"Hey, can we take this offline?" This is a truly bizarre modern way to say: "Let’s talk about it later or in private." Oh, I’m sorry! I thought we were human beings in the same room communicating with each other by making noises with our faces! I didn’t realise we were online. Are we all living in the matrix now? And if we just go down the corridor to the coffee machine and talk in pairs, we’ll suddenly be offline?
These terms never fail to amaze me. And I refuse to say “take this offline” or “ping me” (which isn’t included in this list).
