I have yet another new word to introduce to you. I can feel the excitement in the air. Or maybe that’s just smog. It feels similar.
I was composing an email to my project manager to inquire about the location of the latest version of our project schedule, when I managed to make a typo, giving birth to this word. *tries not to imagine giving birth*
scheduel: (v) To push and shove and manipulate to get the project milestones and deadlines to fall where you want them to. Often occurs between marketing and R&D as a result of differing priorities. Very similar in usage to “schedule” but with some inherent combativeness. “We have been schedueling this multi-team, multi-year project for so long now that I am tired of the bickering and may just give in.” “We’ve successfully scheduelled the milestones we wanted! Go team! Now I need a nap.”
