Millennial Engineers Word Up

 

Sometimes, you just want to communicate easily with anyone you’re associated with. Whether you have to talk to your 50-year-old engineer boss or talk to younger engineers at work, you just want the communication between the two of you to be smooth.

Unfortunately, not everyone talks the same way and people easily create their own lingo in today’s society.

You’ve probably heard of a TV show named Scrub or heard the song of the same title from TLC. Originally, it was a term used to describe someone who is a newbie to a video game. Now, a scrub is someone who is bad at an activity in general. But for the TLC song, it sings:

A scrub is a guy that thinks he’s fly 

And is also known as a buster 

Always talkin’ about what he wants 

And just sits on his broke ass 

Do you know any other definition for the word Scrubs?
