I have recently had to take over some work from a colleague, and the acceptance criteria might as well say something like this. Preconditions that are virtually impossible for the uninitiated to pick up. ¬†How will the ‘Given’ be achieved, pray tell? ¬†Proof, if ever any were needed, that User Stories often don’t give you the whole story (to coin a phrase) and have to be accompanied by something else. It amazes me how many people still don’t get the message.
