I guess that means that we're not "Team Players", or that we don't "think outside the box" or "reach for the low-hanging fruit", Perhaps it is indicative of our inability to "touch base", "punt", or "deliver a value-driven solution". Or maybe it just means that we have no "vision statement".

Shit, I wanna punch MYSELF after reading that.

"Reach for the low-hanging fruit" made me think of smuggling plums (a/k/a "balls"), and/or cupping them. Can you do me a favor and never say/write that again?

I don't think they do realize what they're saying.
But I giggle everytime I hear it, and have a strong urge to mutter "teabag". They must just think I'm crazy.

You said "teabag".

I might have to post that comic near my desk at work. I feel that way whenever someone says the word "meeting" around me.

90% of all meetings are shite. Everyone just repeats the same thing over and over, as if to say "Hey, look at me! I know stuff!!". Have you ever seen the video clip that's circulating cyberspace called "Truth in Advertising"? If not, check it out. It's dead-on.

At meetings I hate it when people say "just to piggyback on what Amy was saying..."

I'd forgotten about that one! It's so gross, too. "Piggyback"....EWWWW. Why not just say: "just to gang-rape what Amy was saying...". For fuck's sake.

The problem with "piggybacking" (shudder) is that when someone does that to your idea, theirs is either quite different or irreconcilably stupid, in which case everyone thinks you are the idiot cause they associate the piggybacked B.S. with what you were saying.

I was making tea the other day and my 2 year old asked, "Wea dat, Mommy?" What could I say? "It's a teabag," I answered quietly and hoped she would move on to another subject. Oh no. She asked it about a hundred more times and if I didn't answer she just repeated it louder and louder. I felt like I was teaching her a bad word; one so gross I didn't even want to say it myself, but what choice did I have?
