One saying that used to go around the office in my old job when we would be trying out something new and had no idea if it would work was "We'll just have to suck it and see."

When someone is shiting on about the "artistry" on an album being better or worse than anything else, as if this vaguest of nondescriptive words means anything that could possibly be measured.

My new one is "innovate", which isn't necessarily a problem word innd of itself (I also hate the term "in and of itself"), but when people in the office use "innovative" to refer to any change they make to literally anything. "OMG Angela, your new checklist is really innovative, I love how you've STREAMLINED it and we now have only 20 checks instead of 30. This is just a GAME CHANGER ANGELA".
