Definitely a good chuckle and it also strikes me that while I have a great plan to use a nice process to correctly identify data needed to complete a change, someone always gets distracted and sends the plan down the drain.;)

Very nicely done. Well worth perusing. Light-hearted, fun, and spoke to the truth in our work.

Outstanding.

Not only does it remind me of WAY too many of the projects I've worked on, it also reminds me of WAY too many trips with the kids.

Your analogy is like an analogy. (Very funny. Phil Factor will love it.)
