In the US, today’s the Thanksgiving holiday. As I learned from A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, it’s supposed to be about friendship, family, and being grateful for what you have. In common practice, it’s more about gorging yourself.

While I was perusing our inbox, I saw that Matthew sent me a “flow chart” that represented a set of requirements from his sales team. Immediately upon opening it, I said, “Thank goodness I don’t have to work on this.”

This is a completely incomprehensible diagram that claims to be a flow chart, but is actually just a bunch of vaguely connected boxes with no rhyme or reason to how they connect.

So, today, whether you celebrate the orgy of American excess or not, celebrate this fact. You’ve never been handed a requirements document this bad. I hope.
