It's time to "get back on track".
Here's one I'm not sure if it's origin is from railroading but it sounds like it could be, "boilerplate". As in, "the first two pages of this proposal are nothing but boilerplate"
There's one really, really very common expression that I really, really surprised not to see here.... So common, I just heard someone use it a little bit ago on a TV program.
Anyone what to take a shot at it????
Can you give us a small clue?
He was "railroaded" into it?
sorry just looked back and it was the first one
How about jump on the "band wagon"?
I would, but even the slightest hint would give it away.
Oh, alright, in some convoluted way, it could have something to do with business....:twisted:
Hows about "inbound" & "outbound"
"Caboose" referring to rear end. Used in a business setting, you might find yourself out of business...?
Of course to a tot, you would "paddle his littlr caboose". Then, how about HOME DEPOT
Nope, I said "convoluted", not "complicated":cry:. It's very simple, and expression that you routinely hear about the way that some people do some things... Oh, oh, I'm giving it away, little by little..
Do things... "by the book"? I suppose that could be used in business (and probably is), but I doubt that the railroad had exclusive use of this expression.
Come to a screeching halt.
Round table discussion ?
That has more to do with grenades, or smoke decoys, I think. As in, "let's pop smoke," or "Let's blow this pop stand."
All good answers, but not the one I'm thinking of. It has something to do with someone not agreeing with how you do business. That again is kind of convoluted, but if I used one, just one key word, you'd all know what the rest of the phrase was.wall1 wall1
I'll post that key word before 11 PM tonight, EST....
