Let's say I work for Acme and I have to use a third party web service from Contoso.
I had two issues with Contoso, one was that I needed some IP addresses white listed, the other that I get a 500 (Internal Server Error) whenever I call their service.
My manager at Acme, John, told me I had to send a request to the service desk at Stark Industries for the IP white listing.
However, I got in contact with our contact person at Contoso, Jane, about the 500, so I thought I'd ask about the IP white listing as well.
Jane handles the 500, but tells me to go to John for the IP white listing.
John already told me to go to Stark Industries, so I send them an email instead (sending John a CC).
Now I get an email from John that he actually meant the Acme help desk.
So I send a new email to Acme and Stark Industries to tell them my request was actually for Acme and Stark Industries may ignore it.
Acme now sends my request to John.
John reminds them that they are the ones to handle these requests.
Acme remembers, apologizes, and sends the request to... *drum roll* JANE at Contoso!
The circle is complete! Laugh | :laugh:

And that's how you keep way too many people busy with a simple request Big Grin | :-D
Meanwhile my IP still isn't white listed (of course) Sigh | :sigh:
