It is quite apparent that your speech gets affected by the Company you keep!
Or may be the Company you work with.
The choice of words of your vocal speech gets affected to the core. When I worked with Convergys as a Quality Evaluator, as any other work-place, we were all dependent on communicating via email. “Documentation” was the word. Any important update or any relevant Information was downloaded through email. So much so that even the printer icon was being forwarded so that could be installed on individual systems. Once connected through LAN, only one printer could take the print job/command from several connecting computers.
Why I am telling you this is because we had started forwarding almost everything!
- “Forward the chair” or slide that chair towards me.
- “Forward the glass of water”…
- “Forward the head- phones please”
My present boss talks of having “forwarded” through snail mail. I always thought it was sent maybe.
That’s not all. He says “move the screen up” instead of “scroll down”. It’s been 3 years, I am yet to adjust to his lingo.
Late last night just before hitting the sack, I looked around out of the window murmering, “The fog hasn’t posted itself yet”.
So much so for blogging and posting and putting up a post.. I didn’t realize that fog doesn’t post. It gets foggy instead. Well, since I had said that out loud, I heard myself saying it the wrong way- realizing the mistake.
Let me gain some sanity. Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
