bizspeak can bite me!

ok this is a pet peeve. some people must justify getting paid to do very little by using big words to explain simple concepts. or worse yet- using a whole mess of small words when just a few words would do.

"let's do that sooner rather than later"
sooner is rather than later dumbass (that's "dum-bass", not "dumb ass")

"let's go ahead and push the button on this"
jean luc picard said it much better- "engage!". say that in a meeting full of suits.

"let's think outside the box"
yeah, let's actually be creative by not using this crappy cliche.

people should model their speech after the way clint eastwood writes movie scripts- aim for brevity and relevance. so start thinking outside the box before you open your mouth, and try to do it sooner rather than later.
