Tact, I must use tact

I was just mildly chewed out after a meeting with the managers. They understand my frustrations, and admired the descriptiveness of the phrase, but I'm no longer allowed to say that "the system goes down more than Linda Lovelace."

It's quite colorful and adds a certain drama. I like that...

That's one reason that I like working with lawyers. No one bats an eye at phrases like, "it's a big shit sandwitch and we all have to take a bite."

Heh, The Powers That Be are always telling me to watch it, too. Apparently saying things like "That part of the system sucks wet farts out of dead pidgeons" is not comporting myself in a professional manner.

Neither is "The lab's tits up and fucked sideways"

About a broken thing (electronic): Wheels up in the weeds in the barditch beside the information superhighway.

About a person who will not do right and cannot be made to do right: You can't embarass a flatulent skunk.

Yeah, the broads hate it when you say things like that. ;)
