In Passing

If you’d wondered where all that bad American business-speak went...

Pure Dilbert Dept.

...it’s alive and well in the British government:
“The Met has a dress code policy which states that only approved corporate badging may be used...”
(That’s a government spokesman.  Talking about the police department.)

Things may get bad here, but I still can’t imagine any of our corporate apparatchiks allowing such buzzword-laden jargon into any public statement.

Pity the report says nothing about the reporters’ reaction.  Hope it was derisive laughter.

Reminds me of the "Case of the Mondays" dialogue in Office Space ...

Office Drone: "Has anyone ever told you 'Sounds like someone's got a case of the Mondays'?"

Construction Worker: "What? No, man! Hell no! You'd get your ass kicked if you said that."
