    So you go out of your way and get shit done....

    "why didn't you come to me first?!"

    If a man speaks in a forest and there is no woman around to hear him, is he still wrong?

    Overheard boss to secretary when handing her a document:

    'Would you please project manage this to completion'.

    What's wrong with 'Would you please copy and distribute'???

    I used to work in Management Consultancy (Change Management). Talk about lingo and clichés!

    had a conference in dallas two weeks ago or so, and the COO of my region addressed everone on the last day:

    "i heard there was an awards dinner last night. congratulations to those that won, but in my eyes, you are all winners".

    :fp: :fp: :fp: :fp:

    good thing he didn't address everyone at this dinner because i was half in the bag and would have laughed my ass off and probably lost my job.

    This one's been in the parking lot for a while, but I think that the appetite might be there again to leverage this thing and maximize buy-in. Figured I'd strike while the iron is hot.
