You call into the dial in before you've opened the meeting.
So you've called in, but haven't associated your number with a name
We use Arkadin as our teleconferencing software and it's great because you can upload your Outlook contacts and it will tell you who is talking based on phone number, which is especially useful when dumbasses forget to put their phone on mute and you have to publicly shame them.
I just had a partner accidently refer to the client as "shorty" in an email to the client, and our receptionist suggest I check out the burgers at Fuddrucker's. Fucking Fuddrucker's!
if it's the same system we run then it's because he forgot his audio key
Make sure you get a milkshake
I'm not going to Fuddrucker's.
Missing out on a great Burger and shake, bud
I can't believe I'm going to Fuddrucker's.
Anyone in marketing/business ops/advertising/agency follow Adweak on twitter? It's so well done if you get it.

Has the incorrect use of "caveat" been discussed?
I work in FinTech so we have mandatory compliance meetings every now and then.
Today the word "extrapolate" was used six (6!) times in a brief exchange between two people.
Not sure if I've mentioned it in this thread, I work for a pretty big retail company and sit in HQ. However, we don't call it "Headquarters" we call it the "Store Support Center." What grinds my gears about that is that they use "supporting the stores" as an argument to why we get literally the bare bones, legally allowed paid holidays. I've heard "It's our job to support the stores, so we have to be open when they are open in order to do that properly."
I've never, not a single time, had to do anything that directly affects the stores.... However, I'll check into this thread on Christmas Eve when I'm diligently supporting the stores.
That's so fucking shitty. About as good of an example of "look at us smart leadership buzz words" as I've ever seen.
Because I'm sure it really eats at cashier Linda that Joe in Marketing may not be in today.
I know where you work

I always wanna punch the person who likes to use the word "bake".
"I really think we should bake that into the current process."
This post isn't fully baked, IMO. Let's level set here, bud.
I started my job a little over a month ago and "deliverables" is our ridiculously overused buzz word.
By the way... I made this to make fun of a friend in a listserv who had a ridiculously over-the-top signature... The one I'm required to use is uniform across the company and pretty standard.
Oh and a big fuck you to all the pieces of shit out there that don't put your phone number in your signature or have zero reply signature.
I know you do that specifically so people can't call you, you lazy fuck wit
yeah fuck those people
Ehh my phone number is in outlook, or you can just page me via outlook you lazy fuck.
***disclaimer if it's an internal email which 95% of mine are otherwise you get my office phone# only**
But if you're not in the same company. ....
Can't do this if they work for a different company
I've never understood why we have to include our email address in our signature. If you're getting an email from me, you have my email address.
I've never thought of it like that. I think it's the formality. That and it doesn't always say the email address, it says your name. If you had to give it to someone, you wouldn't have it as readily available as just scrolling down to a signature?
Thoughts on people that do this

I really don't like when people have some quote in their signature. Like company slogans etc I totally get but when JUST Janice from accounting has ""A road runs both directions" - Russian Proverb" at the bottom of every message, I always think its corny af
Put my disclaimer in there. Had to hop in shower

^at the bottom of an email I got from an upper level manager one time
I could only approve of it if the quotes were ominous and anti-establishment.
"A fish always rots from the head down" - Russian Proverb
"Let us wage a moral and political war against the billionaires and corporate leaders, on Wall Street and elsewhere, whose policies and greed are destroying the middle class of America." - Bernie Sanders
"Freedom in capitalist society always remains about the same as it was in ancient Greek republics: Freedom for slave owners." - Vladimir Lenin
I received an email one time from a woman that put BS/BA in her signature. Congrats on the Bachelor degree, maam
The idiots in my business school basically did all of these things mentioned itt.
i still make fun of anyone who puts MBA in their signature past maybe the first 6 months cause you're excited.
it's on my resume, that's it.
One of the partners here has multiple certifications. She makes sure every damn one is listed in her email and anything else she signs her name on, shit looks like alphabet soup behind her name.
People here do the PMP. I saw a "Douche Bag, MBA, PMP" the other day
