Idiom Addicts

I’m getting on my soapbox. I have an axe to grind, a hitch in my giddy up, a thorn in my side! It drives me up the wall. If I had a nickel for every idiom kicked around in Corporate America, I’d have the king’s ransom. It’s a bit much.

Let’s not beat around the bush, I’ve got a lot on my plate, but a problem shared is a problem halved. I’ve got my work cut out for me. I bite off more than I can chew on the daily grind. I’m busy as a bee. Be that as it may, I haven’t been able to catch a break in a month of Sundays and its been a long row to hoe. Little strokes fell great oaks, and I’m bending over backward to deliver the goods. I’m pulling my weight. A rolling stone gathers no moss, so I stay ahead of the curve and ahead of the pack. I’m burning the midnight oil but constantly working against the clock. I’m at my wits’ end, at the end of my rope, and I’m as sure as God made little green apples that the cake’s not worth the candle.

"Ahh, I'm also gonna need you to go ahead and come in on Sunday, too..."

It’s not that I can’t hack it. I have my ducks in a row. But call a spade a spade. I’m not cut from the same cloth. Any Tom, Dick, or Harry may work their way up the totem pole by throwing their weight around, but I’m not jumping on the bandwagon. Here’s where I draw the line: I wouldn’t touch that Kool-aid with a ten foot pole. I like keeping those dirty dogs at an arms length. Yet people buy it hook, line, and sinker – it’s greek to me!

I’m probably adding insult to injury or shooting myself in the foot by airing my dirty laundry in public. I don’t want to get my head handed to me, but I’m feeling blue and drinking like a fish.

Getting this business off the ground was no bed of roses, and for me it’s no labor of love. Keeping the well-heeled in the lap of luxury is a slippery slope. It’s the nature of the beast, but pigs get fat, hogs get slaughtered.

I’d rather count my blessings and keep my chin up with a level head. Across the board, it’s an act of war and every man and his dog is chomping at the bit. But all roads lead to Rome. I’m not trying to reinvent the wheel or square the circle, I just want to get a word in edgewise.

Corporate America, put a sock in it!

    Hello there, I do believe your website could be having browser compatibility problems.

    Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine however, if
    opening in I.E., it has some overlapping issues.
    I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Other than that, wonderful website!


  5. Yes but as I understand it, Congress makes the laws; and States are to follow those laws to the letter unless the State’s changes to the laws give a greater benefit to the Citizens of the State. A State is not supposed to “trump” Federal laws or reverse them. And Local laws cannot have less protections than State and Federal laws. In this case, the Judiciary is putting citizens of other countries before our own citizens. Miscarriage of justice is what it is, IMO.

  13. I feel like I’m on a cruise ship and I can see through the window into the bridge, and I see the captain and crew who are supposed to be steering the ship are all fighting and locked in a death grip and aren’t going to let go until everyone on it are dead. And wouldn’t you know it, they’ve locked the door to the bridge so that after they’re all dead the ship will be left to drift helplessly on its own like some kind of ghost ship, forever and ever. All I hope is that all the bars on the ship are really well stocked. If so, this could turn out to be the best cruise I’ve ever been on.
