Jennifer who have met me irl can back me up there too.
Earlier today I was cripplingly Si, actually. Was so stressed that I couldn't comprehend my coworker's instructions regarding a report I had to write, unless it fit into the report template I was using.
Me: "I don't understand what you want from this. I can't use a corporation template or a foundation template because this report is about three different things, none of which are corporations OR foundations. This one is a SUBSIDIARY of a corporation, so I don't know whether I should include information about the parent company?? The format of the template means it has to be about one thing, so does that mean I have to write three reports?? Or just one with added sections? How many added sections would be required?? None of this makes sense with the template."
Coworker: "I don't know why you're confused. Just write the background information."
Me: "BUT THE TEMPLATE."
(Etc. It got resolved.)
