I find it particularly irritating when in council meetings people who have never worked in the private sector in their lives use business speak. They generally get it wrong, out of context and look\sound awful when doing it.
Anyone on here play "Bullsh1t Bingo"? It's rather funny, and along these lines..
Good article (although granularity got a mention 2/3 times...never heard that one) not sure why incentivise made the grade though?
I have a pet hate of any Brit uttering the 'step up/step up to the plate' or any other baseball/top ten dance craze movie of the week rubbish.
110% has also irked me hugely, I'm glad there are still enlightened people that grasp percentages!
"it will affect there learning" this one really gets on my nerves - normally after i have said i will not unblock a website!
"Adopting a holistic approach" is one that gets on my wick. I have a strange urge to murder the person who utters it in meetings.....
Since good ideas are often referred to as golden, what do you call an idea shower which actually produces good ideas?
OMG jamesb you are so bad!!! lol
Apparently one our schools goals is to "delight the stakeholders"
What is wrong with common or garden language that everyone can understand?
Not mine but is worth posting.
"I, for one, am excited to have pinged you offline about the corporate jargon engagement as it pertains to Web 2.0 and social networking. I thought the take-away was crisp and actionable, and very leverageable for our time-critical human-capital management push to be launched soon.
Rather than offshore our best practices, we must execute on them, virally, wirelessly, securely, and with excellence and innovation. Online collaboration, m-learning, and SaaS have allowed us to engage, embrace, and extend our efforts, as have reengineered customer relationship management and teleworking via Twitter, SMS, iPhone, and social networking. But we must relentlessly google for answers, fedex them, skype our colleagues, webex our learning, and knowledge management, while scanning the environment for new sustainable solutions, that are, of course, innovative, creative, orthogonal, and lateral.
In conclusion, in this post-9/11 world, we have to hope, and we have to change, and we have to deliver on that hope and change, and preserve those deliverables for our future and the future of our planet. And our children. Remember the children. And the avatars.

Shout-out to Doug: Thanks for the heads-sup and kudos but WTF? RTFM, ROFL and see the first para! (ooh, nw gt gen-y n hr 2)
Agree with the jargon being useful if not overused, expanded beyond its original use, or most typically, to obfuscate or hide from responsibility . But then again, I like English and American English speakers in particular because it's really very permissive."
