    My boss' fiance is an engineer the Seabrook plant, so he's in the nuclear family too.

    I was super-excited to read this thread, but now I'm not even excited at all.

    I don't think people who say that can help it. I think it's some kind of genetic thing. Everyone on HGTV talks like that. Two people come on HGTV waving their arms and shouting into the camera, "we just changed a light bulb, and we're so exited about it!"

    I had a boss who started every other sentence in staff meetings with, "To be honest with you..." That was code for "I'm lying through my teeth."

    At another job, one of the IT guys would say that he would "effort" to fix something by (insert time here). Never heard anyone else use that word as a verb.

    Does anyone still use that old excuse "It wasn't on my radar screen"? Translated as, "Uh, I wasn't paying attention."

    Sorry, gotta go. It's time for me to "pivot" and change the "narrative."

    It seems to me that superlatives are a bit out of control these days. Everything and everyone is extreme, super, massively something. Regular people are rockstars, superheroes, geniuses. Lazy parrots who don't think for themselves.
    Nobody is special if everybody is special.

    I have never heard “open-kimono” before, but that is colorful and vivid, and I’m stealing it.

    my favorite thing to do when someone delivers a breathless, super excited message is to listen with feigned intensity and then pause at the conclusion... they are waiting for approbation... instead, squint and ask 'is there an action item in all of that?' and gesture a broad arms wide and hold.

    I ordered the Super Deluxe burger at the drive thru and when I drove away discovered they gave me the regular burger. I went from being super excited to super bummed.

    I was on a call last week discussing an IT project in its infancy. The project manager threw the following phrase around quite freely and I had the urge to projectile vomit:

    "Let's get some T-shirt sizing estimates for Task A, Task B, etc"

    "T-shirt sizing"????? HAHAHA! How utterly ridiculous. If anyone needs to get off my lawn it's that project manager!

    I am just kidding though... I think it and it would be fun to do and it WOULD be my favorite... but, I would never ACTUALLY do it.
