Why?

It seems like an accurate way of stating when they have to be on to something else.

I don't get all the conference call hate either. It's a tool, yes, it has it's disadvantages but it also has incredible advantages. Maybe I just work with awesome people....

The conference calls I'm on are one of two groups/people:

1. Babbles inanely and repetitively way longer than necessary to get point across, sidetracked easily, not sure what point is half the time
2. People at corporate 3000 miles away where practically nothing is relevant to us here

My team lead checks in with us 1 on 1 every other week and those calls are usually productive and to the point at maybe 2-3 minutes. Actual group conference calls are almost always a waste of time IME. I have no doubt that this isn't universal.

Because it's ridiculous sounding and unnecessary. I've never once heard of someone having a "soft stop."

What's wrong with, "I have to leave at.."; It's one word less.

The director of my last company made me dislike it.

"Can you give me a download on..."

Bend over so I can insert the USB cable, skipper. How about I just tell you about it?

Give me a download? Okay, that doesn't follow any kind of logic.

Hard stop at least makes sense - but by asking for a download - I assume he's asking for a synopsis or something, not a full relay of information....

We do have one guy here who is constantly using the wrong phrases. We have a game of it and try and track them.

We were once talking to a room full of potential recruits and he was trying to tell them that we are an open and honest firm and that we don't play games. His words "We don't play hide the sausage here"

President and I nearly died laughing....

Have not heard that yet, is this the new "at the end of the day" ?

Maybe somebody should reach out and give you the bottom line as to what the total cost of ownership is.

It means they have to leave at a certain time.

Implying that there could be a situation where they have to leave at 5, but can actually stay past that time.

Do you have to leave at 5? Just fucking say that. If you don't, then don't.

It doesn't really upset me, it makes me

Unzipping her fly and grabbing a meat wobble is also a hard stop. Or at least a hard pause...

Why would you want an abridged version of

Nazi vampires eating babies?
Mostly because the good Abridged series are excellent parodies and tend to be hilarious, at least for me. Plus, with the 8-10m times each Abridged episode seems to go for, they're great for getting one or two in while on the stationary bike at the gym.

Dragonball Z Abridged, Hellsing Abridged, OLSA Abridged, and Null Metal Alchemist Abridged have been great so far.
