I'm putting together a collection of horror stories from the Tech Writing world. If you would care to share yours with me I would be most grateful. I will, however alter any names or places that appear within the text so as to protect you or anyone you mention from an embarrassing situation.
Some of what I have already collected includes horror stories regarding managers, coworkers, environment, etc. If you do send me material please indicate whether I can or cannot republish it.
