Based on the amount of times my boss uses the following words and phrases, please know that it would be totally ok if you NEVER used them around me again.
-“Strike while the poker is hot”
-“Reinvent the wheel”
-Discus (in all fairness, he does mean ‘Discuss’ when he says/writes ‘Discus’ but just assume both words are on my list – One of these days, I’m going to do a social experiment where I convince my coworkers to replace the word ‘discuss’ with ‘discus’ for a week or so to see if my boss catches on. It should be thrilling. I’ll keep you updated.)
Just like MTV used to retire music videos from the countdown after a certain number of days (40 maybe?), these words shall henceforth be retired from my own vocabulary. Let it be known.
