 A couple of years back I met a wannabe cockney at a gig (in Hampshire) and the geeza was going proper large with the slang shizzle, nomesane. So much so that when we parted company (he was determined to engage me in convo) he proclaimed "houses, houses". Or rather, "ouses, ouses"

 

Took me a good whlie to figure out that he'd taken 'safe' as a slang word meaning ok, good, salutations, whatever, extended it to 'safe as houses' (probably after stopping at 'safe as' for a while), then dropped the safe as, leaving only 'ouses, in some kind of ass backward mockney anti-rhyming cuntery. 1/10 would not listen again.

"So..."

 

There was some corporate nobby from Samsung (I think) being interviewed on the news a while back, and every answer he gave began with the word "So..." and I don't know why but this really bloody wound me up. I'm detecting it more and more, usually by corporate PR people and young wannabe entrepeneurial titheads on YouTube. Even Liz 'Apprentice candidate' Kendall got in on the act the other day which pretty much seals my loathing of it.

Ah man yeah you just reminded me, a few years back my boss at the time used to do this. I had to go in for some pointless ''meeting'' once a week, whether it was needed or not, and he'd wait until I sat down and then go ''SsssssssssssssssO'' and then just look at me waiting for a response with a really smug look on his face.

All corporate phrases! I was in a "meeting" once - a pointless "team building" thing that I was ordered to go to by the sales & marketing director even though I was absolutely maxed out on a friday afternoon (this was in my old life). This tool said after half an hour of pointless bollockisms "remember, there's no 'I' in 'team'", before I could stop it I replied with "No but there's 4 in 'platitude quoting idiot' ". 

How I didn't get sacked is still a mystery to me to this day.

"So..."

 

I have a client at the moment that does this. In fact it's like he went to the "School of how to talk like a ****", where they tell them this is how they're supposed to speak and then kick them out of the door, infesting our world with gibberish, "i'm better than you", dicks.

 

The minute you start talking bullshit entrepreneur BS to me is the moment i lose all my respect for you. The main issue is, i know this industry far better than most of them, and, not to toot my own horn, probably take home more than them. But because they've decided they're an "entrepreneur", they've also decided they're a step up from everyone else, even though "entrepreneur" is usually just another way to spell "Currently seeking employment".

 

We get enough of them on here claiming to have the next big idea, giving it all the corporate speak BS. It aint gonna fly with me son.

Just keep replying with things that start with "S" and "O".

 

Them: Soooooooo....

You: Sausage Ordinance?
Them: Sooooooo... 
You: Sentiment Orange?

 

etc etc. They'll soon get bored.
