Work Vocab

These are some of the working vocab you might find useful in your everyday work. Some of you might witness these everyday...

For those who don't, I really do envy you!


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

ASSMOSSIS
The process by which some people seemed to have success and promotion by kissing up the boss's ass.

SEAGULL MANAGER
A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, shits on everyone and then leaves.

SALMON EMPLOYEE
A worker spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get screwed and die in the end.

OHNOSECOND
That minuscule fraction of time in which someone realises that he has just made a BIG mistake.


Are you any one of them? So how many of these have you witnessed? Well, I would say I have seen most of them and they never ceased to amaze me everytime!

Have a good day being a Salmon employee!

Guess you are still facing problems from your boss and colleagues? Time to move on?

hahahahahahah! What a coincidence..... i have just been thru a blamestorming....errr brain storming session.

by the way, brain storming according to the Hongkies is "Kno Jaan Tong". Sounds weird? How's your Cantonese interview? Hope it went well

suituapui said...

LOL!!! I see you're conducting an intensive English lesson too...

Since you feel like a salmon employee, it is time for you to move on else you will have more missions impossible from your boss and colleagues.

I think the 'ohnosecond' is the one that most of us can relate to.

Life for Beginners said...

Ooh, I am terrified of all them "blamestorming" sessions. A couple hours later, we are no wiser and all that time is wasted with so many negative emotions evoked. Aiya... :P

eiling lim said...

Anon: Wow... Now I know my blog has the power to bore people... roar!!!

The Gunner: I guess that you've faced it sometimes. Me too.

Life for Beginners: You are so right. I hate those blamestorming sessions. Completely waste of time.

TheGunner said...

oh yes... and when it happens, that usually is a very long second....

~Thinke®~ said...

ROFL... swim baby swim~
"oh no... i just got myself in a sashimi plate..." LoL

eiling lim said...

The gunner: Maybe 5 seconds!

Thinker: Yeah I'm the grilled salmon at TGI Fridays.

Foongpc: No problemo.
