I once received an email and the sender signed off with a toe-curling, 'If I can be of any further assistance, please reach out to myself'Mr. Dazzle wrote: ↑Sat Feb 20, 2021 10:12 amMaybe they're just doing it to badly annoy you.Potter wrote: ↑Sat Feb 20, 2021 2:13 amYep business speak does my head in, it's used by people to try and pretend they're high flying execs or something, but have you noticed the rest of their vocabulary and ability to use language/grammar is very limited?
"We're in alignment..."
"We'll take that offline..."
Then they send you an email or report with apostrophes scattered at random, split infinitives, random superlatives and bad speelings that make your teeth itch.
(that was on purpose btw)
Edit. The one which gets my goat, probably the only one which gets my goat TBH (other than "expresso") is using "myself" and "yourself" completely inappropriately. I don't think I've ever used either word other than to say "I did it myself" or similar. Somehow people seem to think that saying "yourself" rather than "you" makes em sound more professional. It just makes you sound like a div IMO.
