My calendar’s up-to-date, so just send a meeting request.”
Props to Meg D. for the submission.
(1). Term used while on a conference call, paying no attention to what’s being said and working on something else completely different.
“Oh, sorry, can you repeat that? I was multi-tasking.”
Props to Kevin for the submission.
WELCOME TO CHEESY CORPORATE LINGO
Let’s face it … work stinks. If it didn’t, they’d call it play, right?
So, 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) and finding out that your boss scheduled a last-minute 8 a.m. conference call, what’s the last thing you want to hear?
Well, if you’re anything like us, it’s all that cheesy corporate lingo.
CheesyCorporateLingo.com is our attempt to document how the business world continues to mangle the English language, sapping our time and brainpower with lame corporate speak.
So, if you agree that “irregardless” isn’t an actual word … and if you’re tired of listening to endless business jargon … then CheesyCorporateLingo.com is for you!
… and if you’ve got one of those corporate buzzwords you want to share with the world (or if you’ve got a better definition for one of ours) … submit it!
DON’T FORGET TO VISIT THE CHEESYCORPORATELINGO.COM STORE FOR SOME GREAT CCL MERCH! (ugh…merch? Dude…)
