Words Overheard in a Business Meeting

Circle Back. Verb. Intransitive.

  • "Let's circle back to that point."
  • "We should circle back again..."
  • "So perhaps we should circle back before we go on."
  • "Let's circle back before we circle back to..."
  • Person 1: "I was going to circle back to..." [interrupted by person 2] "no let's circle back to..."
It was fitting. We were just circling around in the meeting, moving nowhere at a crawl.

Hint to people who are chronic circling backers: STOP IT! NOW!
