Exhaletothechief

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: eks hayl too the cheef

Sentence: Miriam worked for the President of their firm. Technically called an Executive Adminstrator, she soon learned that the title actually meant slave and dog's body to Mr. Stinkin' Lincoln. He did his MBA tour each day (Management By Annoyance) and harassed her and the other staff to work harder and faster. The irony was that he did not even know what Miriam did for him in a day. After his morning passover, she would exhaletothechief and get on with her real work. If only Mr. Lincoln knew how much energy and productivity was utilized by his staff in avoiding him and his daily tours and that they could get more done when he was not around.

Etymology: Exhale (heave or utter a sigh; breathe deeply and heavily) & The Chief (The Boss,a person who exercises control over workers) & play on "Hail to the Chief"(which is a march primarily associated with the President of the United States. Its playing accompanies the appearance of the President at many public appearances.)
