Blacksmith Needed
This just came in from Dennis Fahringer - it illustrates well the importance of:

      -    communications
      -    getting the details right
      -    and the problem of expecting others to read [correctly] between the lines

 "An old blacksmith realized he was soon going to quit working so hard.  He picked out a strong young man to become his apprentice.   The old fellow was crabby and exacting.  "Don't ask me a lot of  questions," he told the boy. "Just do whatever I tell you to do."
One day the old blacksmith took an iron out of the forge and laid it on the anvil.  "Get the hammer over there," he said.  'When I nod my head, hit it real good and hard.'

Now the town is looking for a new blacksmith."
