We have a new boss, whose unclear, nebulous title of “Vice President of Management Affairs” tells little about what he actually does. One theory is that he is the nephew of our CEO, and was given this job with scattered, unlisted, and nebulous duties so that he can sound important while not doing anything demanding. When he asks what we’re doing at the office, we give him vague, indefinite, nebulous answers designed to stop further questions.
Quiz: If your teacher provided a nebulous response to your question, how would you feel?
- Interested because they provided new and fascinating information.
- Insulted because they gave such a simple and basic answer.
- Confused because they did not give you a clear answer.
