Jargon Examples

Just graduating out of college, Mr. Would-be Cop (Wbc from now on) decided to serve his nation and community by being a cop. Wbc passed the written test with ease and got himself admitted in the police academy. Flash forward — came his first training session; the instructor and the seniors started talking in extra-terrestrial like language that passed way above his head, just as if the holy spirit has descended onto the apostles of Jesus on the day of Pentecost. With a blank face, he tried to make sense of what was being said but couldn’t. Second flash forward — a year had passed and Mr. Wbc was now a master of the twisted tongue, for he too, now talked in it. Third flash forward — Mr. Wbc was now an instructor himself and was confusing new admissions with his tongue twisters, wickedly known as jargon. Many of the would-be’s in the world of internet, chatting, military, medical, law enforcements have gone through the same process of getting themselves adjusted to the world of jargon that seem way out of control in the beginning, then becomes a necessity to survive, and eventually ends up being an enjoyable little affair to cut the long story short every time there’s a situation. So, in whatever field you’re going to be a would-be; it’s better to acquaint yourself with a few jargons in advance. Read on to know some examples of jargons.
