People at work use a maddening amount of jargon, and it's especially irritating when it's just a replacement for a better word. The word one is the noun "ask"—an ask is a request.
Here's a massive list of Microsoft jargon, for the interested.
I think that a lot of the entries on the list are made-up, though. Buzzword Bingo isn't Microsoft jargon, for example; it's a Dilbert reference, unless Dilbert many, many years ago was just referencing something else. But, a lot of the things on that list are terms that I hear every day, and most of them make me a sad panda.
