How many of us, or how many times? Hahahah

It's happened to me many times. I just make the stuff up and hope it
works. Be sure to document the fact that you were not given access,
although when the sh** hits the fan, everyone gets sprayed.

I have a question for the group:

How many of you have been asked to document a software application, but
were not expected to need access to that software?

It's happened to me a few times where I had to explain that I can't
document what I can't see. I was wondering how prevalent this attitude
is from businesses?

Thanks in advance.
