admit it, you want to smack me one, right?

I hate it when somebody says that. Think outside the box.

Like when you're in a meeting. Just want to tackle them. Drag 'em down by their face mask.

who cares about the 15 yard penalty.

so, go ahead.

Think outside the box.

I dare ya.

"Think outside the box" was on George Carlin's list of phrases that needed to be retired immediately. And that was over 10 years ago!

Another phrase on the list was "don't go there". How I wish it were legal to take a 12 gauge machine gun to the next person that I hear use that one!

A phrase that gets used to death in my own office is "Beta test". Why must we have the word, "beta" in this phrase? Was there an Alpha test before the beta? Why can't we just TEST the damned thing?

FYI - the first time that I heard the term, "Beta test" was by a software manufacturer in the 1980s. This term was used for a test market period where only a small segment of users were given new versions of software. Basically it meant that you were a Guenia pig. You'd get cheap versions of new programs to use and your feedback would help them rectify problems with programs before they were released on the mass market. Pleae! drop the word "beta", if you only need to say "test".

That's just the tip of the iceburg, you're not pushing the envelope. I don't mean to beat a dead horse, but I think you should go back to the drawing board and bite the bullet. I know it's easier said than done, but better late than never.

(I hit the nail on the head, didn't I?)

Well, be that as it may ...

Years ago, I was producing a video that dealt with assertiveness training. The script had a character telling someone else, "well, be that as it may ...".
This sounded like the hokiest thing that you could imagine anybody saying. All through the production phase - from the script, to the shoot to the final edit - everybody associated with the production argued that the phrase should be taken out because NOBODY talked like that.

10 years later, I seem to hear someone use that phase everyday. I still hate it!

"Branding", as it use in any sort of marketing/advertising. Nobody used it until one day, (forget the particular day, but it was about 15 years ago), then everybody had to start using it. We have to "brand" our logo. blah blah.




of course, if i were a cow, i wouldn't much like that term either.

Not exactly corporate-speak, but when did "how are you?" replace hello (or down here, hey!)? Sure, if it's a friend you have not seen for awhile, it's ok, but really, does the girl at the drive-through really care how I am? I have been so tempted to answer "hungry!" but I value my food's safety too much.

Likewise, when did "no problem" replace "you're welcome"? The waitress brings me a glass of water. I say "Thank you". She say's "No problem". That's the way it goes 9 times out of 10 where I'm at.

Business speak is a plague on the English language.

I've heard the word 'decisioning' repeatedly, as in 'They are decisioning that now.'. You know, because the word 'deciding' or 'making a decision' is so passe.

I resent when people think the limits of my cognative reasoning is a border with a rectangular and cube-like boundary.

How about "let's work smarter, not harder." I find downsizing to be a stupid word as well. Maybe it's just me.
