  1. Not my list, I stole it from an Email .. can you add any more????

    A deeply unattractive person.

    Waving your arms around and talking bollocks.

    Sitting round in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a Project
    failed and who was responsible.

    A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything and then

    The process by which people seem to absorb success and advancement by
    sucking up to the boss rather than working hard.

    The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get
    screwed and die.

    * CUBE FARM.
    An office filled with cubicles.

    When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on. (This also applies to applause for a promotion because there may be cake.)

    * SITCOMs.
    Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What yuppies turn into
    when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids or start a "home business".

    * SINBAD.
    Single working girls. Single income, no boyfriend and desperate.

    One who has bleached/dyed her hair but still has a 'black box'.

    The fine art of whacking the crap out of an electronic device to get it to
    work again.

    The rarefied organisational layers beginning just above the rank and file.
    Decisions that fall from the "adminisphere" are often profoundly
    inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve.
    This is often affiliated with the dreaded "administrivia" - needless
    paperwork and processes.

    Entering a fast food restaurant with no intention of buying food, you're
    just going to the bog. If challenged by a pimply staff member, your
    declaration to them that you'll buy their food afterwards is known as a
    McShit with Lies.

    * 404.
    Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message "404 Not Found" meaning that the requested document could not be located.

    Similar to a French Kiss, but given down under.

    That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you've just made a BIG mistake (e.g. you've hit 'reply all').

    A very short skirt, only an inch from the hare.

    The contents of a Wonderbra, i.e. extremely impressive when viewed from the outside, but there's actually nothing in there worth seeing.

    A bath so hot, that when lowering yourself in, you go: "Oo! Oo! Oo! Aa! Aa!

    The bus that arrives at the pub on Friday night while you're in the toilet
    after your 10th pint, and whisks away all the unattractive people so the pub
    is suddenly packed with stunners when you come back in.

    The taxi that arrives at your place on Saturday morning before you wake up, whisks away the stunner you slept with, and leaves a 10-Pinter in your bed instead.

    The invisible device that ensures your safe arrival home after booze cruise,
    even though you're too drunk to remember where you live, how you got here, and where you've come from.

    Your first pee in the pub, usually after 2 hours of drinking. After breaking
    the seal of your bladder, repeat visits to the toilet will be required every
    10 or 15 minutes for the rest of the night.

    * TART FUEL.
    Bottled premixed spirits, regularly consumed by young women.
  2. Some = not new.

  3. Blame-storming is clever...

    And I think prairie-dogging was invented (the phrase, not the activity) by Scott Adams, of Dilbert fame.....
  4. Point Oh F#$k of a second. The time it takes From you realising you just made a big mistake till the point where it comes back to hit you in the head.

    Also known as the time it takes from highsiding till you hit the ground. (Just ask Loz & Vic)
  5. Nahh I had heard the phrase before it was put into a dilbert. but Scott Adams has a very good eye on what the corprate world looks like.
    Cube farm is an other term he has used, But the term "Pointy haired Boss" is defeinately from him.
  6. Nappy - A boss who is allways on your arse and usually full of shit
  7. We got a bloke in the warehouse the guys call "suitcase" cause they reckon they carry him around all day ..
