Back in the late 90's I worked at a large bank on the West Coast. I was a software developer working on the bank's ATM tracking software (all of the who, what, where ATM data)

One internal client said; "I want to be able to see my data my way."

and I thought, that's perfectly acceptable. That's my job to help everyone out. So I asked; "What do you mean by 'you're way.'?"

Her response; "I don't know."

Ok, I can give her some ideas... and then the next obvious question; "What is your data?"

Her response; "I don't know."

I was able to go back to her desk later and show her the various data groups we had and let her know a few ways of which I could deliver it to her. So, in the end she got what she wanted. I simply find it amazing that someone would say such a thing and have no idea what they really wanted.
