@sourcandy: I’m pretty should my boss has actually said “go ahead and circle back to me about how we can put a system in place to avoid this issue going forward.”
I actually just heard myself use the word touch base. Ugh…I realized I used it because I was asking someone for something they may not want to give me. I think that’s why people use these phrases, it’s a fear of being direct and shielding yourself with words.

Lmao. I had never heard “please advise” at work until the new guy started working. He says it too much along with “please verify.”

@PatientBee: Such a way to beat around the bush when really all he is saying is “you deal with it and fix it without bothering me”.

@OctBride-2012: Oh lord, aren’t we alllll Synergistic (has to be capitolized even in the middle of a sentence). My company even created a data portal called Synygy. Shoot me now.
My biggest pet peeve whether in an overly lengthy email or a “speech” is the phrase “At the end of the day”. My boss will use it 5 times during a 30 minute teleconference. At the end of the day I want to go home and be left the $%&@ alone!

@MrsNewDay: Yup, one of my pet peeves! Honestly, I kind of despise the lady in general, but she constantly brags about how literature is her specialty, yet she can’t even format a simple email. I received one yesterday that was much like what she usually sends:
I Enjoyed Your Presentations Yesterday. I Shall Be Holding Office Hours From 2-4 Tuesday. Thank You.”
She also writes super passive aggressive emails all the time. LOL

“Meeting” and “brainstorm”. It usually equals “waste of time”.
