Death By Specification(cukeup)

With powerful tools like cucumber comes great responsibility. Is the power going to your head? Have you ever had thoughts like:

* I'm going to lock my customers in a room and make them type gherkin until their heads bleed
* I've given the developers EXACTLY what the app should do. Why are they still talking to me?
* FIFTEEN Scenarios! For a log in form??!?
* We need 6 people to spend 6 hours detailing a feature we MIGHT implement?
