    i am not a big fan of "voluntold" in the workplace, particularly when served with a smile. though i suppose I am happy to still be employed /voluntoldable so there's that.

    Frame. Not like used in this forum but "I will frame the conversation for you".

    All of this reminded me of this classic New Yorker cartoon...

    I once went to a mine site workshop where we were all encouraged to "think outside the box" to generate some crazy ideas some of which would hopefully end up not being crazy.

    EXCEPT, the guy running it then went on to say, you focus on this area. You focus on this area...etc.

    So to be clear, within the constraints of this box you've just set, you want us to think outside some other box. Genius.

    As time passes you will realize that your body is not symmetrical.
    Some more than others, but it will show with the years.
    I still love symmetry in design and concept.

    If the word is being misused in the business world, well that sucks!

    My beef with symmetrical is that it does nothing symmetric doesn't.

    Slam or any variation of the act of getting verbally 'slammed'.

    Incredibly over used in the news.

    "Microagression" makes me think of an all-midget heavy metal band.

    "Circle back" is one expression that makes anyone appear to have a two-digit IQ. I know, I'm a terrible person.
