Sigh

Life in the corporate world:
 
We had a meeting today, and somebody used the term "vernacular."  Somebody else said "I don't know what that means."  So, in an effort to call out the closet Lebowski fans, I said it means "the parlance of our times."  Nobody laughed.

I assume you have played "bullshit" bingo in corporate meetings before. Text messaging is the tool to use.

Words like "synergy", "vernacular", and "traction" all get serious bonus points.

Maybe you should serve White Russians first to loosen them up...

What kind of place do you work at, anyway?!

It was like they had no frame of reference.

Sounds like Emma when she lost the Geography Bee by shouting, "Irkutsk!" and no one knew what she was talking about.

I am deeply saddened by this revelation, but your mission is clear - you need to arrange for a screening of TBL in the conference room. ASAP!
Tell them it's training for possible restructuring.
