Excessive Vocaliztion

Another way to say it ... Big Words

The New Engineer at work, uses them, excessively. I think he is trying to make everyone think he is smarter then them.

Today he was asking me where we get our testing specifications from, but it wasn't asked for as simple as that.

After 5 minutes of conversation with him I wanted to scream "stop speaking in tounges, just say what you mean". It took me 4 tries with various statements to figure out what the hell the guy was talking about.

He does this all.the.time.

Drives me crazy.

Ask him to explicate his inquisitions in a unambiguous protocol. :)

Sorry, couldn't help myself

Thanks Contagion - I was looking for something exactly like that.

I swear, he just had a 15 minute conversation with a customer in which I could have handled in 5 minutes.

I am with you on this, say it already. Ick, the people that make meetings 2 hours longer than they need to be.
