You have seen it in your own workplace, the unstoppable march of the jargon jockey somehow bamboozling their way up the ladder with their meaningless bollocks, and if you haven’t, then it’s probably you.

- Does the following sentence have any meaning?
“Going forward we need to engage our focus 110% on new business and ride the paradigm shift, we’re going to experience a lot of push back so we need to take it to the next level internally, reach out externally and squeeze our SLAs.”
a). “No, it’s complete bollocks”
b). “I see some synergies between our organisations that we should exploit”

Mostly b’s – You’re a cunt
