>I used to have problems too. Now I only have "issues".
And nevermind whether it's a "problem" or an "issue," I bet there are a hundred companies out there willing to offer a "solution." The company I work for no longer provides software or services. Oh no, only "solutions." Argggg.
When we make changes to the softw...er, I mean solution, it is "QAed," which is a lot like being "tested."
One more thing that drives me batty is to be called a "resource."
