    New words for 2006

    My son has excelled today - got this too! Yet again may be everywhere but new to me.

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

    NEW WORDS FOR 2006:

    Essential vocabulary additions for the workplace (and elsewhere)


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

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

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

    4. SALMON DAY : The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to die or be eaten by the bear in the end.

    5. CUBE FARM : An office filled with cubicles

    6. PRAIRIE DOGGING : When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people's heads pop over the walls to see what's going on.


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

    8. 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.

    9. STRESS PUPPY : A person who seems to thrive on being stressed out and whiny.

    10. SWIPEOUT : An ATM or credit card that has been rendered useless
    because the magnetic strip is worn away from extensive use.

    11. XEROX SUBSIDY : Euphemism for swiping free photocopies from one's workplace.

    12. IRRITAINMENT : Entertainment and media spectacles that are annoying but you find yourself unable to stop watching them. The J-Lo and Ben wedding (or not) was a prime example - Michael Jackson, another...

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

    14. ADMINISPHERE : The rarefied organizational 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.

    15. 404 : Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error Message "404 Not Found," meaning that the requested site could not be located.

    16. GENERICA : Features of the American landscape that are exactly the same no matter where one is, such as fast food joints, strip malls, and subdivisions.

    17. OHNOSECOND : That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you've just made a BIG mistake. (Like after hitting send on an email by mistake)

    18. WOOFS : Well-Off Older Folks.

    19. CROP DUSTING : Surreptitiously spraying too much perfume while
    passing through a Cube Farm.
