We were in a detail design review meeting, and one of the participants asked the designer, "Can you walk me through this sequence diagram?" In my mind I pictured two of the attendees holding up the pages of the sequence diagram, which was 4 pages taped together, and then the designer holding the participants hands, skipping through the held up diagram.

Usually all I visualize during meetings are large piles of horse manure!

"Join me in a cup of coffee?"

"Don't think we'll both fit!"

No, no, no. Didn't you learn in kindergarten how to fold then cut a single sheet of paper (8-1/2 by 11, A4, whatever) such that it unravels into this huge loop that a person can walk through?

That's what I would've done.

(Then I'd probably later get a talking-to from a supervisor about my disruptive behavior at meetings...)

Thats what happens in most of the meetings/interviews. People come unprepared [rather without having a look at the document] ..just carrying the printouts with them and then they expect author to explain it so that they can point out flaws !!
