Working at a big-ish tech is like a completely different world.

Do we even speak the same words?

Why can't you say agree like a normal person. Who the frig made "++" a real life word (is it a verb/noun? wtf is it)

and then all those other acronyms like OKR, P1,p2,p3

Who talks like that?

    Never heard or read ++ as a verb.
    Except for devRant of course.

    I thought it was just a thing at my current company. then I saw people on blind going "++" this as well.

    ++ is a verb, pronounced ĭn′krə-mənt

    Yep the acronyms are strong with these people yet they complain if we use tech ones.

    My old company used KPI, new one uses OKR and they move on to a new acronym of the month with product led organisation (PLO) or blah blah initiative (BBI).

    @hjk101 Yeah it's wild. And to them they are so common they expect everyone to know what they are. It's a different world
