It's been a slow few weeks at work and I'm itching for cooler weather to arrive. So I decided to create a few 'Work-Ski-isms' that relate common ski terms or slang to office life. If this has been done before, I apologize, my search skills seem to be lacking...
First chair: Getting the front or best parking spot
First tracks: Being the first to use a toilet in the morning…i.e. the seat is up from being cleaned
Powder stash: Leftover donuts in the break room
Powder hound: The guy who has more than his share of donuts
Yard Sale: The current situation on my desk…
Avalanche: Getting a lot of work on a Friday afternoon
Apres Ski: Any time after 3pm…let’s face it, nothing gets done after 3pm. Applies to noon on Fridays…
Jibbing: Sliding down any railing on your butt
Out-of-Bounds: The boss’ office
Glades: Navigating a busy hallway
Bumps: Speed bumps in the parking lot
Zipper line: Flying over the speeds bumps without regard for your car’s suspension…or the safety of others…
Feel free to add any of your own!
