we have been called once to assist a MNC you all know with a simple software problem problem. A guy from India was working on the problem since weeks, months or years without result.

When I asked him for the sources, he showed me the executable.

You think now that this was a misunderstanding. No, he thought that the executable is what is needed to debug the program. He could not show me the source code of the executable.

I could not stop laughing what did not make the people very happy there.
