Greatest Tech Exchange Ever?

Friend forwarded me a two-line IM exchange between himself and Project Manager. Initial testing has been underway for a few days and bug reports are trickling in to him on a web-based system with dozens of screens:

Engineer: Which cancel button is the tester talking about?
PM: The red one.

As opposed to a more definitive answer, such as one providing the url of the page in question, the PM answered "the red one."

What? This hypothetical PM I know does this kind of thing to her team all the time. They love me for it!

Hmm. The hypothetical PM brings in baked goods a lot, doesn't she?
