So I'm sitting in a meeting...
« on: May 31, 2008, 09:32:44 AM »

...where my company is building a case -so to speak- against a software vendor who hasn't exactly delivered as promised. The project manager has pulled a billion emails and is putting together the sequence of events that has us to this point. She's reading along and gets to this exchange:

"On 5/5/08 Mr. Derion emails Mr. Crosby and asks him to load the new calc source file in the test environment. On 5/5/08 Mr. Crosby replies "This has been done." On 5/5/08 Mr. Derion replies... *she pauses* ..."w00t!".

At least a few people in the room laughed, the others....not so much. Thanks, golfhos...

So I'm imagining this woman reading this with those half glasses that sit on her nose...

that's f'in funny, didja hafta explain what "woot" meant.

2. woot     
1) An interjection similar to "YAYE!" or "Woohoo!" used to express joy or excitement, usually about some kind of accomplishment. Primarily used by gamers, spreading rapidly to anyone who chats online.

1)Mr Crosby replies: "This has been done."
Mr Derion: "woot"!
