One for the English Majors

I was typing something for my boss today and noticed that he had written "Transition [adjective] [noun] ..." and I asked if we could make it "Transfer [adjective] [noun]....." He agreed.

In this world of corporate-speak, this tiny victory is a lit candle in the vast darkness. The Professional Organization of English Majors will be so happy.

You know, Leta, minor victories like these truly do warm the cockles of my heart. Rejoice!

As an English minor, I derive great joy from your victory, except not quite as much as some others. Congratulations to us, though.

After a long career in government, I've been forced to use bureaucratese, but in general I prefer to avoid it whenever possible. (If you ever catch me using "leverage" as a verb, PLEASE call me on it!) How fortunate for you that you were able to spare some unsuspecting reader the indignity of such language. Thank you, and well done!
