about

Jargon, clichés, euphemisms . . . lies. Ever wished there was a phrasebook to help you translate all this endless bullsh*t? When your boss asks 'Can I have a quick word?' (real meaning: I don't have anything to discuss, I just like putting the fear of God into you) or an estate agent describes something as having 'incredible potential' (real meaning: absolute shithole), you'd better have Luke Lewis's essential new book to hand. And if you need a way to spin your latest work disaster, here are numerous tried-and-tested porkies to help you out. Based on the incredibly popular BuzzFeed series 'What People Say vs What They Mean', this in an indispensible - and hilarious - guide to interpreting secret codes, little white lies and complete and utter bollocks. Examples from What People Say at Work vs What They Mean 'Anyone fancy a cup of tea?' - Offer strictly limited to the three people in my immediate vicinity. 'This is beyond my remit' - I can't be arsed to deal with this 'Team player' - Has basic social skills, is not an outright sociopath 'Let's park this for now' - Let's never mention this again 'We wish her all the best in her new job' - Burn in hell, traitor
