In my business, I deal with an extreme array of individuals from Corporation Executives to Mechanic Shop owner, trucker, heavy equipment operator, and shop mechanics. The conversation can be professional or crude and everywhere in between. Recently I have enjoyed the communication for those in the shops, great people, wonderful humor and at times I am amazed. I hear words in conversation that to be truthful have not heard in years.  Word example: Pecker, Nob, Tweak, just to mention a few. I will let your mind wander how those words got dropped into the conversation.

 

Question for the day: What words have you heard lately that you have not never heard or used in a long time?

A few that irk me.

My company uses the work "asks" instead of "requests."

Also "solves" instead of "resolutions." Just sounds dumb.

Those are bad.  So much horrible business speak out there.  I went to MBA school and, while I loved my classmates and remain friends with many, they are some of the worst with this stuff.  My "ask" is that the cut it the fuck out.  The ideal "solve" is I never hear these words escape their lips again.

I love my company, but I could go on and on. Pain point is another. 

Assuming it starts sometime ago with management and it just trickles down.
