    Most Hated "Buzz" words or phrases....

    I have a couple of new guys in the office and they speak in circles all frickin day long...some of my least favorites (add your's if you're with me).

    - moving (going) forward.
    - band width
    - buying into
    - bridge i.e. "is this the same bridge used weekly for the conference call?"
    - level set the AOD's
    - outside the box
    - etc. etc.

    What ever happened to just speaking plain freaking English in the office?

    More than I can list....

    "We're all about that."

    "I feel the need to give something back."

    "Maybe we should talk to that subject."

    Re: Most Hated "Buzz" words or phrases....

    " At the end of the day " is my least favorite because it is used a lot by smarmy politicians who are trying to sound intelligent.

    Also, "leaving money on the table" is another personal non-favorite.

    Another one that bugs me is "at this point in time" which was coined by one of Nixon's people I believe, instead of just saying "at this time".
