Scene: [Working as a web developer in the online banking area at a LARGE financial institution. Creating a new online form.]
Legal Dept: We need to make sure this legal disclaimer is conspicuous.
Me: Okay, per our styleguide, we put all disclaimers in small type at the bottom of the form.
Legal: That's too small. It needs to be more obvious. Can you make it bigger?
Me: No, per our styleguide, the disclaimer text cannot be altered.
Legal: Well, can you make it all CAPS?
Me: Sure, I guess so.
[I make the disclaimer all CAPS and send over for review]
Legal: It still isn't bold enough. Can you make it red?
Me: Make the text red? No, our styleguide doesn't allow for red text.
Legal: How about blinking? Can you make the disclaimer blink?
Me: [trying not to laugh out loud at the thought of red blinking text on a bank's website] No, absolutely not.
Legal: Okay, well I guess all CAPS will have to do.
