Yes, we’re guilty too

Remember when ‘LOL’ was actually a really embarrassing thing to say? Fast forward a few years and we’ve now started using ‘LOL’ for real, and emojis became an acceptable, if not complex, form of language; even the weird winky-tongue-out one was deemed OK.

The same cannot be said for these terrible, will-never-be-ok-to-use-but-we-use-them-anyway, marketing phrases that crop up in a high percentage of meetings across the working world.

The popularity of these wildly questionable phrases probably stems from the fact that everyone has imposter syndrome at work, and by blurting out ‘synergy’ or ‘ball-rolling’ in a high pressure situation suddenly makes you sound like you know a thing or two about a thing or two. But never, ever, is there a right time to ‘open the kimono’, unless you’re on your hols, obviously.

So take heed of the phrases below, and pray you never come into contact with any one of them.*

*Yes, we have been guilty of spewing out a few of these, but we have learnt from our mistakes and are sticking to a dignified silence in meetings from now on. OK? Thanks in advance…

– Open the kimono on it

(tell me EVERYTHING)

– It is what it is

– I need it by end of play

(finish this before you go home, basically)

– Let’s synergise

(two heads are better than one)

– At the end of the day, I think…

(my opinion is all that matters.
