    Diffusion of responsibility - if it's everyone's problem, nobody steps up to take it on.

    In other words - when the office runs out of heating oil that no-one has ordered while I've been away, I'm not sharing my plug in radiator and/or knowledge of alternative water heating.

    My personal favorite:
    "Come to Jesus meeting" used in the workplace. They used that today. I generally don't care about religion, but it should have no place in the workplace (unless you work for a church or something overtly religious.) I would've told HR, but HR is the guy that said it.... yeah...

    "Weary" instead of "WARY" auuuugh I see it all the time now. When people say "EGG-zit" instead of "ECK-sit" for Exit.

    I'm sick of hearing about Charlie Sheen and the bubble-headed-twit, Lindsey Lohan. I like the alternate meaning of QFT that Metismomma provided earlier. They need to Q-F-T and go snort some more cocaine!! Loser-whiner-crybaby-crack-headed-jackasses.
    I learned a valuable lesson with the first steer I sent to slaughter. I should have named him Hamburger and not Snookers.

    To be fair, in a lot of cases that's a regional dialect.

    Today has been a briliant case of "a little knowledge is a dangerous thing." My boss is being rather pedantic on things he knows very little about. It's actually kinda funny to ask questions and then watch him flounder.

    Well that is interesting! I say "EGG-zit" and never thought anything of it. Maybe it is a regional thing - though, Kentucky isn't to far away from Ohio!
