Weaselling

Weasels are sneaky.

They write things that don’t really mean anything, but sound as though they do. Things like “one of the best…” or ”market leading…”

The 2nd worst kind of weasels are those that work in recruitment. The kind that have been in the industry for about an hour and a half and want to look as though they know what they’re doing.

Or the kind that have been in recruitment long enough to have become brainwashed by reading too many corporate job descriptions.

Either way, they throw around phrases such as “…enabling performance-optimising decisions to be made” in their job ads instead of just writing “making good decisions” like a human being would.

Weaselling.

The act of using words that, if they were foods, would taste good for about 5 seconds and eventually rot your teeth.
