After a very busy week of unpacking and installing a brand new kitchen, I am now also officially registered in Hamburg.
Sorry if posting has been a bit slow in the last weeks, but my vacation is over next week. On Monday I will start my new job (very much looking forward to that!), and then I will also start thinking about marketing again and put out new posts.
I just found a few new words for the evergrowing vocabulary list of bullsh*t bingo on Yvonnes blog:
Sitting around in a group discussing why a deadline was missed or a project failed and who was responsible.
A Manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, shits over everything and then leaves.
The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get screwed and die in the end.
An outside expert brought in to reduce the employee head count, leaving the brass with clean hands.
Career Limiting Move – Used among microserfs to describe ill-advised activity. Trashing your boss while he or she is within earshot is a serious CLM. (Also known as CLB – Career Limiting Behaviour)
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.
To be exploited and oppressed by your boss. Derived from the experiences of Dilbert, the geek-in-hell comic strip character. „I’ve been dilberted again. The old man revised the specs for the fourth time this week.“
Used to describe employees who are suspected of planning to leave the company or department soon.
Someone who’s clueless. From the World Wide Web error message „404 Not Found,“ meaning that the requested document could not be located.
„Don’t bother asking him . . . he’s 404, man.“
That minuscule fraction of time in which you realise that you’ve just made a BIG mistake.
The fine art of whacking the crap out of an electronic device to get it to work again.
When someone yells or drops something loudly in a „cube farm“ (an office full of cubicles) and everyone’s heads pop up over the walls to see what’s going on.
The process by which some people seem to absorb success and advancement by kissing up to the boss.
I just realised – you better never win at this kind of bullsh*t bingo…
