Channeling My Inner Language Nazi

| 6 Comments

This may sound strange coming from someone who actually keeps a list of office-related neologisms, but I really really hate the pseudo-word "mentee" (which, surprise, doesn't even show up on webster.com unless you pay extra for their super-ginormous online dictionary).

The word is "protege." Get it right.

Damn French. We're lucky it's not "mentueur".

I've got one for your 'list':

NOOP - An utterly useless co-worker. (AKA, bag-o-meat)
