This was sent to my manager by a client, and my manager forwarded it to me. lol....enjoy!

BLAME STORMING
Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was missed or a
project failed, and who was responsible.

SEAGULL MANAGER
A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on everything, and
then leaves.

ASSMOSIS
The process by which people seem to absorb success and advancement by
sucking up to the boss rather than working hard.

SALMON DAY.
The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream only to get
screwed and die.

CUBE FARM.
An office filled with cubicles.

PRAIRIE DOGGING.
When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm causing
people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on. (This also
applies to applause from a promotion because there may be cake)

MOUSE POTATO.
The on-line, wired generation's answer to the couch potato.

SITCOMs
Single Income, Two Children, Oppressive Mortgage. What yuppies
turnintowhen they have children and one of them stops working to stay
home with the kids or start a "home business".

STRESS PUPPY.
A person who seems to thrive on being stressed out and whiny.

XEROX SUBSIDY.
Euphemism for swiping free photocopies from one's workplace.

PERCUSSIVE MAINTENANCE.
The fine art of whacking the [#@!$] out of an electronic device to get
it to work again.

ADMINISPHERE.
The rarefied organizational layers beginning just above the rank and
file. Decisions that fall from the "adminisphere" are often profoundly
inappropriate or irrelevant to the problems they were designed to solve.

This is often affiliated with the dreaded "administrivia" needless
paperwork and processes.

404.
Someone who's clueless. From the World Wide Web error message "404 Not
Found," meaning that the requested document could not be located.

OHNOSECOND.
That minuscule fraction of time in which you realize that you've just
made a BIG mistake (e.g. you've hit 'reply all')

WOOFies.
Well Off Older Folk

CROP DUSTING.
Surreptitiously farting while passing through a cube farm, then enjoying
the sounds of dismay and disgust; leads to PRAIRIE DOGGING

Excellent post Vamp!

You may also look to Wally (from Dilbert) for how best describe your mundane activities. Once he took credit for copying millions of ones and zeroes to a portable storage device. You got it - he simply saved a file to a floppy.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere
