    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Essential NEW WORDS FOR 2006 - Additions to the Work-Place Vocabulary.

    testICULATING. Waving your arms around and talking Bollocks.

    BLAMESTORMING. Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.

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

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

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

    CUBE FARM. An office filled with cubicles.

    PRAIRIE DOGGING. 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. (promotion also applies - there may be cake.)

    MOUSE POTATO. The on-line, wired generation's answer to the couch potato.

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

    ADMINISPHERE. The rarefied organisational layers beginning just above the rank and file. Decisions 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.

    404. Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message "404 Not Found."

    These are universal. I have not experienced any of them in the past few years since retirement. I pass on to give a few words on retirement. Retirement is the best job I ever had, may you all get there one day.
