This question already has an answer here:
I hear this all the time.
I'll see if I have a resource available.
Perhaps an India resource can pick this up.
All my resources are busy.
But what they mean is
I'll see if anyone is available.
Perhaps someone in our Indian office can work on this.
All my supervisees are busy.
Why is 'resource' such a prevalent term for human being in the workplace? Is there any good reason?
