“Let’s Take That Offline”

My favorite corporate speak from a previous job is the phrase:

Which usually means:

My other favorite is:

It’s on the wiki.

Which translates to:

Fuck you. I’m not going to help you.

    “let’s take that offline” does bear a remarkable resemblance to … wanna take this outside, punk?
