Anon to Kim Jon Il (#1)

People who don't 'do'. The implicit understanding that the more senipor you get the more you have 'people who do that for me'.... Consulting is full of bright and capable people who could do great things for their clients, only their pre-occupied with moving through the ranks to a position where they don't actually do the work.

Bernie Madoff to Mr Cool (#8)

Yeah pyramid selling works - it made me $64 billion. Worked just dandy...

...for a while until the feds busted me. Now I'm in the pen - anyone wanna be my pen pal?

chameleon to Bernie Madoff (#9)

ha ha ha...agreeing with all that - it HAS to be crushingly painful descriptors and non existent words...you know...

'soup to nuts' , 'blended analysis', 'processual' (yes really !) and of course the classic bingo ones we all know and love/hate....

jeez - nothing worse than you meet someone that then uses those glib, crap phrases in social situations.....eek...i'm a chameleon and that even makes MY skin crawl.....
