Plato's Top 10 Reasons Why You Need to Hire Another Technical Writer

10. Engineers have to blame their organizational, technical, and sexual
inadequacies on somebody.

9. When the writer is all used up, you can use him/her as a ineffectual middle
management bloodsucker!

8. What? You think a normal human can figure out how to use FrameMaker?

7. If the Titanic had more technical writers and less tow-headed, idealistic
artsy urchins banging rich, educated, redheads it wouldn't have sunk.

6. Hang a tech writer in a cubicle to get a fresh outdoors pine scent for days.

5. Just you TRY to figure out how to get RoboHelp installed on your an old
Pentium-166 with Word 6.0.

4. For after hours fun, throw two tech writers in a room with a really crappy
style guide and enjoy the combat. Lacks the pure carnage of a cock fight, but
is sure to entertain.

3. Think of all the majestic trees in the Pacific Northwest a tech writer can
help cut down and grind into paper so Sally Crumbpucker the syphilitic moron
doesn't ram her finger in a 220 volt socket and sue the living daylights out of
your heavily leveraged, poorly managed excuse for a corporation.

2. Technical writers can help raise the stock price of any corporation because
they can bend the fabric of space with their amazing superpowers and create a
trans-dimensional conduit where there are piles of money just lying around.

And the number 1 reason to hire another technical writer:

1. It's the WRITE! thing to do!

Run Lola Run!
