I work in a hospital so our wank words are slightly different.
Things like “Patient First”, “four hours is ours” and “safety moments”
‘Utilise’ instead of ‘use’.

Ringfence that idea
[Clicks right hand fingers into an open left hand]
“Talk to…” (it’s “talk about…” FFS!!)
“Reach out” (totally unacceptable phrase, unless you’re a member of The Temptations FFS!!)
So do we all work in IT management?
I agree that ‘reach out’ and ‘socialise’ are definitely up there. Especially when I find I’m using them myself.
‘Leverage’ too. And ‘FTE’ as a euphemism for a person who is about to lose their job.
Skin in the game

This is a farking awesome thread!
Up there with the ‘Out of the Mouths of Babes’ or whatever it’s called.

used to work with an operations manager that in every meeting he’d say, “conceptually” about a hundred ■■■■■■■ times. usually in reference to a matter of fact, or a set of numbers. THAT’S NOT A CONCEPT, IT’S REAL LIFE ■■■■■■■■.
along the same sort of lines, another operations manager would drop that he worked at toyota and this is how they did it at toyota.
Artisanal. Single origin. Organic. Heritage. Craft. Heirloom.
Deconstruction. Fusion. Gastropub. Gluten Free. Shade grown.
Hahaha. Some woman in a former company of mine would replay to all and write ■■■■ like “Please revert to this email” “revert to x” etc.
Hate to make a typo eh?
Loved the instant replay of that post.
