I have a lot of colleagues from the US "reaching out to me". I also have some UK colleagues wanting to "square the circle", "touch base" and "take a helicopter view".
My most recent teeth grinder is colleagues who buy time while they think of what to say by saying "what it is is" - drives me potty along with "at the end of the day" and starting every sentence with the word "fundamentally"!
It can be like one long tedious episode of The Apprentice in my office sometimes.
