My most disliked phrase is

"We are where we are" was once said to us by a developer who had created something that only worked with Postscript printer drivers. We pointed out that we had hundreds of printers that were PCL5 only.

Management should have fired him. They didn't so. instead of a few more hours development time, we spent a huge amount on new printers. Many years later (8?), we still have to require all new printers support it.

Google translate says the Latin is

Nos sumus in quo sumus.

That sounds like something for a family motto or coat of arms
