In order for Twincorp staffers to communicate effectively it is important to understand and correctly use various Terms of Art throughout the workday. Some terms may seem straightforward, but have unique meaning in the context of work at Twincorp that can create misunderstandings, arguments, and civil unrest.
For example: "Tomorrow" generally refers to the day after today. It is widely accepted that a new day begins at midnight. However, in the context of 3:00 a.m. feedings, "tomorrow" refers to the remainder of the day after everyone goes back to sleep. Should The Chief of Motherhood mention doing something "tomorrow" while feeding a Twin in the wee hours of the morning, any attempt to correct her will be regarded as needless wise-assery.
Many of you may have heard the Chief of Fatherhood and Motherhood use the term "bit" when describing when they will perform certain tasks. (e.g. "I'll do the laundry in a bit.") A "bit" is a non-uniform unit of time that expands and contracts as needed to cover any and all eventualities, up to and including never doing the assigned task due to distraction or forgetfulness. Should a task be delayed for a "bit" more than three times, it shall no longer be considered assigned to a staffer, as the likelihood that they remember the task has fallen to zero.
A "bit" should not be confused with a "minute."
Similar to "tomorrow," a "minute" has a standard definition (60 seconds) and a separate Twincorp definition (as soon as possible). If a staffer is pooping, having a coffee, and reading the news when they are asked to perform a task, a reply of "in a minute" can mean up to 20 minutes without repercussions.
Several staffers have inquired about "free time" also known as "personal time." These inquiries will be ignored until the existence of these concepts can be confirmed and studied.
