I've always been pretty adamant about NOT doing
clerical-type work as a technical writer. It
amazes me how programmers and analysts often seem
to assume that tech writers would be delighted
to take care of the clerical end of their jobs

I sometimes took the issues to my boss, particularly
if I wasn't sure about the political logistics of
the situation, but generally I took the issue directly
to the programmer. Interestingly, I usually ended
up with much stronger working relationships AFTER
telling them that I was WAY too busy to play
secretary for them.
