The Document is Incomplete

A Conversation

“Do you have page 30 of the A-239 form?”

“It should be right there.”

“I don’t see it.”

“Well, it was there when I brought it in.”

“Without page 30 I cannot accept this.”

“Look again.”

“Listen sir, without the page the document is incomplete.”

“You didn’t look.”

“It’s missing sir.”

“I don’t think so. Look again.”

“It would do no good to look again. The paper is clearly missing.”

“Give them to me. I’ll look.”

“I’m sorry sir. Once the document is submitted it can’t be unsubmitted.”

“It hasn’t really gone into the hopper yet. Let me at least look.”

“Sir, this is highly unusual.”

“See, it’s just out of order: Page 30 was stuck after page 32.”

“I’ll have to start over again. Do you have the A-300 document?”
