I have two cubes...the one I work in, and one that is unoccupied where I do
my process diagram assembly. While taping something together, I overheard a
conversation between two developers (D1 write the code and D2 was his code
review partner...every developer has a partner who reviews their code):

D1: "But they shouldn't send the package out without having a valid
D2: "But what if they do?"
D1: "They won't because they shouldn't do it that way."
D2: "What are you gonna tell Posada when he diagrams this process and he
asks what happens if there ain't a valid manifest?"

I LOVE this job :-)
