I BELIEVE YOU
'open the mouth'
all shit in-jokes
e.g computer cunt, mug cunt, dog cunt. Whatever fits the topic of conversation. Spotify cunt is a favourite of mine.

people saying overriding when they mean overarching
basically every managerial commonplacity anyone's ever thought of
blah blah blah isn't just another buzzword
i work in a marketing office - if i listed the buzzwords like that here i would never ever stop.
it's a perfectly cromulent word
as in, ''I'm sick of getting emails about webinars''.
I assume it's some kind of small mammal. I was in a meeting once and they used the phrase ''going forward'' about a dozen times in ten minutes. I made a point of mentioning it afterwards coz my boss had started saying it and she uses much less corporatespeak than she used to now :D
Seeing as it does actually means something, and saves you saying longer phrases like 'web-seminar' or 'conference on the internet', or whatever.
Meetup (just for normal bloody work meetings)
(The last one is the best)
Felt a right dick.

Pronounced to rhyme with 'beverage'...... aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! You're from Reigate you dick! Not Manahttan!
i am being proactive about this one
Leave me alone
Dont talk to me ever again
this is the current one that is doing my head in right now, as in:
"I touched base with the client about that this morning"
"Can we touch base about this again next week?"
- what!?!?! if you mean can we SPEAK about this again next week then fine, if not then there is no way I'm doing anything that involves touching your base I don't care how senior you are!
YEAH. EVERY 3 DAYS. FROM YOU #BUNCHOFTWATS
Every morning I come in and I've got like 20 spam emails asking someone called "Norma [redacted]" if they want to go to ANY NUMBER of weird conferences / seminars.
HOW DID THEY GET MY EMAIL????? Even before I started I had them. How do they know my surname? WHY DO THEY THINK I'M CALLED NORMA?
Don't even ask.
Slipped in "Content is king" into a conversation the other day.
I killed him.
PTs, OCs, BLBs, TLBs, AVP, SSP and NVU are all getting a lot of use at the mo. On the bright side someone asked if there was any AOB in a meeting last week.
Sometimes we surprise ourselves with how few actual words we can use in a conversation whilst still making sense to each other. The worst topic for this is digital skills and training.
Thank fuck they didn't actually work for us.
is so obviously a big pile of wank that I'm amazed anyone used it in a non-pisstaking sense.
Different frogs, different times.
ways of working
Someone explain why this sounds better than "day to day"...
We don't have kitchens, we have "break out areas". Makes me want to plan my own break out area by smashing my window and plummeting 18 floors to sweet escape from this.
That was a bit dark, sorry.
Can you 'link in' with Andrew about the Interest Rate 'piece' before 'close of play'?
Or in an email, before COP
