============================
LOL,

I thought it was because you were tired of hearing it, since you thought of the times it was referring to you.

I thought it was a good one, since too many times it refers to me.

I thought Goofy's "fail" was in response to "take our country back" that it was not a Phrase he was tired of hearing, which didn't seem to fit with what I know about goofy.

Now that I think about it, I think the "Fail" was just a word he's sick of hearing, like you said. So this time I guess the whoosh is on me.

Delta

As in "I and too stupid to realize that 'change' is a one syllable word, so I will use the two syllable word 'delta' in its place."





I heard it again today. I attended a division meeting today to see if they were going to be hiring, and also because two of the big bosses came out from the mothership. The head of the entire division was talking about pricing pressure from our competitors (which is unheard of as far as I knew), and I asked her what the pricing breakdown was from the competition.

She said, "The delta is not in the product pricing; the delta is in the lack of service they are offering." She went on to talk about some heinous examples of competitors not having employees who could have even basic product discussions.

It was a good answer, but I had to restrain myself from reacting when I heard the word.

Someone else chimed in with 'value-added' and 'thought leadership', which I'm also getting sick of hearing.

The "on my heart" nonsense is something I've just been hearing in the last year.

It seems to be used in a connection with some decision one has either prayed about, or one which has been communicated to the person directly by God.

I hear it a lot, from adults of all ages, and I don't ever go to church, so it is something I hear just out and about.

Warrior.


Prayer warrior. Social Justice Warrior. Everybody's a forking warrior these days.


Siht. You're not a warrior unless you kill people in hand-to-hand combat.

The Warriors was a pretty good cheesy B-grade movie from 1979. Worth renting on Netflix. Great Joe Walsh soundtrack at the end "In The City".


Minor spoiler: A street gang gets falsely accused of murder. They have to "fight their way back home" to Cony Island. Competing street gangs all have "themes" like all dressing up as baseball players or whatnot. Total cult classic.

"Warriors...come out to PLAY-AY"

But I digress....I love that Joe Walsh song.

In other news my husband was awarded "employee of the month" today. He doesn't work at a fast food joint, this is as a senior level engineer at a Fortune-500 corporation. He thinks it's kind of funny. Getting a good parking spot is supposed to inspire him to work harder. He already works about 12 hours a day. We're just shaking our heads and going "whatever".

Circle back.


"Once I have confirmation, I'll circle back with you."


Then there was the upper level manager who sits near me, who called someone back to say she was "circling the wagons." Um, no.

This word, I do not think it means what you think it means. It needs a social media time-out so everyone can reacquaint themselves with its true definition. Yesterday, a friend said that it's become code for "privileged" and I agree, though you could also substitute "lucky" a lot of the time for better accuracy.

And if this is a repeat on this thread, apologies for not paying better attention. [insert predictable joke out not being hashtag-blessed with good reading comprehension skills]

E.g., We'll be partnering with another department in order to deliver a value-added client experience.
