A sarcastic congratulatory note, in the form of an acronym, given to a scapegoat who has just been "promoted" or "honored" with leading an impossible team or mission.
Standing for "Congratulations!!!...You Poor Bastard!"
CYPB, I hear you just got promoted to lead Company C on that suicide mission.
refers to worthless people in large companies, DRIFTWOOD is when that employee gets passed from one department to another hoping to find a place where they can add value (or delay getting fired).
Joe is totally Driftwood, he has been passed off to every department in this division and never once completed a days work.
