Out Of Character Humor

with 2 comments

I’m involved in a back and forth discussion about a string of text in an engineering effort. As it can happen, everybody with an opinion waits until the text has been nailed down, approved and submitted for localization. Then and only then do I start to really get feedback, even though there’s been 2+ weeks for it to be voiced. So in response to a number of late comers with input, I voiced the following sentiment:

I’d only be open to delaying the release if we found out that somebody misspelled “shut down” in a sentence, given the immediate proximity of the U and the I keys.

I expected at least one snicker. Nothing. Not even a grimace.
