I've been getting a (relatively) huge spike in hits to the Office Lexicon from google.co.uk searches for "office jargon." Can anybody explain this to me?
And as long as I'm talking about the Office Lexicon, I may as well add this entry I've recently heard:
Pull A Scotty - To tell your boss that a given (difficult) task will take X time, but you finish it in X/2 (or X/5, or even X/10) time. From Scotty on ST:tOS, who would tell Captain Kirk that (say) regonculating the warp core retroincavulators would take days, but would complete the task in hours because the survival of the ship depended on it.
