Number 2. And I would say something. Not necessarily to upset the apple cart, but to make sure that management is aware that the "preferred" method is not so preferred because of the vagueness and/or the inaccuracies of the documentation.
Besides if something goes wrong, they'll ask why didn't you follow procedure and you'll end up sounding like you are making excuses "But, the documentation..."
I have done that (it was always my favoured option), since I was being yelled at by the MD (not this company) for not coming to him with an issue when he was taking a major customer on factory tour and then I showed him the email from six months previous from him which basically said 'I know we, all know the problem is known just don't tell any one' and the famous 'Go forth and multiply with your problem', he went a strange colour and the customer was not impressed!
It's a daily game we play: one player sets a "cryptic clue" and everyone else has four hours to solve it. If you succeed, you get to post the next one. (full rules here: OriginalGriff - Professional Profile[^] )
For example, a recent one of mine was "Outstanding part of lover duet? (7)"
The bit in brackets means "seven letters".
The whole solution is "OVERDUE", which is contained in "lOVER DUEt"
Or perhaps "Queen is unable to enter eighty chains for trading (10)"
is unable CAN'T
eighty chains MILE
MERCANTILE - trading.
The next one is up Monday at 09:00 UK time, and it looks at the moment like I'll be doing it. Give it a go, and see if you can solve it!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
