HEhe...I am loving all these :)

My most annoying one is when my boss, instead of "assigning me a task"
"tasks me an assignment". I have no idea why that annoys me so, but it
does! :)

>Just out of curiousity...what are your choices for the most annoying and
overused buzzword used in your office? I have a few words that as a
writer just make me cringe when someone uses them and even worse when
someone wants them in my writing. :) I won't mention them yet, as I am
interested in what you all choose. However, I will admit that I have
"The Apprentice" on in the background as I write this. Talk about
annoying words...spoken by annoying people :)
