We also heard some more statements to add to the stupid thoughts list.
- “When I got here, I only knew how to say 3 in Spanish – which meant I had to be really committed to whatever I was asking for.” Really?
- While looking at the murals in the Romanesque Gallery, which were from various small churches, one person says “ So, then you think they moved and re-built these here?” … um, as opposed to building the museum around them?
- And what happens when you ask a very literal person (we are at an RE conference after all!) a specific question. I was surprised to hear this person only brought one pair of shoes. So I asked “You wore your shoes on the plane then?” thinking maybe he packed a dress pair and wore another pair. His response was perfect “Well usually yes, I worry about foot fungi. I mean if it’s a long flight, I might consider taking them off, but it depends on the feeling I have at the time.” To his credit he answered the very question I asked!
- In the context of guessing the length of the tunnel “How far are we now?”…”We’re at one..”Where did we start?”…..”Uh, zero – where else would we have started? Negative?”
And with that, thanks for the good memories RE’08 friends! We learned a lot, some about requirements, a bit about ourselves, and a lot about our colleagues.
