ggcT.A.L.E.N.T, though similar to the English(1) word “talent”,  is a machine level language used by Companies and Managers. 

T.A.L.E.N.T stands for Typically Asynchronus Language for Ensuring Notable Tension & temper.  The tension and temper, incidentally,  is caused to the other beings near a verbal exchange in T.A.L.E.N.T due to their complete misunderstanding of the ways of it. 

Little is known about T.A.L.E.N.T as it is only understood by the companies and another group of semi-humanoid beings called MANAGEMENT (MANAGEMENTs are covered in details in the 73rd edition of the Graduates Guide to the Corporates –GGC, an excellent book suitable for all individuals hoping to work in a company, completely unsuitable for anyone with the slightest bit of common sense).

 The beauty of T.A.L.E.N.T. lies in the fact that untrained ears consider it to be a meaningless exchange of bragging and blatant a$$-kissing. Following example defines the case in point. 

(The following conversation took place between two company managements, one higher in rank and a direct boss of the other) 

——————-

High Manger (HM): Well done! Pulled another 13 hour day, I see.

Low Manager (LM): Sir, with you as a leader, I never dream of going home. Who needs a wife when I have a job like this?

HM: Now, now. Work life balance is very important; we don’t want you to move away from your family.

LM: Boss, it doesn’t matter. My work is my motivation. The last big project we successfully implemented gave me more pleasure than anything I have ever felt. It feels good to be valued to be given so many important tasks.

HM: Yes, we like people whose work is their motivation. I personally feel I would still work even if the company stopped paying me.

——————-

At this point, the unfortunate listener hacked the LM to pieces and delivered a fatal blow to the HM. In his last breath the HM gave the only translation of T.A.L.E.N.T. ever heard by a humanoid.

High Manger (HM): Well done! Pulled another 13 hour day, I see. (You inefficient moron, I can do your work in 10 minutes)

Low Manager (LM): Sir, with you as a leader, I never dream of going home. Who needs a wife when I have a job like this? (Go ahead then. And where is that promotion I have been busting my a$$ for?)

HM: Now, now. Work life balance is very important; we don’t want you to move away from your family. (Promotion? What promotion?)

LM: Boss, it doesn’t matter. My work is my motivation. The last big project we successfully implemented gave me more pleasure than anything I have ever felt. It feels good to be valued to be given so many important tasks. (Then I have no choice but to look for other options. There are lots of other places!

HM: Yes, we like people whose work is their motivation. I personally feel I would still work even if the company stopped paying me. (Go right ahead. We have lots of people standing in line for your job at much lower pay.)

T.A.L.E.N.T is universally understood by all companies in all part of the galaxy. Some say, the proficiency of MANAGEMENT in T.A.L.E.N.T is what promotions are based on in companies. As a result most people feel that the braggers, a$$-kissers and the completely talentless (not to be mistaken with T.A.L.E.N.T.less) are the ones to get promoted in a company.

Which, of course, is exactly what happens.

(1) English is a grossly underdeveloped earthbound language used by humanoids and semi-humanoids.It does not even allow the simplest telepathic, telemorbismic or even day to day conversation. Inter-Galactic Council of Language (ICL, which is shunned by Inter-Galactic Permissible Lingua (IPL) for the simple reason that they eat into their profits!) defines English as, “A Medicore language like method of communication which is yet to decide on a way of saying hello. The current mode of greetings in English include “Greetings”, “Good Morning”, “Hey”, “Yo”, “Wazzup”, “Yo Maan”, “Whatcha Cookin’” (What cooking has to do with greeting is the beyond the comprehensive intellect of ICL and IPL combined), “Yo Bro”, “Hiya Sis” etc. and the less used but infinitely  more meaningful, “Hello”.)
