Any line management, middle management, or corporate email that goes out has the f**king word “synergy” in it.  I hate that goddamned word and it’s to the point where we use it to just make fun now.

Can we leverage some resources for that?

What reserouces can we leverage to get that done?

Are we leveraging all of our resources properly?

Maintenance.

As in “File Maintenance,” “Server Maintenance,” or “Building Maintenance.”

@Billsgirl:  Holy crap I had no idea this was a thing outside of our office!  It’s insanely annoying.

Here’s another one being thrown around corporate boardrooms too much: “Why don’t you reach out to…so and so.”  Or “I will try to reach out to so and so for ADVISE”…LOL…Or “well I would try to reach out to so and so”…. Also the use of “drill down” to isolate a problem… To me they both indicate that someone other than the responsible person will be getting an ass reaming.

One of the managers (not mine) is always saying “Let me share this with you” when she means to tell you something.  As if she is giving you the gift of information.  If you are going to “share” something with me it better damn well be cookies!

In my office it’s “please advise” or “huddle up”.  I have a supervisor who’s always asking to “huddle up” over some stupid thing.  It gives me the heebie-jeebies!
