Bad Quote Quotient: The Fugure is Sometime

We work with a lot of clients on a daily basis who don't really know what is coming up for them. And this is completely understandable, since most of them are working with us for the first time. Even people who work here don't always know what our timeframes are like, so - really - it's totally understandable.

Even so, some of our clients want us to predict. To prognosticate. To tell them what the next few days/weeks/months will be like as they work with us.

When they ask, we tell them - to the best of our calendaring skills will allow - what to expect and when.

Some of them, well... there are those special few whom we suggest might want to expect an editor in the future. Like the one this week who posed the following query, of sorts:

"A guide to the fugure would be much appreciated."

On the one hand, you really can't disagree with that. After all, a timeline - or maybe a map? - would definitely be helpful to discern the fugure.

On the other hand, I'm not entirely certain I want to agree with it, either - at least until I fugure out what it means.
