My life at work - the trials & tribulations!!

Interesting work acronyms

AFLO
Another Fucking Learning Opportunity. The project post mortem

Asshole Of The Year Award.Lots of contenders for this one. Wonder who should get it - old age or continued failures.

AKUTA
A Kick Up The Arse.What i'd like some of my vendors to be.

BURP
Bankrupt Unemployed Rejected Person. Another one for the vendors.

ATNA
All Talk No Action. Definitely the trait for members higher in the value chain.

AWOL
Absent Without Leave. This is what i'd like to be. Only problem is that i have way too many leaves available.

BDU

BHAG
Big Hairy-Arsed Goal. The polite version 'Big Hairy Audacious Goal' doesn't have quite the same ring to it (no pun intended).

CADET
Can't Add, Doesn't Even Try. We know who this is - righhtttt - challenged with numbers

BIAT
Boss Is A Twat. No nonsense here... one of the more direct modern workplace acronyms.

FIAT
Fart In A Trance. Every organization has a person who seems to be perpetually in FIAT mode. Most of us experience being in this state at least a couple of times a week, especially Mondays after heavy weekend, or while captive in corporate presentations or boring training sessions.

FUBAR
Fucked Up Beyond All Recognition. My state of mind a month ago.
