Buzz Words..............

>But when you use all those "buzz-words" you are supposed to sound so much more intelligent, knowledgeable and professional.

We do it all the time at work. "Competencies", "partnering", "interventions", "behavior modification"..........ad infinitum.

It's sort of like twins having a secret language. But, the end result is always the same, nobody knows what the hell we are talking about. (Not even us, most of the time!)

Others use acronyms. The military is absolutely the worst at this. AWOL, etc. If we had stopped the use of acronyms in the military, we would have been out of Iraq years ago. Its like having a secret code without actually having one.
