If I say "yeah, Ive just overtaken 2nd place" will that dupe them?

Management/consultant speak has always annoyed me, but the OP was not alluding to that. So does someone want to start a new thread on the worst management/consultant speak they have come across?

One that really annoys me is; "Lets run it up the flagpole and see who salutes it."

What about 'I have to saaaaaaaaaaaay' ..before someone (normally a woman) makes a point..about anything..

'Im sorrieeeeeeeee but'.........(one of carol malones favourites!)

'In actual fact'...as opposed to what?..a 'ficticious fact'?

'And I was like'...pause to pull a face....'noooooooooooooooooooooooo'

'And its kinda like'

'Can I get' as opposed to 'can I have...we dont live in America..so knock it of eh!!

'Go figure' (see above!!)

'Lush'...popular with fat 50 year old women who like Robbie Williams..
