So the cold space guy and the hurr durr durr guy
needed to mess with an almost-sealed contract (meaning it's sealed, but it lacks a stamp and a number).
They did some clever manipulations with the seal, Hurr Durr replaced the offending page with a new and improved version and assembled the stack of pages together, making it look like the seal wasn't tampered with. The space guy (Hurr's actual boss and my nominal boss) went to hand it over to the legal department.
Minutes later, he comes back and says in that quiet and warm voice so that I instantly realize that something hilarious must have happened, "Uh, you know, our contract wasn't accepted."
I look out.
They screwed up the page order. Page three was the first one with the text starting mid-sentence, page one was stuck somewhere in the middle. Okay, knowing our legal department, you can slip anything by them (I know I did), but not when they need to actually fill in the blank on the first page and the first page magically isn't there.
"Dude, how should I know? You should've told me to check this shit!"
