i'm a gigantic fuckin nerd

Recommended Posts

this is an actual email conversation that went on between me, this fijian guy in my department raj, and our boss marcos:

 

 

raj:

 

Hello ABC,

 

I will help Tyler with the 103 since there is a lot so please keep all the 3 eyes on pega and let me know if there is a lot and you need help. Remember if you ever need help, "always pass the buck". This is something I learned at my other job and it means always ask for help if you are having problems with anything.

 

Thanks Buddy

Raj

 

 

me:

 

pass the buck actually means to pass the blame/job/problem onto someone else

 

 

raj:

 

It means you get someone to help you resolve that problem. Not to pass it to someone and forget about it.

 

 

me:

raj:

 

Ok Dude - here is the deal. Pass the buck in a work environment means to get someone to help you resolve that problem. This is used by at least 85 % of retail businesses in the US. Just for your information.

 

 

me:

 

66.6% of the people in this conversation disagree

 

 

marcos:

 

You guys kill me!!!

 

Raj - ABC is correct....in the US, passing the buck means (in most cases) "passing the blame" or "passing on a task"

 

 

me:

 

pwned
