Track Record

track record

“Track record.” This expression bugs us at Pen-for-Rent. It pops up everywhere that people wish to point out an individual’s history of accomplishments – in other words, his/her “record.” Why “track record”? Is the discussion about a race horse? That’s right, it appears that it was folks involved in horse racing who contributed this shopworn expression to the lexicon. When discussing a job applicant’s fine qualities, do you want to sound like a cigar-chomping bookie evaluating horseflesh? If not, try deleting “track.” It’ll replace that telltale whiff of horse manure with an air of sophistication. Trust us.
