    "Have you climbed Snowdonia?"

    It's Snowdon. The mountain is called Snowdon. Snowdonia is the range. Why do so many people get this wrong!?

    I saw a kid in the school I work at using 'ygm' every other word in an email. It upset me a little bit when I figured out what it meant ygm

    Trials and pilot schemes are out, and everything is now a 'pathfinder' at work. The latest addition from the corporate speak bods.

    Not so much a phrase, but when people preface what they're going to say with "Let me be clear:". What it translates to is - 'I'm unable to express my opinion in an eloquent manner and therefore this is my cheap way of demanding your attention. It also makes me sound authoritative and that I know what I'm talking about with minimal effort." Whatever. Fuck off.

    Very much so. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind whatsoever that I am in complete and total agreement with you on this matter.

    "Longest pole in the tent" has infected my workplace recently. As in "we need to get more resource on that deliverable because it's the longest pole in the tent (it holds everything up)"

    While we're at it, using "resource" interchangeably with "people"

    And "deliverable"

    Basically my office would be better if no-one ever spoke

    Frankly that sounds horrible,  maybe you should go on a cleansing spree of psychology.  Ie make yourself feel better by murder.

    I sat down with the new HR guy a few weeks ago and he said something so absurd (Something like 'Lets run it up the flagpole and see if the cat will lick it) that I actually couldn't comprehend what he was saying.

    I sat their mouth open staring at him. When he got my attention back I said

    "What the fuck did you just say?"

    Everyone else started laughing.

    Referring to kids as 'little pickle'. When 'pickle' should clearly be 'shit'.

    At a place where I used to work (which shall remain nameless) I got so pissed off with all the office gibberish I set up Outlook rules to automatically deliver emails containing obnoxious phrases like "going forward" (and many others) directly to the trash folder.

    Funnily enough, even with that little suite of Outlook rules busy auto-binning a good proportion of management emails, I never missed any email that was genuinely important.

    Which proved something that I'd always suspected, i.e. that people who use phrases like that have nothing of any real substance or import to say. They could go on holiday permanently and the company would keep ticking along perfectly well without them.
