vague dead.line [vÄg dÃªd’lÃ®n]
- An unclear time limit. Often implemented with the intent of relaxing time boundaries only to produce an impending sense of doom.
- A clearly stated deadline that has been utterly ignored and therefor requires de-emphasis. Usage: “Yeah, we figured 3pm sharp was a vague deadline and that it would be OK to get it to you at 6pm tomorrow.”
