You're way behind the curve.

It's 'Rightsizing'.

OK, you win - that is the more hideous word.

It's All Good--Bob Dylan

Talk about me babe, if you must
Throw on the dirt, pile on the dust
I'd do the same thing if I could
You know what they say, they say it's all good
All good
It's all good

Big politician telling lies
Restaurant kitchen, all full of flies
Don't make a bit of difference, don't see why it should
But it's all right, 'cause it's all good
It's all good
It's all good

Wives are leavin' their husbands, they beginning to roam
They leave the party and they never get home
I wouldn't change it, even if I could
You know what they say man, it's all good
It's all good
All good

Brick by brick, they tear you down
A teacup of water is enough to drown
You ought to know, if they could they would
Whatever going down, it's all good
All good
Say it's all good

People in the country, people on the land
Some of them so sick, they can hardly stand
Everybody would move away, if they could
It's hard to believe but it's all good
Yeah

The widow's cry, the orphan's plea
Everywhere you look, more misery
Come along with me, babe, I wish you would
You know what I'm sayin', it's all good
All good
I said it's all good
All good

Cold-blooded killer, stalking the town
Cop cars blinking, something bad going down
Buildings are crumbling in the neighborhood
But there's nothing to worry about, 'cause it's all good
It's all good
They say it's all good

I'll pluck off your beard and blow it in your face
This time tomorrow I'll be rolling in your place
I wouldn't change a thing even if I could
You know what they say, they say it's all good
It's all good

I love being told to work smarter. If I were any smarter I wouldn't be working there.

The problem is that you guys hear these phrases you don't like, but you do nothing about it. Just think outside the box and come up with new phrases.


I guess I can update "it is what it is"

OOPS, that didn't go well. Guess I'll see everyone in the "rightsized" line. <sigh> "it was what it was"

If you live near Charlotte and listen to sports talk radio, you know that coach John Fox has cliched the term "it is what it is".

Synergy

I hate that.

Images of robotic drones working in seamless mindlessness while perfectly intertwined in automated drudgery.

Six Sigma (and most 'project methodology' disciplines) provide a plethora of these buzz-phrases that seem to have been created to annoy. Additionally ...

"I don't have the bandwidth." or "Do you have the bandwidth?" When used to describe how much 'free' time somebody has (what are we? Machines?)

Yes and no. (Love that one - consice and to the point)

Let's take this offline. (i.e. I don't want to discuss it here and not in the presence of these people ... even though it probably affects something like their 'bandwidth')

Getting granular and drilling down (oh boy ... here we go)

24/7 and giving 110% (sigh ... the story of my professional life ...)

The best thing since sliced bread. (Really? That good, huh? This one always make me roll my eyes because I can thing of a few hundred thousand great things that seem like a better ummm - 'benchmark' than sliced bread for measuring something which is good.)

Better to apologize later than ask permission first (and this is why I always 'ballpark' projects WAY high ... so that I'm not doing too much apologizing down the line)

Housekeeping/Downsizing/Rightsizing ... when it is used to describe impending layoffs due to bad business decisions.

Seamless integration (I'm thinking this is an urban myth)

Let's do lunch (ummm - let's not)
