Being asked to bring back a meetings scheduled for next week.
By - Jon_Wedge
Put back makes sense, bring back? All I can think about is my bonnie lies over the ocean... Oh bring back my meeting to me, to meeee!
In America we have the phrase "push back," for things that got delayed, and "moved up" for the opposite. "Bring back" seems like a contradiction.
It makes no sense. It's the third time I've heard it this month. First was from a US colleague. Now everyone is doing it and messing it up
So ironic that so many more people are writing (for want of a better word) online, but so few actually read.
Interpretation varies so widely the expression shouldn't be used. Allegedly it relates to whether you regard yourself as moving through time, or time as moving through you.
This comment sums up my whole dilemma.
I need clarity, not ambiguity or catchphrases
May suggest you socialise a new term for meetings and see how that goes. My thoughts are "can we vignette the meeting".
I am not going to utilise that verbiage
