More Annoying Shit - Semantics and Associated Items

More words and phrases that make me want to punch you:

"Let's unpack this..."
"Don't you worry about ____. I'll take care of _____."
"Will it scale/Is it scalable?"
"Let's not boil the ocean here..."
Reach out
Put a pin in that...
Let. That. Sink. In.
My ask is...

Using the term Porn for non-pornographic things...
  • Food Porn
  • Nature Porn
  • Building Porn
  • Pressure Washing Porn

Been looking at too much Twitter...
This is something that feels rude and annoying...

People 👏that 👏add 👏clap 👏emojis 👏thinking 👏it 👏makes 👏their 👏point👏 stronger

When I see this it has the same effect as clapping their hands in my face, which would earn you the opportunity to carry your teeth in your pocket on the way to the emergency room.

It is, however, acceptable practice to put [clap clap clapclap] in front of every occurrence of Texas.

And another reason I stay the hell off Twitter... :-) You need to start buzz word bingo at work, with the winner getting a day off (assuming you win)!

@angus: Always loved that scene ion Pee Wee's Big Adventure...

@ONFO: We did buzzword bingo at an all-employee meeting at the Old Company.
When the President took the mic and started his spiel, we had a bingo after about 8 minutes.
