Sorry, What you were looking for is not here.
PAY OUR BILLS
(1). To blame something completely on a colleague that you probably had as much to do with as he did.
“Paul totally threw me under the bus on that call this morning! He was the one who forgot to order more K-Cups, not me! And what the hell are we having a call about K-Cups for anyway!”
(1). The awkward discussion you have after a pitch with a prospect to figure out why you didn’t win the business (read: why you suck) so you can “do better next time”.
(2). The meeting that happens after a big project is completed, where everyone gathers round to discuss who will be the scapegoat for everything that went wrong.
“Listen guys, doing a post-mortem is a solid way to figure out what we did right and what we did wrong. I mean, Jerry dropping the F-bomb a few times didn’t help, and Lisa, breaking down crying in the middle of the meeting when your GoToMyPC froze probably wasn’t great either. You know what, on second thought, maybe we don’t need to do this…..Jerry and Lisa, can you come to my office for a minute?”
