Instant business jargon translator

If your clients are business people and your spouse regularly brings home jargon from the office—in other words, if you're me—Unsuck It can help. It's a little bit vulgar, but lots of fun. Next time someone suggests an ideation session and you wonder if that involves a visit to a doctor, enter the phrase right here and discover it's just a meeting. Whew! (Via Notcot.)

Bummer.... I don't have any words to look up! At least not any that it knows... like sileage, or manure, or even holstein. ;)

True, Mom. To piggyback on what you said, we'll have to circle the wagons and come up with a farm buzzword translator.

That site's too funny. Sadly, I have probably heard over half of those jargons...

For 2 corporate people (me- a former corporate gal- turned totally SAHM and my husband- currently still a corporate guy)... this is perfect! Reminds me of the corporate flashcards I bought him a while back:).

As a professional facilitator I'm L.O.V.I.N.G this and thank you for sharing it. I'll be incorporating it into my sessions and sharing with many others.

It's unbelievable how many of these phrases I hear on a daily basis. Throw in the oil industry specific jargon and I am probably speaking a foreign language.

Wow, I am loving this! I had no idea people talked like this... I work in the education field :)

I just looked up 'monetize' and it's there. I see that and cringe every time I sign into Google Blogger...

I was hoping it would have computer stuff too as that's business jargon too these days, but it didn't have the stuff that my husband says that I don't understand - too bad.

Thank you so much! I laughed so hard I've cried and peed my pants, which is alwyas fun. I listen to this nonsense all day long and this will be a welcome release at the office after another ridiculous meeting. You're the best :)
