Junk Drawer July 31st: Office Speak

wasssssap buttercups!??!?!

 

i work in the tech world and there's always a bunch of tech speak that gets thrown around:

 

"do you have the bandwidth to attend this meeting?"

"my hotspot signal is weak, need coffee"

"i caught him glazing"  sleeping with yo' eyes open at the computer screen

"i need to reboot"

"that guy/girl is 404"

"oh great, i can't wait to go into a blame-storming sesion"

"i'm not gonna sell this, this is crappy chip and salsa"  chips being hardware and salsa being software

"did i say that?  you sure?  if i egosurf, will it show up?"

"i bet you that guy is a mouse potato at home"  this is ALL Bedgers...hahahah

"i'm hiring a plug and play today"  newbie hire that does not need training...aka Not Prez

"i have an announcement, everyone please prairie dog from your cubes"

"i screwed that up in an ohnosecond!"

instead of saying You Got Served at our work, we say You Got Uninstalled!!!

and the one i'm using today, "I need to decompress after today's stressful meetings"

So how does everyone else decompress? 

-  after a hard day at work

-  after a vacation

-  after an intense BEdging

-  after a fight

-  after a breakup

-  after a crazy event

-  after getting brp'd at Bedgeball

i usually go play bball, then take the family out to drinks and dinner...then Group Chat...Group Chat is hot...email me if you want in...BUT only a few will get in based on a test....

it would also be funny to hear office speak you use/hear...i know there are a few in the medical field that are pretty funny.  I did overhear Ben. say "everytime i go to the bathroom, i like to twitter to the last drop..."

 

junk on junkin' on

peace.  stay cool.  forever.
