Once when I l left a place for which I was maintained their databases, I
wrote procedures for all the things I did. I was working as a programmer
at the time.

I put my notes into a nice binder, showed it to everyone in operations,
went through it with someone, and left it in plain sight.

Sometime later I discovered the binder got kicked under some furniture
and forgotten. My notes were never used. How about that?

I actually went back to work at that same company years later at another
location and found my old binder in a box of old papers. I retrieved it
and kept it. I still have it.
