  1. NOTE: I don’t think this means what he thinks this means…
    private bool EvaluateSimplePhrase(a, b, c, d, e, f, g)
  2. NOTE: Is that possible outside of a trailer park?
    public bool AreChildrenParents(…)
  3. NOTE: Shouldn’t that return more than just a bool?
    public bool GetTransactionSeqAndInitialJobCharacteristics(…)
  4. NOTE: Sounds illegal, if you ask me
    private int InsertChildrenIntoParents()
  5. NOTE: You’re right…an informative message isn’t necessary. Just the ObjectID will do.
    public void LogObjectID(objectID)
