Jargon Fetish

A Sexual Fantasy

— By stakeholder

I have a business jargon fetish. Most people think jargon is boring and impersonal; but to me there is something so sexy and human about it. The office workers of the world use this language to sound professional and buttoned-up; but beneath it everyone is still a regular person with desires and vulnerabilities. I have a fantasy about meeting a coworker in a conference room when we are both working late at night. We spend a few moments having a conversation in jargon, which is full of subtext and meaning. Then, I rip his clothes off and he shows me his powerpoint presentation.
