One of the things Farmer Ross and I have in common with other modern day farmers is our day job. In addition to all our farm chores, we both work full time jobs. We straddle the line between country living and the hustle and bustle of corporate America. We get up with the sun, feed cows, goats and chickens, fight commuter traffic to our jobs, put in our eight hours and then turn around do it all in the reverse order. While the whole process can be exhausting it certainly helps keep us well rounded. We get dressed in our work clothes, but seldom leave the farm without stray pieces of hay tagging along for the commute. A work week can include meeting our bosses and clients and then coming home to meet the local veterinarian for vaccinations.
Recently Farmer Ross and I were joking about the funny things people say in the office. We were making fun of the vocabulary of corporate America and how you can string together a bunch of fancy corporatese jargon and while you may sound smart, what you actually say can be totally meaningless. So, I thought it would be fun to see how I could add a few dorky office terms to regular farm conversations to make them sound way more important. I also included a farm translation to help you cut through the BS. I hope you enjoy! I sure had fun playing with the words, but I think I will be leaving the cliche office jargon at the office! I don’t think the goats and other farm critters would be impressed!
See, just by adding a few corporate vocab words you can dress up farming to sound fancy and very important 🙂 Just wondering…what corporate lingo really gets under your skin? Mine in nimble.
