This is entirely her fault. Everyone at the company should know by now not to trust Wally to get anything done.

Everytime I see Wally pull a stunt like this, I can't help but think that he would get fired if he lived in the real world.

Afterthoughts imply prethoughts. In the middle, the Zen of Wally.....

Wally could have been a manager in our IT department. The only way to know their requirements or program changes was to read their lips after meetings as they held new, imaginary meetings in their heads. Failing that, then came the consequences.

"Jack, you didn't meet my expectations."
"What expectations do you mean?"
"The ones I issued at the last meeting."
"Was I at that meeting?"
"Did you send a memo outlining these expectations?"
"Well, can you tell me what they are?"
"I don't remember them."
"How can I meet them if you don't tell me what they are?"
"You're a professional -- you're supposed to know these things."

How can I read his mind if he doesn't have one?

Wally is in the first phase of the design which is commonly known as the "Contemplation Phase." Outwardly, it is indistinguishable from the "Pre-Contemplation Preparation Sub-Phase" commonly referred to as the "Goofing Off Phase" or "Looking Busy Phase". Wally is living proof that you can't be too thorough.
