    Annoying terms used in the workplace

    The overuse of paradigm and misuse of parameter.

    Opportunity as in, "it looks like meeting your transaction goal was the real opportunity last week", when what you really mean is "you didn't make your goal last week"


    What annoys you?

    "Can you finish the report by the deadline?"
    "I can try, but I'm still waiting for data from Jack and Jill and then to compile it..."
    "Ok, but do we have a commitment?"

    "So has everyone read these new procedures?"
    "Yes..."
    "Do we have a commitment?"

    "You made a commitment to me, why did you not follow through?"

    My last workplace always told everyone we needed to grow as a team. Grow in business. Grow with goals. Grow grow grow.

    I got sick of hearing that. I felt like saying "No thanks. I'm done with puberty & don't want to go through it again." just to be funny.

    Chain of command.

    If I hear that one more time, I'm going to wring somebody's neck with that chain.

    make the customer happy" I hate this phrase mainly because people who are happy just are and people who are grumpy old meanies are never going to be happy... and I don't want to make people happy, I just want to complete tasks.
