Every cliche in the book

These sentences all come from one story I edited today, on older tech workers staying competitive by getting certified in various skills:

>> Coming to the table not just with a certificate in hand, but proving you can use those skills may give you a leg up.

>> "IT has a leg up in contract work," says Sedlar.

>> "When my generation gets up and leaves the table, it'll be a bumpy ride," says Hal Weiss...

That's probably because you have your leg up on the table, Mr. Weiss. Now, is that polite?

It's a business-tech publication called Terminally Dull.
