The PC brigade and its "ACCEPTABLE" word

Do you use the saying/word they come out with, Humph not me

Chair Lift are now , " personal elevation devise"

Brainstorm, Thought Shower

Blackboard, Interactive Whiteboard !!!!

Gay !! means carefree and happy to me, a super word spoilt by them

Partner!!!, a BUSINESS contract, I have a wife, not a partner, but thats a disguise to mask a same sex relationship, IMHO

Chairman, Chairperson or Chair

What gets your goat with the PC brigade [:eek:)]

The latest in use in Hospitals, etc, is: 'Service User'
You're no longer a patient but a 'Service User' apparently because the word Patient could be demeaning

Positive Discrimination.

A way of giving unqualified people jobs just to satisfy the pc brigades quotas.
I could go on but I might get banned, seeing as Dave is back

(By the way Dave I hope you had a good un.)

Can you be any more homophobic?

Political correctness is different from tolerance, neither of which you are showing.

Far from it, but each to their own i guess.

Both words management speak and utter rubbish.

If its not PC correctness, which appears to be the new word for buzzwords, so the overpaid and underemployed middle management can spend more time waffling, rather than getting on and doing.

Heard a brilliant piece on radio4 at friday teatime, which was asking is the PC Brigade abit like the fire brigade and then did a brilliant sketch using camberwick green fire service, very very funny.

Bit like the Americans who used to say that someone was full of spunk if they showed lots of energy or outgoing......

The hours youre kept waiting even when you have an appointment makes "patient" the watchword, I had spinal surgery and a month afterwards was given a 10am appointment and didnt get seen until 4.30pm! Service user my arse[:D] Is a dead person at an undertakers a service user as well[:D][;)]

Back to the thread...........what dont I like about PC? Anything or word that comes after it I guess!

If you hear words like that on a regular basis you really should try the bingo-like game that we've been playing for years.
It's correct (PC?) name is 'Buzzword Bingo' however to all and sundry it is usually called 'Bull**** Bingo".

Instructions and sample cards can be found here:

(just change the **** to a well-known four letter word that rhymes with bit[;)])

Makes meetings fly by [:D]
My favourite piece of management rubbish seems to be missing though "Blue Sky Thinking"
