Up To Date Business Language

I received this list today and was reminded of my 24 years in the corporate world.  I wish I had known these terms then!

BLAMESTORMING - sitting around in a group discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed and who was responsible.

SEAGULL MANAGER - a manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, messes up everything, and then leaves.

KEYBOARD PLAQUE - the disgusting buildup of dirt and crud found on computer keyboards.

OHNOSECOND - that minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you've just made a BIG mistake.

PRAIRIE DOGGING - when someone yells or drops something loudly in a "cube farm" (an office full of cubicles) and all the co-workers' heads pop up over the wall to see what's going on.

PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE - the fine art of whacking the daylights out of an electronic device to get it to work again.

Thanks to Doris for sharing!
