The procedure is simple. Think of any three-digit number; then select the corresponding buzzword from each column. For instance, number 257 produces “systematized logistical projection”, a phrase that can be dropped into virtually any report with that ring of decisive knowledgeable authority. No-one will have the remotest idea of what you’re talking about, but the important thing is that they are not about to admit it!

Four Letters

The new manager walks into his office and, while settling into his new desk, finds 4
envelopes. On one he finds the words “open me first,” and the other three are numbered 1 to 3.

He opens the first envelope and finds a letter from his predecessor saying:
“These three envelopes will save you a world of trouble. In case of emergency, please
open these envelopes in sequential order; envelope one first, envelope two second, and
envelope three third.”

The manager shrugs, puts the envelopes back, and forgets about them.

Six months later, the workers go on strike. The company closes, and is losing
money fast.

After a long night negotiating with the union, he remembers the 3 envelopes. So he
opens the first one and it says: “Blame me, your predecessor for every thing”.

Wonderful idea he thinks, and indeed it works and the crisis comes to its end. His job
is saved, and everybody’s happy.

A few months later, another strike hits. He goes to the drawer and opens the second
envelope. It reads, “Blame the government for everything”.

It works like a charm, and he breathes a sigh of relief as his job is, once again,

A month later the workers declare another strike. The manager goes to the third
envelope and it reads, “Prepare 4 new envelopes”.
