Yep, sho' 'nuff, Mary. I take the minutes for our Methods and Standards
Team's meetings and edit them. Since no coworkers are looking over my
shoulder at the moment, at least it means the meeting summaries are now in
plain old English!

I've got a "Dilbert" at the entrance to my cubicle that covers this...the
famous "Dogbert tweaks Tina the brittle technical writer" -- the boss asks her
to retype an org chart and she cringes. Me, I just smile; they're paying me
either way.

P.S. at Hallowe'en, does your outfit turn into "Eerie Documentation"? : )
