New Words For 2005

I hope no one has posted this before, if so I am definitely out of the loop.


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 that's going on. (This also applies to applause from a promotion because 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 of them stops working to stay home with the kids or start a "home business".
>
STRESS PUPPY - A person who seems to thrive on being stressed
out and whiny.
>
PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE - The fine art of whacking the cr*p out
of an electronic device to get it to work again.
>
ADMINISPHERE - The rarefied organisational 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. 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," meaning that the requested document could not be
located.
>
OHNOSECOND - That minuscule fraction of time in which you
realise that you've just made a BIG mistake (e.g. you've hit 'reply all')
>
GOING FOR A McSH*T - Entering a fast food restaurant with no intention of buying food, you're just going to the bog. If challenged by a pimply staff member, your declaration to them that you'll buytheir food afterwards is known as a McSh*t with Lies.
>
BEER COAT - The invisible but warm coat worn when walking home
after a booze cruise at 3 in the morning.
>
BEER COMPASS - The invisible device that ensures your safe
arrival home after booze cruise, even though you're too drunk to remember where you live, how you got here, and where you've come from.
>
BOBFOC - Body Off Baywatch, Face Off Crimewatch.
>
BREAKING THE SEAL - Your first pee in the pub, usually after 2
hours of drinking. After breaking the seal of your bladder, repeat visits to the toilet will be required every 10 or 15 minutes for the rest of the
night.
>
JOHNNY-NO-STARS - A young man of substandard intelligence, the typical adolescent who works in a burger restaurant. The 'no-stars' comes from the badges displaying stars that staff at fast-food restaurants often wear to show their level of training.
>
MILLENNIUM DOMES - The contents of a Wonderbra, i.e. extremely impressive when viewed from the outside, but there's actually nought in there worth seeing.
>
MONKEY BATH - A bath so hot, that when lowering yourself in, you
go: "Oo! Oo! Ho! Aa! Aa! Aa!".
>
MYSTERY BUS - The bus that arrives at the pub on Friday night
while you're in the toilet after your 10th pint, and whisks away all the unattractive people so the pub is suddenly packed with stunners when you come back in.

Around here, we call that style of walk the "Hourly Shuffle" (only hourly employees seem to walk that way)
