I'll go you one better.  The manager threw the sizable, although 
well-indexed, manual that we wrote across the room in frustration on second 
shift at my last site -- despite the fact that it held the solution to his 
problem and was easily accessed.  Seems that the manager couldn't _READ_, so 
he threw the FM rather than admit that fact to his subordinates.  Sometimes, 
even the best of intentions can go astray...
