On Thumping the Head against the Wall

The difference a night of sleep makes.

I wanted last night to thump my head against the wall. Either that or break out the red pen and bleed it on a document.

I was given a document to review, a training guide to a new program at work. The sales tracking chart the guide explains is in itself fairly self-explanatory. The training guide itself, though, is about as clear as mud with wild shifts in tone, grammar, and sentence structure. In a single paragraph the document might go from The-Voice-On-High to a sympathetic voice and back.

My temptation to edit or rewrite the document (it’s short–less than ten pages) seems to have abated.
