Do you ever see something at work that seems dumb, and then you spend the rest of the day second guessing yourself why they did it that way? Surely it's not as simple as I'm making it and I'm missing something, otherwise why would they have done it that way?

I did that for a while today. As far as everything was labeled and I could tell, someone spent a lot of money to do something dumb, and I didn't want to replicate it when I updated some stuff that was involved.

Turns out I was in fact missing something, which was essentially institutional knowledge that made something that seemed like one thing actually be something else.

At least we figured it out eventually, and I learned something, which is a good day at work if I learn something.
