Anyone else hate banking lingo and make fun of it, but as soon as a discussion starts you say "we dont want to boil the ocean here". Fml. Whats your most despised finance phrase?

I don't know of any or hear any but I think all trendy office lingo is dumb and I think it's stupid that people use trendy buzz words just to follow a fad and try to look cool when those words would never come naturally to them

Never heard boil the ocean. I had a manager who proudly adopted every business jargon phrase and expected his reports to interact this way. The movie playing in his head had everyone on a certain script when we all just thought he was a dumbass
