I work in a medium-ish office with many internal clients. When I came back from my lunch, I had one of our forms on my desk with my name on it. Since there was no related email, missed calls, or anything aside from my name in the margin of the form, I recycled it. Fast-forward a bit, and my coworker leans in to say “Hey [client] wants you to call him. Something about a form?”

After much back-and-forth, it turns out that there are two forms with similar titles, and he wants me to change three words in title of this form to clarify what they’re for.

Apparently the easiest way to do that is to: find the form > print it > write (only) my name in the margin > carry it upstairs > tell a random coworker to have me call him > wait for my call > tell me the changes.

It’s a revision process designed by Rube Goldberg. I want to drop in some sarcasm about email or something, but literally every step of that process could have been easier.
