spec writing for the PHB

Ok, so who thinks of Dilbert’s boss when reading this snippet from a product spec PDF:

Dimension 25mm x 115mm x 75mm (when laying flat);
115mm x 25mm x 75mm (standing up)

I really, really hope that was put in there after an inane comment in a meeting… If the writer was actually serious about that, then I fear for the future of all documentation: at the very least they could have included the size of the stand and made it a useful statement.
