I always wish we had a plan to stuff we did, but no, you can't get the big bosses here to make specs for anything, everything starts out nice and simple and ends up as a fucking monster *sigh*

@sotolf that's pretty much every north-american road on the left. i could use it as a screensaver on my car gps, nobody would notice the difference.

@sotolf I feel you, know these kinds of projects too well ...

@sotolf if it makes you feel better the requirements we deal with at $work are usually something along the lines of "do the thing".

@splatt9990 Do the thing is the best kind usually the problem is that the next week comes "do this thing as well" and it's something that clashes with all the design decisions that you used in the first thing.
