Jane Carnall notes that a developer has finished some documentation that
seems to have many errors and problems, but everyone else does not want to
delay the document or take the time to fix it.

I agree with other posts that Jane shouldn't spend much time worrying about
this document or trying to fix it. But she could take 15 minutes or so to do
a few things to gently point out that this document could be better.

For example, she could return it with a brief note to the developer (and/or
other relevant parties) saying something like, "Glad to see you were able to
work on this document without me. If you can wait until Monday, I have some
ideas as to how I can make it even more clear to our customers. In case this
can't wait, I noted a few of my ideas and questions in the margins." Then
note a *few* suggestions and/or questions in the margins.
