Default Position Elimations ....?

Dont you just love the Americanisms we have in society today ?......Not !

The title above refers to "redundancies , people who have lost their jobs in a financial institution in the States !!!

What other words or sayings do you hate in the workplace / every day life ?

I detest.........

"Stand out"......er, no pal the word you're looking for is "outstanding" !

"Let me just run this by you".......whats that supposed to mean ?

"Pro-Active.................It implies that there is no forward thinking or planning and when in fact just getting out of bed and going to work was being "Pro-active"' !

And the worst one of all and which is sooo annoying, is any non Italian saying the word "Ciao" at the end of a phone call or when saying good bye to someone

What does that saying really mean? What is the point of having a cake if you are unable to eat the bloody thing?
