Say what?

If you work in a corporation, you must attend meetings. Here are some random office space quotes collected by my writer pals. Needless to say, none of us work at these places anymore.

  • The light at the end of the tunnel was actually an oncoming train.
  • The best way to resist temptation is to completely give in.
  • It was customer’s love fest.
  • We are pimping the fruit to India.
  • My push back radar is on high alert.
  • This is an assumption of an assumption.
  • It fails ugly ugly.
  • We are all doomed.
  • Decisions made here are fluid in nature.
  • We are going to open the kimono and share a peek

Anything interesting you've heard at meetings?

Are we doing this as a 'real' release or are we doing it because our biggest customer went 'Waaaah'? Because, you know, if it's just a 'Waaah' release, I really shouldn't have anything to do with it.

Since the project is already late, let's make it more late by adding [this] to it. That way, when management asks why it's so late, we can tell them we added [this] and, even though it's late, it looks like we did something.

We need to have a meeting to discuss what we're going to talk about in the pre-meeting meeting, you know, the meeting before we have the big meeting.

I'm sure there are more, but these are just a few of the stupid things I have heard.
