Friday Funny: Geeky Office Slang

09.14.07 | Comment?

I’ve been here in the Valley since 1989, so I’ve heard alot of these things through the years. But recently I was sent a list that compiles some of the more entertaining geek slang that’s been in use over the years. A couple of them were new to me, they might be to you too…

Assmosis – The process by which some people seem to absorb success and advancement by kissing up to the boss rather than working hard.

Blamestorming – A group discussion of why a deadline was missed or a project failed and who was responsible.

Dorito Syndrome – The feeling of emptiness and dissatisfaction triggered by addictive substances that lack nutritional content. “I just spent six hours surfing the Web, and now I’ve got a bad case of Dorito Syndrome.”

Ohnosecond – That minuscule fraction of time during which you realize you’ve just made a terrible error.

Swiped Out – An ATM or credit card that has been used so much its magnetic strip is worn away.

If you’ve got others you like, leave them in the comments. Hope you got a little chuckle, I sure did.
