Usually there is nothing funny about a missing pet, but the tale of Missy the lost cat is hilarious. It serves as an example of just how clueless your fellow employees can be, and why you should never ask the designers to drop what they're doing, and help with a personal matter.
Never tell people how to do things. Tell them WHAT to do and they will
surprise you with their ingenuity.
-- Gen. George S. Patton, Jr.
