“If you can’t test it, it is not working”

This week I heard/read many misused words (untested) from many people. Words like “Transition plan” or “Best practices”. “We should be done by tomorrow”. “Should” sends a false sense of security. A better translation of it is “we are having a lot of trouble”. Best Practices means: I don’t know what they are. “It is Better” is too broad to mean anything. “Transition Plan” gets translated to: I don’t know how to handle this problem. The list goes on and on. It you can't test what you say why bother ... "Wasting people's time is the biggest sin."
