    OT: some office humor for those who work in the cubes:)

    Hopefully this will make someone else laugh... I can't do it, too true to life.

    NEW WORDS FOR 2002 - Essential additions for the workplace vocabulary

    BLAMESTORMING: Sitting around in a group, discussing why a deadline was
    missed or a project failed, and who was responsible.
    SEAGULL MANAGER: A manager who flies in, makes a lot of noise, craps on
    everything, and then leaves.
    ASSMOSIS: The process by which some people seem to absorb success and
    advancement by kissing up to the boss rather than working hard.
    SALMON DAY: The experience of spending an entire day swimming upstream
    Only to get screwed and die in the end.
    CUBE FARM: An office filled with cubicles.
    PRAIRIE DOGGING: When someone yells or drops something loudly in a cube farm, and people's heads pop up over the walls to see what's going on.
    MOUSE POTATO: The on-line, wired generation's answer to the couch

    Yuppies turn into when they have children and one of them stops working to stay home with the kids.
