State your requirements correctly

My brother sent me this joke, which made me laugh so hard. Thought I would share it with you. Might be an old joke too, but what the hell 😛

Problem about being in IT. You go by requirements.

Wife said, “Honey, please go to super market and get 1 bottle of milk. If they have bananas, bring 6”.

He came back with 6 bottles of milk.

She said ” Why the hell did you buy 6 bottles of milk?”


He still do not understand why his wife scolded him after his reply. 😯

Trust me, we see this day in and day out at work. Unless you state it very clearly, it is so easy for people to misinterpret the requirements or take things very literally 😉
