"I always felt like the taffy in a taffy pull." A great visual applicable to many situations, really.

I've been there. I always felt like the taffy in a taffy pull. Great fun was had when each side took turns reversing the work of the other side. Contradictions in the documentation arose when both sides were represented as they thought they should be. Then there were the yelling matches at Intel that I will never forget. That group knew how to put the "fun" back in dysfunction.
