Example: “Going forward, would you like to receive weekly updates?”
Generally replaces “From now on,” in an attempt to convey a “Don’t look to the past for answers, look to the future!” attitude rather than a sheepish "Oops, I meant to do that, I totally won't mess up next time" subtext.
Example: “This product will literally be flying off the shelves,” or “We need to literally gather our troops for this one.”
No relation to the first, (and some might say correct) meaning of the word, “literally” can be inserted into any sentence for emphasis.
Example: “Why don’t you just shoot me an e-mail with that info?” or “I’m going to shoot over to the deli. Want anything?”
Used to convey the utmost speediness and efficiency. Prized workers do not merely send or walk, they SHOOT!
Example: “My boss was nice enough but she was a micro-manager.”
Most commonly, but not exclusively, used to mean “anal-retentive bitch,” micro-manager is the only accepted criticism of a boss. Other known meanings are “pervy creep who licked my neck at the Christmas party,” and “unbearably, heart-breakingly dumb wench who once vomited on herself at a trade show.”
Example: “Let’s meet tomorrow to recap what was decided on,” or “Just to recap, Sally will be handling the information flow for this one.”
If animals in the wild are driven by hunger and the need to procreate, corporate managers are driven by the need to have meetings. Useless meetings please them because it allows for a meeting (YAY!) with none of the stress of actually preparing for it or thinking during it. Barring an actual recap meeting, recapping during a “normal” meeting can also be quite satisfying, allowing the speaker to hold the floor with no requirement of actually having something to contribute.
Sometimes I try to incorporate these phrases into my speech. It doesn't really work.
