Default Office Jargon


A BBC News Magazine article got some new jargon to join 'Thinking outside the box', 'Out of the loop', 'Blame Storming', Get your ducks in a row', 'Singing from the same hymn sheet'

Decending flightpath of headcount.
Sexagesimal theorising = watching the office clock
We're sunsetting that idea now = killing it
The juice ain't worth the squeeze
A seagull manager = flies in, makes a lot of noise, dumps over everything, and flies off again
Herd the dinosaurs = get the deadwood out the way and let the A-Streamers get on with some real work
Einstein Worker = knows everything, everyone knows all his theories, but no one truly understands what they mean
Get it, get off it, get on with it = understand you are wrong, stop sulking, get on with your work
