Co-worker related topic - figured this was a safe venue to make fun of him. A person I work with who has been with the firm about 8 years and runs a lot of engagements is famous for the following phrases:
"Let's make sure to not put the horse before the cart on this one"
"Let's keep everything going well - keep that cart before the horse"
(that is the exact wording he uses)
He says these all the time to partners, clients, etc. I am too embarassed for him to tell him he is an idiot and has the saying completely backwards. Actually, it makes meetings a bit more enjoyable because I have to keep a straight face, which usually fails when other people are in the room too.
This morning he said "Buenos Dias" to our French office contacts...
