Filenames Fallacy

Working on our site and needed some product details from our dear leader the Marketing Lead. Received “Store_CATALOGUE MASTER (2) - Copy - Copy - Copy.xlsm”.

Smash head against desk, rename file to “Store_Catalogue_12122013.xlsm”

1 hour later, mail from dear leader. “Oh shit, I sent you the wrong file, there are so many of them on my desktop, we all make those sorta mistakes right?”

Receive new file: “Store_CATALOGUE MASTER (2) - Copy - Copy (2).xlsm”
