    Is this the new catchphrase we are all supposed to know?


    I suddenly see it everywhere, but why now?

    We used to use the term in the machine to refer to a job or part that we only had to make one or set up one time. What context is it being used in?

    "Lets stack hand and try to step through this plan to make sure we're all on the same page".

    "We have to wrap our heads around this and make sure no one is left out of the loop"

    I'll make an effort to leverage my vocabulary assets and discover new ways of expressing myself going forward.

    OMFG, I saw a character say that on a TV show yesterday. I wanted to throw my tv through the window. In order for that to happen that would mean that several writers, the whole cast and crew (including the actor saying the actual line) would have had to say NOTHING in order for it to make it to air on a motherfucking pre-taped show.
