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.)

Perplexfiles

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: pur plecks fyles

Sentence: Suzy had that perplexfiles feeling again. What to hide away, what to look busy doing and what to let her boss see her working on. Her boss, Alvin, was on one of his rampages again. It was his idea of motivating and supervising his staff, he thought. He'd roam through the office, looking for flaws and then act all dramatic about what he found. Most of the staff kept out of his way when he went on these rants...bathroom breaks, lunch at 10:00 am or going to that doctor's appointment. Alvin was such a diva, like he was the one upon whom all productivity depended. Luckily for Suzy and staff, he only did it when he was sober, so it did not happen very often!

Etymology: perplex (bewildering, mystery,complcated) & files (a set of related records (either written or electronic) kept together) & for rhyming X Files (The truth is out there...I want to believe...)
