My manager until recently overused “In this/that space” to such a degree, I would count them in meetings. His record was 34 in a 30 minute meeting that only actually ran for 25 once it started. 34in 25 minutes FFS.

Also
“Let it marinate for a while”

Oh man, great thread.

We now have to have regular ‘customer huddles’. WTAF a customer huddle is isn’t clear, because the accompanying powerpoint (because of course powerpoint) was full of [email protected]
