The first time I saw the term cow-orker, I thought it was a funny way of insulting someone you work with. That’s cute, thought I, and moved on.
Then I saw it again. And again. “Oh, it’s been picked up…people like the jibe. It’ll bounce around for a while and go away eventually.”
Well, it’s still here. Only now I think it’s being used to mean co-worker. I’ve come across it several times in the past few days, and it doesn’t seem like the poster is making a dig at their co-worker.
Am I missing something?
