List Criteria: Only words or phrases you might hear in an office environment.

Anyone who has ever worked in an office, sat in a meeting, hunched in a cubicle all day or spent a day in a conference room forced to listen to a consultant tell you what you're all doing wrong has heard these words and phrases. And they make you angry inside. So angry. Which are the worst? Which made-up, misused, fake phrase/word would you cut off a limb in order to never hear uttered again? Vote for your most hated, and add anything you think is missing.
