say what?
officespeak term of the day: 'customer-facing employee'.

as in: 'The restructuring will result in a significant number of job eliminations in some areas – particularly marketing and development. The restructuring will have minimal impact on our customer-facing employees.'

notice that the word "fired" doesn't appear in this at all. but at least "job eliminations" is closer to the truth than the hideous "downsizing".
