K: "It's like a huge cluster fuck!"
Term used to describe the state of affairs resulting from too many staffers and not enough TRAINED staffers on a project. This usually happens as a result of a rush or deadline which cannot be met, when managers or planners resort to simply adding warm bodies to the effort out of sheer desperation or incompetence. Also results from having a surplus of supervisors or other overhead-related personnel who cannot actually perform any useful work towards project goals, especially where the prescence or contributions of these people hinders work performed by others.
Mike: "Hey who ran all these network cables under my cubicle? Where am I supposed to put my feet?"
Ryan: "Dude, we're putting in the new computers, we need relocate you to a desk in the basement."
Mike: "Jesus, what a clusterfuck this place is!"
Denise: "Be glad you missed the sales meeting today, there weren't enough chairs in the conference room and half of us had to stand, then that idiot Laura knocked over her venti Starbucks coffee all over the table. It even got the phone wet and everyone on the dial-in line got disconnected. God, what a clusterfuck!"
Brianna: "Like oh my god, total!"
