Boss came up to me today and said:
"Are you free on Thursday at 2pm to meet for a Thought Shower regarding a new project?"
After laughing my tree off i realised that it was a serious offer. Turns out that our old friend Political Correctness has outlawed the term Brainstorm, as it is suddenly offensive to people with epilepsy. Apparently it is a term used to describe what happens to the brain during a fit.
Now without any disrespect to anyone, i have never heard it used in that context before, and find it ridiculous that we are changing the name of something for pc's sake once again.
Thought Shower doesnt even mean anything, at least Brain Storm, as in to stir up ideas etc, makes some kind of sense. Where will it all end?
My response to the offer was:
"I'll bring my cap!"
