Staffing Changes Impact Cousins Center Reception Area

Staffing Cuts Euphemisized to "Changes".
If you have an appointment with a Cousins Center {Milwaukee Archdiocese HQ] staff member before 9:30 a.m. or after 2:30 p.m., you are asked to make arrangements to have that individual meet you at the front entrance.

    I really, really, really hate the use of the word "impact" as a verb. What's wrong with the perfectly serviceable "affect"? You've already pointed out how the language has been massaged to blunt the fact that staffing cuts are now "changes." Call me cynical, but I hear a lot of this kind of thing, particularly at the parish level, from both priests and parish functionaries. It's more than a little distressing, and leads me to think that disingenuous use of the language is an indication of less-than-precise thinking.

    P.S. Hey! It just occurred to me: Maybe they're just putting receptionists on a five hour schedule in order to match their workday with everyone else in the archdiocese. Just a thought...
