What on earth is a "bonding" session.... The word "orgy" springs to mind.



David Report 5 Dec 2012 13:49

You'll do for me

Clearl,. Bob. Enough said. Back to the level playing field to kick the ball uphill towards the onion bag. You know ;-)

IPG reminds me of "face to face"meetings where the "EXPERT" is outlining something, usually financial........and continuously uses the word "OBVIOUSLY"

when to my mind if it was THAT obvious.........why is he trying to explain it?



GlasgowLass Report 5 Dec 2012 13:17

Over use of the word... Amazing.
Both the contestants and the judges on Strictly Come Dancing and The X Factor are the worst offenders .

" This is amazing".
" You are amazing"
" The public are amazing"

It's not a phrase, but it makes me cringe when people wiggle their finger in the air to make inverted commas.

To be honest, I'm with Prickles on this one - more important matters to be concerned about.

Isn't that right, love - at the end of the day? :-D


Paula+ Report 5 Dec 2012 10:15

Thank you so much for all your contributions I am thoroughly enjoying reading them. I must be a right old curmudgeon as I agree with everyone, even those I had not previously thought of.

Keep them comimg. please.

Went to a meeting a few years ago and the so called 'consultant' was introduced and asked to share with us all the roadmap he had prepared.

After a few seconds of speaking he was interrupted and asked to explain what this roadmap thingy was supposed to be as we hadn't come across one before. He went into some detail explaining that it was a novel idea setting out all the various activities that would be necessary to achieve our goals.

After about fifteen minutes he was interrupted again with the comment, 'Oh, you mean a Plan, why didn't you say so in the first place - it would saved us four manhours sitting here listening to something we already knew'

A phrase me and my daughters still use 25 years later. :-D
