7. We have one of those in our NY office. 35yo MBA who sounds 14.
It's so bad that one of the clients said she could only be on the project if her (male) partner delivered the reports.

I actually had to listen to her brief this client:

"So this encapsulates? The benefits of a more proactive approach? And we also found they didn't put them in silos? So we can maximize each one?" I was pounding my head on the desk - the combination of the Valley Girl delivery of the B-school buzzwords (silos - aaarrgghh) was threatening to overload my circuits.

Compounding the sin, this Wharton-B-School bitch asked on of the young guys in our office "how OLD are you? You sound like you're still in college!" (He doesn't. Granted, he's young, but he behaves and speaks like an adult.) And she tried to get me to do most of the work on the project because "I don't usually do that myself? I usually get my undergrads to do that?"
