Brainstorming

Just how much money did this nonsense waste cost?

A COUNCIL has banned the term “brainstorming” – and replaced it with “THOUGHT SHOWERS”.

Bosses fear the phrase to describe idea sessions may offend epileptics or the mentally ill.

Oh, really- and how many complaints have they had about it? Fact is, The Sun contacted spokesmen for a metal health and an epileptic group and both thought the idea was stupid too.

Staff have been sent memos about the change – and even sent on training courses.

Astounding. Looks like someone is either trying very hard to justify their salary or they are far too enamoured of 1984 for their own good.

A spokesman said: “We take diversity awareness very seriously.

“The majority of staff have taken part in training and been asked to use the term ‘thought showers’.”

I hope that staff told them what to do with their suggestions.

"Diversity Awareness" - what a monstrous pile of empty skulls. Thought Showers - sounds to me like they were hearded into the cattle cars and sent to the Thought Showers...

Yes, a monstous pile of empty skulls...that is why they don't like the term, "Brainstorming".
