Not at all implausible. I receive an *incredible* amount of mail of
the form "I can't find my instructions on how to do XYZ".

What's even more astounding is the percentage of said mail that comes
from people purporting to be full professors, university vice
presidents, and CEOs of companies, and therefor literate enough to
read the 'Please save these instructions for future reference' that
they were sent....
