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!

  2. Wow! What a harrowing tale. How wonderful that your recovery is coming along so well. Synaesthesia is such a fascinating affliction. It would be very interesting if you were to keep a journal tracking what taste you get from what sound. Along with your wit and charm, that would make for a wonderful read. I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to see that post. So glad you’re back.

  4. Andrew,Thanks for your comment, I think you’re right that it is difficult to say that the elections shouldn’t coincide because they raise the local election turnout.Since writing the post the one change I think I’d make is to more clearly say “oh well, that’s life and democracy”! I do think it’s an interesting and important observation for democrats and Green activists alike.

  17. One thing is always that one of the most typical incentives for applying your cards is a cash-back and also rebate present. Generally, you get 1-5 back upon various expenses. Depending on the cards, you may get 1 again on most purchases, and 5 in return on acquisitions made going to convenience stores, filling stations, grocery stores along with ‘member merchants’.

  18. Ady, ai mai folosit acel spray pentru volum de la Elseve sau acum il testezi pentru prima oara? Pentru ca eu l-am cumparat, l-am folosit si am fost mega dezamagita :( . La mine n-a facut altceva decat sa-mi aspreasca parul si sa-i dea un miros cat de cat ok. Tu ce parere ai despre el?

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if
    it can survive a 30 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
