“Have you prepared onboarding packages for your lecturers?” an administrative asks.
“No, what’s an onboarding package?” I ask.
After a long, torturous discussion, I discover that we are talking about welcome packages that I obviously had prepared.
“Why don’t we keep calling them welcome packages?” I suggest.
“Because we need to differentiate between onboarding packages and re-onboarding packages for people who are completely new and those who have worked for us before.”
“And how are they different?”
“Umm… well, I don’t know.”
I love the English language, and it hurts to see it tortured like this.
