Bullshit Bingo



vergaderen met een glimlach

Herinnert u zich nog het spel ‘Zeg eens eh…’ op de radio, waarbij presentator Kees Schilpenoort de deelnemers probeerde te verleiden om tijdens een gesprek van ca 3 minuten toch ‘eh’ te zeggen? Voor managers en vergaderingen is er nu een soortgelijk spel. Het waart inmiddels al langer door de vergaderzalen en heeft ook Nederland ontdekt: Bullshit Bingo. Managers, beladen met een hol managementjargon of beter nog clichétaal, zijn in korte tijd ‘back to basics’ en worden door hun collega’s ‘teruggefloten’. ‘Mind you’.

Bullshit Bingo kwam overgewaaid uit Amerika en Engeland, waar werknemers elkaar al zo’n tien jaar lang tijdens vergaderingen afrekenen op het gebruik van clichétaal.


Het werkt zo: zet eens de nietszeggende woorden of uitdrukkingen die in uw bedrijf gebezigd worden op een rij. Binnen korte tijd zijn dat er aardig wat. Werk ze vervolgens uit op een bingoformuliertje van bijvoorbeeld 6 bij 6 vakjes. Deel voor een vergadering de formuliertjes uit en leg de spelregels kort uit.

Elke keer als er een woord genoemd wordt, dat op het lijstje voorkomt, kruist u dit aan. Heeft u vijf kruisjes op een rij (horizontaal, verticaal of diagonaal) aangekruist op de kaart , dan mag u keihard ‘Bullshit’ roepen. Het voorkomt indutten tijdens vergaderingen en roept de deelnemers op om alert te zijn en goed te formuleren. Misschien een beetje ‘soft’ - zoals manager het graag uit mogen drukken - maar dat kan ook heel hard zijn…

Updates to Staff Handbook - Effective immediately

It is advised that you come to work dressed accordingly to your salary. If we see you wearing £350 Prada sneakers & carrying a £600 Gucci bag we assume you are doing well financially and therefore you do not need a bonus. If you dress poorly, you need to learn to manage your money better, so that you may buy nicer clothes and therefore you do not need a raise. If you dress in-between, you are right where you need to be and therefore you do not need a bonus or increment.

We will no longer accept a doctor statement as proof of sickness. If you are able to go to the doctor, you are able to come to work.

Operations are now banned. As long as you are an employee here, you need all your organs. You should not consider removing anything. We hired you intact. To have something removed constitutes a breach of employment.

Each employee will receive 104 personal days a year. They are called Saturday and Sunday.

All employees will take their vacation at the same time every year. The vacation days are as follows: Jan. 1 and Dec. 25

This is no excuse for missing work. There is nothing you can do for dead friends, relatives or co-workers. Every effort should be made to have non-employees attend to the arrangements. In rare cases where employee involvement is necessary, the funeral should be scheduled in the late afternoon. We will be glad to allow you to work through your lunch hour and subsequently leave one hour early, provided your share of the work is done.

This will be accepted as an excuse. However, we require at least two weeks notice as it is your duty to train your own replacement.

Entirely too much time is being spent in the WC. In the future, we shall follow the practice of going in alphabetical order. For instance, all employees whose names begin the ‘A’ will go From 8:00 to 8:20, employees whose names begin the ‘B’ will go from 8:20 to 8:40 and so on. If you’re unable to go at your allotted time, it will be necessary to wait until the next day when your turn comes again. In extreme emergencies, employees may swap their time with a co-worker. Both employees’ supervisors must approve this exchange in writing. In addition, there is now a strict 3-minuted time limit in the stalls. At the end of three minutes, an alarm will sound, the toilet paper roll will retract, the stall door will open and a picture will be taken. After your second offence, your picture will be posted on the office bulletin board under the “Chronic Offenders” category.

Skinny people get 30 minutes for lunch, as they need to eat more so that they can look healthy. Normal size people get 15 minutes for lunch to get a balanced meal to maintain their average figure. Fat people get 5 minutes for lunch, because that’s all the time needed to drink a Slim-Fast and take a diet pill.

Thank you for your loyalty to the Dept. We are here to provide a positive employment experience. Therefore, all question, comments, concerns, complaints, frustrations, irritations, aggravations, insinuations, allegations, accusations, contemplations, consternation and input should be directed elsewhere.

Have a nice week.

Who wears the pants in your home:

Jack was about to marry Jill and his father took him to one side:
When I got married to you mother the first thing I did when we got home was to take off my trousers. I gave them to your mother and told her to try them on, which she did.

They were enormous on her and she said to me that she couldn’t possibly wear them, as they were too large.

I said to her of course they are too large for you, I wear the trousers in this family and always will. Ever since that day we never have a single problem.

Jack took his fathers advice to heart and as soon as he got Jill alone after the wedding, he did the same thing. He took off his trousers and handed them to Jill and told her to try them on.

When she did she said “I can’t wear these, they’re too large for me”.

“Exactly” Jack replied “I wear the trouser in this family and I always will. I don’t want you to ever forget that”

Then Jill took off her knickers and gave them to Jack. “Try these on
Jack” she said, so he tried in vain to get them on, but they were too small.

“I can’t get into your knickers” said Jack.

“Exactly” said Jill “and if you don’t change your fucking attitude, you never will”
