Waterproof gloves.

To quote Andy Kirkpatrick "You can buy 100% waterproof gloves, but no matter how expensive they are, all of them have one major flaw in their drop-lined, seam-sealed and die-cut design… they all have a dammed great dirty hole in them that lets the rain in. Where you may ask? It’s the one into which you’ve got to stick your hand."

A company I worked for changed the name from "Help Desk" to "Service Desk", and seeing as they were neither a help nor service, we called them "desk". Eventually, even the management did so.
A few years ago I berated a copper for not doing his job, and had a go at his Force. "We're not a Police Force now. It implies threat.'
"Well what are you?"
"A Police Service."

The irony of that statement was lost on him.

Anything Political:

Moving Forward = Stop getting on our case and ignore the fact that we lost 'insert Millions here'

To be clear = I'm going to be anything but.

Our Current Position = We now realise that we ffff'd up.

Let me finish = I intend to ramble on without actually answering your questions.
 
1. Stainless steel.

Eh? I can't remember the last time I had stains on my KFS (perhaps I need to be more adventurous with my curries) so I imagine that it's the steel bit you're moaning about. To be fair, most kitchen knives these days seem to be made of something that sacrifices sharpness for shiny...

Customer services
Undelivered (should be not delivered, can't be @rrsed to deliver or it's too much bother to take it to the neighbour that's clearly in because I could see them doing the gardening. No, Undelivered means you delivered it, then took it back, which isn't what happened. Ever.)
